How to: Above Ground Pool Removal

Valet Trash Professionals can meet all your needs for above ground pool removal in Northwest Arkansas. Above ground pools have become all the rage in recent years, but they aren’t meant to last forever. According to, above ground pools “will normally last between 5-15 yrs. It depends on the quality of the pool and the type of dirt the pool is sitting on.”

Summer is drawing to a close, swimming season is nearly over, and now you must decide what to do with your pool. If your pool is in great condition and you intend to use it again next year, now is the time to prepare it for the off-season. Off-season storage depends on if your above ground pool is steel sided, aluminum sided, or soft sided. You should always follow the manufacturer’s directions for winterizing and proper storage.

If your above ground pool has fallen into disrepair or reached the end of its life, you may be asking yourself, “How can I get rid of this pool?”

Disposing of an above-ground pool is a messy job and it won’t fit into your trash cart. So, what do you do with an old above ground pool? You have two options for getting rid of your old pool. See our piece on ELECTRONIC AND APPLIANCE REMOVAL IN NWA if you want to learn more about electronics.

DO IT YOURSELF. You can gather a few strong backs to tear it down, load it into a pick-up or onto a trailer, and drive it to the dump. Be prepared for a messy job! After you have drained and disassembled the pool, you’ll be left with a heap of parts, panels, support bars, debris, and a heavy liner. Don’t forget the pump, filter, hoses, ladder, and any accessories that also need disposing. Be prepared for long lines and dumping fees at the transfer station or landfill and use caution with your vehicle during this process. Crews will not unload for you, so be prepared for that job once you arrive. Depending on your location, your trash service may conduct a large waste collection once or twice a year. You can always pile up the pool debris, wait for the appointed date, and take advantage of your provider’s large waste disposal services, but be sure to check with your trash provider about dates, regulations, and associated costs.
