Removing (filling in) an in ground Pool (40 year old WOOD WALLS)

Posted by Saleen90181 on March 26th, 2003 06:02 PM

I have a 40 year old pool on my property - its an average size in ground pool with a 8 foot deep end
The pool has WOOD walls - yep wood walls - with a liner over them

The pool holds water - but several trees have put roots threw the wood walls and you can see/feel them behind the liner

The pool also has start to loose water when the pump is running - most likely the lines that are under my cement paito are leaking

I have recieved est above $28,000 to fix this pool
Fix isnt really what it is - they have to totaly remove everything and start fresh - including new feed and return lines

and that price does not include a new patio

So we have decided to fill it in - the problem is I can not find ANY info on how to go about something like this or est cost

at a later date I would like to maybe put a garage over this site - but the main thing right now is to fill the pool, and do it so I do not have any sink holes

Any help???
