Factors Affecting Above Ground Pool Removal Pricing

There are a number of things that can affect the cost of your specific above ground pool removal.

Common factors that influence the total cost of above ground pool removal include:

  • Size of the pool.
  • Location and accessibility of the pool.
  • Type of materials being removed (pool material, stairs, deck, fence, landscaping, etc.)
  • Whether or not the pool needs to be emptied.
  • Who you hire.

Generally speaking, people also have a set of stairs, some decking material, and potentially some surrounding landscaping or fencing materials to get rid of in addition to the pool.

The more material you have to get rid of, the more your total project cost will be.

Similarly, the bigger your above ground pool, the more it will cost to remove it.

If your pool is still full of water, it will be another fee to safely drain it and get it ready for removal.

Another overlooked factor that affects pool removal costs is the contractor you hire to do it.

Each contractor offers different levels of customer service and different prices, and not all contractors are created equal.

Because of this, we recommend reaching out to multiple contractors for quotes to compare them.

This will help you get a great price for your above ground pool removal and great customer service, too.
