How to decommission an indoor below ground pool?

Postby Spinball » Sat 31 May, 2014 09:44

Hello folks,
we have an 8m x 4m indoor pool which is fully functioning. It has an inconvenient semi-circular area in the pool from one long side which reduces the volume in an really inconvenient way.
A good 18 months ago we emptied the pool in order to replace the leaking roof.
We haven't filled the pool since or really missed using it. Which, in combination with the fact that a tiny crack has appeared around the entire semi circle, and our need to reduce our fuel bills, means we want to decommission the pool and turn the lovely, large room into a games room for the kids for the few years remaining before they go to university.
We might want to use the pool in that room at some point in the future, so if there is an option to decommission the pool temporarily rather than permanently, without spending a ton more money, then that's our preferred option.
So we want to put a new floor in the room.
What could we do to achieve this? Avoiding spending a whole bunch of money.
Thanks

Hello,

This may not be that difficult of problem, you have a few options, but saving money may narrow your choices.

We might want to use the pool in that room at some point in the future, so if there is an option to decommission the pool temporarily rather than permanently, without spending a ton more money, then that's our preferred option.


I would suggest have a deck builder for hire examine your pool situation, and build a deck above your pool with appropriate support so that it does not collapse. Being a wood deck, you have the option to take it apart at a future date so you may re-use your pool.

I hope this helps
