    Default Filled In Pool Comment

    Does anyone have a good comment for a pool that has been filled in. We don't have many pools in this area and I ran across one that has been filled in today. Thanks for the assistance.

    Are you referring to an inground pool?
    Yes, disclaim the entire thing, and refer it back to a qualified person.

    To properly decommission an abandoned inground pool, several steps are required, and in my area, a building permit is also needed.

    At a minimum, holes must be bored through the floor if the concrete or formwork isn't removed (either partially or completely).
    Electrical/plumbing need removal or proper termination.
    Proper fill must be installed and compacted (frequently done incorrectly).

    Since it's already been filled-in, no one is really to able to simply confirm the details. Advise your clients to research the historical data concerning this pool's history or the steps used to "remove" or otherwise fill-in the pool.
