In-Ground Pool Fill-In & Demolition Experts


Serving All of Connecticut


With over twenty years in business we have the experience to take on even the largest and most difficult in-ground swimming pools. Our in-ground pool fill in/pool removal service consists of complete removal of all parts of the old pool; the concrete walls are collapsed, pool coping is removed, and of course dirt is brought in to fill the hole. When we are finished you will have a level graded area where the pool once existed. I know that this can be an overwhelming task as I have worked with countless homeowners stressed out about the entire process. When Patrick or myself arrives to give you your free estimate we explain everything in detail to ease any and all concerns. Hiring someone to remove a pool is usually a once in a lifetime decision, we help our customers not regret who they hire to do it.

The map above shows many of the pool removals that we have completed. There are also many more that have not been added as the map was becoming quite crowded. As you can see the majority of the pools have been in Fairfield & New Haven counties, but we do work all over Connecticut. 

We Do More Than Fill In Pools

  • Masonry

    We install paver patios, retaining walls, fire pits, and anything else you can think of.

  • Demolition

    We demolish and remove sheds, decks, concrete patios, and driveways.

  • Landscape Design

    After removing your pool we can design the yard of your dreams from plantings to patios. Simply tell us what you want and we will make it a reality.

When we arrive to perform a pool fill-in/removal we bring our equipment. This consists of our excavator and often skid steer as well. While we are already there removing the pool and grading the yard, we can usually quote other projects at the home. Since we are already there with our machinery we can usually save customers money on these other projects. Some common additional work will be ripping out stumps, digging drains for gutters, grading overgrown areas of the yard. Those are small projects that we can do quickly. Additionally we can do large scale plantings, paver patios and driveways, small scale demolition of sheds or garages. Most commonly we install lawn where the pool had been, but it is also increasingly popular to install paver patios in the new space created by filling in the pool. Many homeowners have trouble picturing how big this new area will be because for years the pool has been there and the space hasn't been usable. If you are opting for a patio once the area is filled, leveled, and graded then we can layout a design for the patio. This can be done with the pool there as well but once the pool is gone you get a better visual of the area.
