Removal Procedure

We can remove any type of pool, including: vinyl liner, concrete, and fiber glass.

How does the pool removal procedure work with Atlantic Equipment Corp (AEC)? Well, it all begins with a no obligation phone call, where you talk directly to AEC's owner, not a salesman or company representative. We will discuss any concerns you may have, as well questions regarding pool removal. You will be asked a few things about your pool, so that we can better serve you. Then, if you choose to proceed with us, we will set a time for a site visit that fits your schedule.

At the no cost, no obligation site inspection, we will take various measurements, as well as thoroughly inspect the pool, as well as the overall site. We will look at the pool materials and other items needing to be removed, such as fences, cabanas, etc. We also look at the landscaping, bushes and trees, which need to be saved. We will inspect the access to the pool area, and choose the appropriate machinery from our fleet to complete your pool removal, the most efficient way and with the least amount of disturbance.

Shortly after you will receive a no cost, no obligation itemized quote, detailing a complete scope of work and a fixed cost. If you choose to proceed with us, you will receive a contract with the complete scope of work, as well as a payment schedule. Remember AEC does not require a down payment and no payment will be needed until the day we begin the removal process. You will also receive a certificate of insurance. Remember to always require a certificate of insurance from any contractor doing work on your property. If any one were to get hurt and their employer does not have insurance, you as the homeowner would be exposing yourself to a possible lawsuit.

AEC will then complete and submit your permit application. We will also begin preparing your pool for demolition, which includes marking existing utilities and removing the water. When AEC is notified that your permits are ready, we will pick them up and a demo date can be scheduled.

The day of demo all utilities will be disconnected and the entire pool will be removed. This will include all steel, wood, concrete, plastic and pool equipment. All demo materials will be disposed of, at an approved recycling facility. Some contractors may suggest you bury the concrete, as some municipalities will allow this practice if the concrete is small enough, however, AEC does not recommend this to be done.  However, AEC will bury the pool if the customer prefers. Our many years of experience have shown us that in the future, if you decide to sell your property, this can become a serious and costly problem. A prospective buyer may have reservations about purchasing a property with those conditions, due to the future cost of removing this debris, if they should decide to install a pool.

After approval of township inspectors the filling stage can proceed. AEC only uses fill material approved by the township inspector, as well as AEC owners. Most fill material is taken from our own site, so that the high quality of the material can be maintained. After the fill and compaction process, the area is graded for proper drainage. Any rocks will be removed and screened topsoil will be graded over the area. All disturbed areas will receive seed and straw mulch. You will receive proper instructions on how to water new lawn.

AEC will then get final approval from township inspectors. We guarantee all our work and always provide high-quality care, due to our practice of having a company owner on every job, from start to finish.
