Concrete would fill it permanently but would be rather expensive. Well compacted clay would be adequate in most cases. It would probably be better to break it up and remove it then replace with soil and grade.
One shovel at a time
Solar heating systems are a cost effective way to heat a 20,000 gallon inground pool. A high efficiency heat pump is another inexpensive way to heat a large inground pool.
Is this an above ground pool or an inground pool? The type of pool you have will determine the best way to answer your question.
purchase one from a reputable supplier
We always filled ours with a garden hose and it took forever. You can have a water truck fill it up, but that costs money. We filled it until the water was half way up the skimmer hole. Good luck.
with the use of skilled professionals to dive the pool and pressure test the lines
Answer: Contact the local fire department, ask them if you can use your pool as a resivoir. They will use your pool as a supply source for fighting fires if neccessary. They will fill it for free. But in the case of a local fire, you may find no water in the pool. cost effective...YES! Some fire departments still do this.Some dont. Hope this helps.
Vacuum the pool. If you have to drain it, only drain it half way. Floating pools are a disaster.
Believe it or not, some communities consider swimming pools as "in ground" storage tanks and must follow strict guidelines for filling them in. Check with your local city zoning people.
Generally...no. In simplest terms, an above ground pool pump is a flooded suction pump, which means the water level must be higher than the pump for it to operate, and an inground pump has the ability to draw water up from a level lower than the pump. The engineering and structure of these two different types of pumps is what makes them work the way they do. This means that, in a typical installation, you could use an inground-specific pump on an above ground pool, but not an above ground pump on an inground pool with the water level below the pump.
Yes.. If the lite ring or facering are corroded the chemical ballance has been way off..
