‹ Back to FAQs I never use my swimming pool. Is there a way to cover it permanently?

01 March 2012
It’s not a good idea to fill in or permanently cover an old swimming pool. A better solution is to build a temporary deck over your swimming pool so you can remove it if you decide to sell your home later. A pool can add value to your home.

Plus, if you fill in a pool and hide it under the dirt, you must disclose that fact when you sell your home. And the excavation costs for a new pool in the location where the old one was could be astronomical.

Rosie recommends that you cover your unused pool with a deck made from a composite material like composite wood.
