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 we arrive 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.

Completed Pool Removals in CT


View Before & After Photos

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.

Now you see it...now you don't. Like magic, shrubs were removed, pool was drained and filled in, surrounding patio gone and all affected lawn areas seeded and hay covered. The process couldn't have gone more smoothly and the yard looks great. We're happy to recommend Grillo Pool Removal and give them this 5 star rating.

We hired Sean Grillo and his company to fill in an old in-ground pool. The job also entailed multiple small landscaping projects ranging from ripping out 20+ feet of shrubbery, burying large boulders, leveling land, etc. Patrick completed these projects for us--there are truly not enough words to explain how wonderful he is. Patrick was such a pleasure to work with--he did such a wonderful job with everything we asked of him. The excavation was completed in a timely fashion—Patrick is very meticulous with his work. Sean and his team were incredibly responsive, affordable, and approachable. Any questions we had about the project, they explained them in detail and made sure we were happy with the results. From start to finish, we were BLOWN away by how professional he and his team were. If you are looking for high quality service from a contractor who is trustworthy, will go above and beyond your expectations, and support you throughout the process, hire Grillo Pool Removal. We could not be more grateful and happy with their services!

We made the decision last year to demolish our inground, gunite swimming pool. Having just moved to CT we resorted to an internet search for potential contractors. We are forever grateful that we came across Grillo Services. From our first phone conversation, Sean Grillo alleviated much of the stress and uncertainty built into such a daunting process. We always felt supported, as he navigated us through all of the permitting, wetlands, open space and weather issues. (Not to mention his sensitivity and responsiveness to our occasional last-minute queries and nervous requests.)We also owe great thanks to Sean’s awesome, reliable and professional crew on the ground – Gene, Sidney and Patrick – with their artistry and technical skills they went above and beyond our expectations in the demolition and landscaping process.In the end, we believe we received more than what we bargained for from Grillo Services; and in Sean Grillo we found a personable and professional businessman, contractor and new friend.Dennis and Charlene ReesRidgefield, CT
