This pool is about 40 years old, and while it was still in good condition the owners didn’t use it any more. There were several factors that made this job particularly challenging. One, because the pool had been built on a hillside, the weight of compacted soil and vibration from compaction could be a problem. Two, there was only 24 inches of access.
To eliminate the weight and vibration problem, the majority of the pool shell was fill with high density foam. We then capped it with compacted fill. Because of the limited access, a conveyor system was used to import the backfill materials. The existing wood deck on the back side of the pool was left intact.
As you can see the transformation is quite amazing. The owners refinished the wood deck and created a rockscape in the pool area. Very nice and maintenance free!
