Introduced to the home amenities market many years ago as a significantly less-expensive alternative to inground pools, above ground swimming pools can be found in practically all parts of the country. Easy to maintain and delivering all the fun of their inground counterparts, above ground pools lack in longevity. These become dilapidated over time and it’s helpful to know the best above ground swimming pool removal tips.
About Above Ground Pool Disposal
Now, before we even get to the nitty-gritty of teardown, it’s first beneficial to think about your above ground pool disposal. That’s right. If you aren’t going to re-erect it later on at some point, you’ll have to dispose of it responsibility. And, that’s far more of a chore than you probably think.
There are several reasons for taking an above ground pool down, but regardless of why you are doing it, the concern is how to do it. When you take the pool apart, it is important to do it in the proper order so that nothing, including yourself is at risk. If you have the original boxes that all of the parts came in, it is a big help in the dismantling process, but by no means is it essential. --Hunker.com
After all, an above ground pool disposal means dealing with very different materials. Which means it will involve recycling disparate materials. In other words, you won’t just be able to drop it off at the local dump. (If you want to skip this part, just call a junk hauling service and be done with it in a jiffy.)
Owings Mills DIY Above Ground Pool Removal Guide
The easiest way to tear down an above ground swimming pool is to go in reverse order of its assembly.
- Drain the pool. Some people choose to puncture the metal through the inner liner and let it drain out in a particular direction. There are also pumps available you can use to siphon all the water out of the pool. Regardless of how, all the water will have to be drained to dismantle the pool.
- Unfasten the pool liner. If you plan on saving it, put it to the side for cleaning later on, then allow it to dry completely before folding it up and storing it.
- Take down each individual wall. Now, you can remove each separate wall from the frame. Generally, there are two metals involved — aluminum and steel. You should separate these if you’re going to scrap the whole thing or if you plan to put the pool up again.
