What’s The Cost of Filling In A Swimming Pool


Have you ever wondered what it would cost to fill in an old swimming pool?

T & D Earthworks often get requests from home owners throughout the Hunter region requesting a quote to remove their old swimming pool and fill it in.

There are several reasons why people want to get rid of their pool. Some people get tired of wasting their weekends cleaning a pool that nobody uses anymore, but the most common complaint we hear from home owners is that they want to save money on general pool running costs such as electricity usage, chemicals and water usage.

Do you have a swimming pool in your backyard that is no longer used and is costing you money on running costs and water usage fees – read on to find out how we can remove your swimming pool.

What’s involved with removing and filling in an old fibreglass pool?

Firstly you will need a licensed excavator driver and tipper to get the job done. T & D Earthworks can assist home owners who are located in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, Maitland, Cessnock, Singleton, Muswellbrook and the surrounding Hunter region.

What We Do

  • Pool is drained and completely emptied before starting the removal process.
  • Excavator removes the old fibreglass pool shell and rips it up so that the pool shell can be easily disposed of. When removing a pool there is no need for a crane.
  • Fibreglass pool shell waste is transported and disposed of at the local Council waste management centre.
  • Soil is delivered to site and the hole is filled and compacted.

The average cost for T & D Earthworks to remove an old fibreglass pool, dispose of the pool at the local council tip, deliver soil to site and fill in the hole is generally around the $5,000 – $6,000 markThis price can vary depending on a range of factors such as site conditions & accessibility, the size of the pool and the level of site preparation work you require after the pool has been removed.

When the job is complete you will end up with a large flat area that you can utilise for gardens or lawn.
