Pools are by far one of the best summertime activities and they bring families together for barbecues and more. But, if you plan to move, what do you do about your above ground pool? You take it with you of course! Below, we will provide you with the steps to move your above ground pool safely to your new location.
- Empty All That Water
Since it is likely that your pool is filled with water, it is time to take the time to empty the entire pool. Make sure you are prepared for the draining and that you do not flood your neighbor’s yard. Often, above ground pools will have a plug or some type of special drain to allow you to safely remove the water.
Once the water has been removed from the pool, carefully climb into the pool and hose off the liner to remove any buildup of dirt, pollen, and debris.
- Determine Where the Pool Will Go and Prepare the Site
Now, you need to determine where the pool will go at your new location and you need to prepare the site for the arrival of the pool. This part is going to take some time, so you must plan in advance before you bring the pool along with you.
When it comes to preparing the site for the pool, you should level the ground where the pool will go and make sure that all rocks and any sharp objects are removed from the ground as they may rip the liner and lead to leaking.
