There are a number of companies in the Perth area that will remove fibreglass swimming pools without charge. While this sounds fantastic on the surface, as the old adage goes nothing in life is free. First off, let’s take a look at why it is that any company would want to spend thousands of dollars of its own money to remove your fibreglass pool for free.
The intention on their part is to refurbish the pool and onsell it to someone else.
That means it has to be in extremely good condition or they’re probably going to refuse to help you.
As we mentioned about you’ll also need to make sure the pool is fibreglass, concrete and brick liner pool owners have no choice but to make the investment.
You will also find that companies that remove swimming pools for free in Perth will not accept jobs with narrow access. That means that if there is not at least a 1.9m wide access way to your swimming pool then you’re going to almost certainly incur additional expense.
Things can go very, very wrong if you have the wrong contractor on the job. While the above video relates to installing and not removing a pool, if you don’t have the experts on the job – installing or removing – you could have some problems.
The goal of companies that offer this service is to obtain your pool as quickly as possible. While we’re not suggesting that they will be irresponsible, you can expect to be left with a giant hole in your yard, companies that to provide free backfill will not do it on the day and in practise often not until several days later.
We do charge for swimming pool removal, we also work with any kind of pool and can provide for narrow access jobs. We’ll also help organise backfilling, compacting and (if you need one) a compaction certificate to satisfy council if you want to construct something like a granny flat where the pool used to be.
With fibreglass we are usually in and out in less than a day, concrete and liner pools can take a little longer. Our customer feedback speaks for itself, don’t trust your yard to a cowboy who doesn’t care – trust Pool Removal Perth to get the job done. Click here for your quote.
We’ve been removing swimming pools in Perth for many years and there are some pretty consistent reasons that homeowners decide to bite the bullet and get rid of their pool. Here are 9 that come up all the time.
Back when you had a young family your swimming pool played a central role in the leisure activities in your home. Now you’re older and they’ve got families of their own then the costs of owning the pool are just no longer justifiable.
If you, or the previous owner of your property, has not kept on top of the maintenance that every pool requires then it doesn’t take much for problems to develop. In many cases this can make your pool unsafe.
If you’re not going to use it it could require thousands of dollars a year in maintenance. Get it taken out as a part of your other remodeling and you won’t even notice the cost. Imagine what you could do with all that extra space!
You’d like some more indoor space and you’ve got a huge, unused pool right in the way of your new extension. A great reason to get rid of your pool and a great time to do it as a part of the other renovations.
Owning a pool comes with energy costs, water costs, chemicals and other expenses (especially when it comes to local council regulations being changed). It may well be the case that you’ve just got better things to do with the money. Pools are also not very environmentally friendly!
After decades of family fun Marie found herself with a pool in her yard that was taking up space, costing money and causing additional work on her part.
The solution was to remove the pool but she had a lot of questions and needed a bit of reassurance that she was making the right choice.
After speaking with Adam Martelletti of Pool Removal Perth she came to a good understanding of what was involved and decided to go ahead.
After we finished the job we asked her how she thought it went, here is what she had to say:
The pool has had 2 generations of families having fun, however now it is rarely used. Therefore the high maintenance and cost of running a pool are no longer a high priority.
Most definitely consider it, I have now replaced it with artificial lawn and couldn’t be happier, now I’m saving money and I have a reduced workload.
Firstly, we spoke with Adam Martelletti on speaker phone who explained all the options to us. Adam was very patient, helpful and extremely courteous from this first phone call through to the completion of the job. We were quite anxious on the day the pool was about to be removed and in two minds as to whether we were doing the right thing. When we expressed this to Adam he allayed our fears and reassured us that it’s a normal reaction of customers as it is a big decision and a huge job.
Adam’s employees Matt and Shane were also very polite and hardworking. They took a day and a half to complete the job and didn’t miss a beat.
We actually made lunch for them in the hope they would take a break, which was gratefully received.
After 5 truckloads of sand were delivered we thought there would be a huge cleanup for us but Matt and Shane left the front and back looking very neat and tidy.
Pool Removal Perth made the pool removal experience a pleasant one.
I would definitely recommend you because you and your employees are genuine hard working people who did a great job, with a minimum of fuss and a lot of patience.
I’ve included some photos. You will see there is a hole in the artificial grass so we can plant a tree where the pool once was.

Geoff in Beechboro was looking to remove a pool that he was no longer using. The family had already flown the coop and it just didn’t make sense to spend thousands of dollars a year for the upkeep of the pool when they hardly used it.
He called the experts and we had the pool gone and backfilled within a few hours, we asked Geoff a few questions about his experience and what advice he’d give to other Perth homeowners who are considering biting the bullet, saving money, reclaiming their backyard and getting rid of their swimming pool.
Here’s what he said:
What was the problem you were experiencing before you decided to remove your pool?
No real problems,just that looking forward to the future we couldn’t see that the pool would be used as much as it should be considering the time & effort to keep in good working condition,also the continued expense in maintaining the pool again in good condition.
What would you say to anyone considering removing their pool?
Just make sure you have weighed up all the pros & cons regarding leaving the pool in or removing & if the decision is to remove then also consider what you have to do to your property to tidy the situation up after the pool is removed & make sure you can visualise what the end result will be,also what was important to us was the fact that we didn’t have to have a crane to lift the pool over our house as what happened when it was installed,it just eliminates another cause for concern.
Tell me what your experience has been with our services?
Exceptional, in this day & age,
Why would you recommend us to someone else?
Basically because you delivered what you said you would & in an acceptable time frame, excellent communication between yourself & client,affordable price compared to other options & the job is done in one day.
Is there anything you would like to add?
Probably the only thing that I would have liked which in the end would have been better for me was to have had more cover sheets available to lay on the paving which probably would have helped to reduce the amount of sunken paving bricks that I now have to fix up.
