Removing a Swimming PoolThe pool removal link talks about 3 ways to remove a swimming pool and gives you a cost breakdown so you can estimate how much it'll cost to remove your 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.

Check with your local government to see if you need a permit and inspection when you do this.

I would like for you to please remove the alligator from my swimming pool. Yes, there's an alligator in my swimming pool. I suppose the alligator mistook my swimming pool for the nearby pond.

You don't "remove it" You fill it in with dirt and pack it firmly.

To remove rust from the water in a swimming pool, shock the pool until the water is clear of everything other than the rust staining. Then run the filter, backwashing frequently until the rust is gone.

No, you do not have to. You just have to be careful not to swim into them.
