What would you like to do?
How do you go about filling in and landscaping over a swimming pool?
I'm facing this problem now, with the city authorities after me to take care of it (with less than 28 days notice!) The pool, an inground gunite kidney-shaped beauty heaved out of the ground shortly after we bought the house. It seems it will need a drainage pipe and/or (??) get broken down the bottom, get filled with dirt and the upended side either broken up (more money) or, which I like, turned into a stone fence. Inside will be a garden area. Good luck. Just be sure to break it up at the bottom. I heard of one guy who didn't do this and he had a swamp in his backyard for two years before going back at it again.

Yes you can, however you have to be careful you do not burn the well pump up. run the pump for an hour then shut the hose off let the pump cool down, for about 20 min then rep…eat the process until the desired level is reached. Well water for poolYes.
Answer Not gunnite. Plastic lined MIGHT be OK
Answer After you add all of the chemicals that are needed (get your water tested at a pool dealer) usually the next day at the longest.
Yes. Go to a search engine such as google.com and type in "company that fills swimming pools" and you can find them.
If you just dump dirt into it you may end up with a situation where water stays within the pools area leading to boggy ground so to make the ground behave like the surro…unding area you will need to have some point where excess water can drain into the natural ground.
That depends on how quickly you put water in it. with a hose at home it should take about a day.
it takes ruffley 2 hours
Yes but not a good idea.
Bust up all the concrete... Bust out all the PVC piping. Fill in with dirt. Check your local codes on water removal.
Yes Indeed I intend on filling a whole swimming pool with pink lemonade
There is no point going past a perticular point as it will just be a waste of time and money.
No, it is not healthy. Water from irrigation can have runoff that includes pesticides and fertilizer.
Your hair relly badly frizzes up!!
From your outdoor water spigot or if it is really big, you can buy water trucks from certain companies.
it would take a lot of dirt. Probably as mush as how much water would fill it. Maybe even more than that.
Depends on how deep it is... If its waist high or above then of course!!
