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.

Thanks for the feedback!
That depends on where you are. In Australia pools are filled up with normal tap water unless there are water restrictions on. then you would have to get a permit to fill… a new pool. pool top ups in the major city's are done from the normal tap at any time subject to local government regulations. If you live in a place like Whitecliffs Australia you would have buy the water to be delivered by tanker.
Not really. Waterspouts require a much larger body of water to form, such as a lake. However, there are land based cousins of waterspouts called landspouts. In structure they …are more like waterspouts than normal tornadoes. It is possible for one to strike a swimming pool, but it would be purely coincidental.
660,000 gallons of water
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.
Fill your pool Yes, it's ok to fill from a well. It is smart to have the water tested. A pool supply comapny should be able to do this. The exception would be …filling from a shallow well that may contain pesticides or petroleum (gasoline or oil). This can happen when older storage tanks rust through and the product contaminates the ground water.
Is your pool equipment equipped to handle ocean water?
Shocking should be done in order to kill the chloramines. It depends on your chlorine level. For residential pools it should be 1.5-2.5ppm. For commercial, chlorine shou…ld be 3.5-4.5ppm. If you have just shocked, don't go in the water. The chlorine is probably 10-12ppm and will cause itching and burning. Wait until the level drops to a safe level, as stated above.
Yeah but you should wear a tampon
You are doing a thorough job of sanitizing the water
get shock treatment and then chlorine
Just wait it out it will reduce naturally fairly quickly. if it is over chlorinated using a salt water chlorinator reduce the chlorinator setting so that it doesn't prod…uce as much chlorine.
I had a 15' pool and it took 3 1/2 hours to fill it
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.
Bust up all the concrete... Bust out all the PVC piping. Fill in with dirt. Check your local codes on water removal.
yes but don't do it all at once if your well is newer run it for 2 hours and let it rest for 2 hours. if the well is like 12+ only for a hour and let it rest longer. have fun …in your pool :). PS if your water starts to look dirty stop running it for 5 days . or in tell it rains this means your well is running low. you can still use your water just watch how much you use.
