Annandale, Virginia (webnewswire) July 30, 2019 – Dirt Connections, a Virginia pool removal contractor, recently released a detailed list of the pros and cons of filling in a pool. While some homeowners may feel that their pool is a worthwhile investment, others are ready to have it filled.
Homeowners who fill in their pools find that they instantly have more space to enjoy for relaxing or building new outdoor features. The space is safer because there is no drowning hazard for children, small pets, or visitors, and your homeowners insurance bill will reflect the lower liability. Removing a pool will also save you money and time on maintenance and repairs, which can cost thousands each year. With no extra chores to take on during the offseason and no risk of freezing pipes during the winter, you will be able to enjoy your time and attend to other tasks. These benefits may attract new home buyers, who may be unwilling to take on the added responsibility of a pool.
Choosing to fill a pool does have disadvantages. Pools can make summer events truly special, and if the pool is in good condition, keeping it may actually increase the value of the home. If you choose to sell your home, you must also disclose the pool filling to potential buyers, who may be concerned about the grounds stability and choose not to make a purchase. Generally, however, homeowners find that there are many advantages to going through with a pool removal.
If you choose to remove your pool, it must be drained and filled with fill dirt, which creates a stronger seal and foundation for future projects than any other type of dirt.
