About Us


hen I was young I was a fan of the saying "specialization is for insects." As I went on in life trying to be great at all sorts of different things I realized that certain things took a tremendous amount of time to master. I began to deal with professionals in various industries that were called upon for vast knowledge they had for very specific things, these people are experts in their fields. That doesn't mean they are great at everything, it simply means for their specific industry they have achieved expertise and can be relied upon for anything related to their specific niche. My niche is filling in swimming pools. I built this company to do one thing and to do it well. No matter the circumstance if you are hiring someone who is not familiar with something they aren't likely to be prepared for what can occur once the project begins. You wouldn't hire a handy man to build an entire addition, don't make the mistake of hiring a "do it all" company for your swimming pool demolition. We have experience on every type of pool in every setting. When I quote a job you can be assured that it will be done properly and will never exceed the quoted price. I feel a company should have someones name on it, someone to hold accountable. My name is Sean Grillo, and Grillo Pool Removal is the company you can trust to remove your pool, no matter the circumstances.

Benefits of filling in your pool:

  • Create a more aesthetically pleasing yard without the eyesore of a deteriorating pool
  • Free up space for entertaining
  • Pay a fraction of the cost of a pool remodel by filling it in
  • Peace of mind without the liability of an injury or drowning
  • Lower electric bills
  • Pools turn off 50% of potential buyers when selling

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 Pool Removal. 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 Pool Removal; and in Sean Grillo we found a personable and professional businessman, contractor and new friend.

Sean Grillo did a great job- start to finish. He communicated well and was very professional. Even with rain delays, Sean got the job done in a timely manner. His crew is very courteous and very hard workers. My yard looks better than ever, and I would highly recommend this contractor.Bill Lawrence (Google Review)
