Is there a way to temporarily fill an in-ground pool only for a few years?

You haven't mentioned if the pool is a vinyl liner, fiberglass or gunite. What you will do is ruin the surface of the pool. Plan on replacing a vinyl liner, re-plastering a gunite pool and I'm not sure what effect dirt would have on a fiberglass. That being said: Drain and blowout all water in all the pipes and seal with threaded plugs. Remove the pump(s), filter and heater - all the equipment and drain and clean them. Remove any pool lights and turn off the electrical to the pool.

Answeror to avoid destroying the pool if you think you may want it later simply install a solid safety cover. balance the water and winterize the equipment check and adjust pH every few months

Rather then using dirt to fill it in use sand with just a layer of dirt on top for plants or grass

Vacuum the pool. If you have to drain it, only drain it half way. Floating pools are a disaster.

That can only be because of the source of your water.

You actually can not temporarily disable an expansion pack, but you can uninstall it. I only recommend it if you have the DvD download for it.

You may mean 'temporarily' which is only for a short while.

It depends on what you are meaning by work. Many work temporarily by tightening the skin. Even surgery will only last a few years.

No, it does not. It only numbs the pain temporarily.

Keep a cover on it when you aren't using it to keep the UV rays in sunlight from hitting it, but the chlorine will bleach it out, too. Unfortunately, they only last about 10 to 12 years before you have to replace them.

If you want to vote your have to be over the age of 18. If you are only 4, you'll have to wait 14 years. If you don't want to wait that long your parent can either create a fake ballot for you to fill out or you can wait until next year to fill out a fake one in school.

Sure, I guess with some considerable expense. But only if its a concrete pool. Fill in the deep end. Chop and remove the walls. Reconfigure the entire thing. Or...get a nice portable hot tub for a fraction of the expense and hassles. Just add water and your good to go.

Yes but only if flow rates, sizing and a few other factors are worked in to the equation.
