The Main Reasons for Pool Removal

Pool are removed all the time for various reasons. We perform many pool fill in or pool removals in San Jose and these are some of the main reasons we are called out:

  1. The pool is no longer being used.
  2. The pool needs expensive repairs.
  3. The upkeep and maintenance for the pool is becoming a burden.
  4. The homeowner doesn’t want to be liable for the dangers that come with having a pool.
  5. The house came with the pool and the new buyers didn’t want it.
  6. The family (small kids, elderly, or the disabled) are in danger with the pool being on the property.
  7. The pool uses too much energy and water and the homeowner wants to be eco-friendly.
  8. The pool is using valuable space in the yard that the homeowner wants to use for something else.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter the reason you want the pool removed. It’s your property and your pool – you don’t need a reason to justify it. Bay Area Pool Demolition is here to handle all of your pool removal needs no matter the reason.

Swimming Pool Demolition Requirements in San Jose

In San Jose, before you can begin a pool demolition, you need to have a building permit. If the swimming pool is part of a community, you will also need to get clearance from San Jose’s permit center.

San Jose also requires safe & responsible recycling of the debris, which is managed by the city’s environmental services department.

If you want to build on top of your former swimming pool, you’ll also need to take a few more steps. San Jose requires a demolition, drainage and compaction plan that is approved by a state-licensed engineer, followed by a special inspection form signed by the supervising engineer, followed by a compaction report. You’ll also need to verify the natural gas line and electrical wiring have been safely capped.

Of course, if that sounds like a lot of work, there is always our way: just call Bay Area Pool Demolition and let us handle it for you! Our experience with permit offices throughout Santa Clara County means we’ll be able to give you reasonable expectations for every step in the process, so you won’t waste time trying to get your forms in order.
