Hi Donna

A lot will depend on access to the pool with a "Bobcat". We use a small "Bobcat" 32 inch wide.

Price would depend on what type of pool is it (Concrete or Vinyl) Vinyl pool is cheaper to fill in.

We recommend using Sand as fill material but you can have any fill material of your choice.

Thank you

Hi Donna

Head to your local city hall, they will provide you with the information about the demo permit you will require to remove and infill the swimming pool. Possibly the required infill based on the area, existing soil and site grades will also be accessable from the city.

If there are any trees in the yard you will be required to protect them and depending on the type of pool, metal, poly or concrete, with or without concrete decks and the location of the equiptment (hopefully not in the house or garage but separate from the building)... the price of the demo will vary.
