Should You Remove Your Pool?


Many people have pools in their backyards. After all, there’s nothing quite like taking a plunge in a cool pool on a hot, summer day here in Florida. For some homeowners, the novelty of owning a pool has worn off, their kids have grown and moved away, or the pool has become too much of a hassle to keep up.

Do you use your pool?

For many, this is the deciding factor in their pool removal decision. After all, pools are a lot of work, and if you aren’t using them, they may not be worth it. If your kids have flown the coop and no one in your family uses the pool, you may want to consider a pool demolition service.

Does your pool need an upgrade?

Pools need refurbishing every now and then, meaning their tile and concrete need to be replaced. This can be a big expense, not to mention a hassle as your pool has to be drained and it will be out of use while it is being redone. If you don’t use your pool very much anymore and it’s old, the cost to fix it or repair it may not be worth it. Call ELEV8 in Jacksonville for pool removal instead.

Are you looking to sell your home?

If you are looking to put your Jacksonville house on the market soon, having a pool can be a Catch-22 for many potential home buyers. After all, the idea of having a pool is appealing, but the upkeep is not. In addition, families with small children may not like the risk it brings with having a backyard pool. Thus, if you have a newer pool, it can add value to your home and appeal to new home buyers. However, it can also be a negative in some instances.

Does your pool take up too much space?

Another big reason that ELEV8 Demolition performs a lot of pool demolitions is because the pool takes up a big chunk of the homeowner’s backyard. With the push towards outdoor living spaces and bringing nature to you rather than going to nature, many homeowners want to use their backyard for other features, such as rock gardens, decks, outdoor kitchens, and butterfly havens. They’d rather replace the pool with the soothing sound of a water feature that takes up a fraction of the space and requires half of the maintenance. Call us for pool demolition today!
