Close a swimming pool

It seems a pity to close the pool for a few YEARS. Infants can derive immense benefit from swimming.

If you are intent on closing the pool, then I would suggest draining it and filling it with sand (river sand or building sand). This will not ruin the pool and will be relatively easy to remove down the line. Also you will have no interim maintenance costs for electricity, chemicals, etc.

Have you considered a fence or a pool cover to keep your child away from the pool water?
