Building a Deck over your pool as an alternative to filling it in for abandonment.
Difficulty Rating: Expert
Beginning of June
Building a Deckover your swimming pool is a great alternative to filling it in! Not only is this a more cost effective method to abandoning your pool, but also allows you to one day re-plaster and fill the pool back up with water should you or a future owner of the house want to use the pool.
The first step is draining the pool. Make sure you check with your local municipality as many now require a permit to drain your pool.
A basic sump pump is installed in the deep end to keep the pool empty after future rains.
