Fill up a in ground pool

Hi all,
What is the procedure for fill in a in-ground pool.
It is a small one, 10' x 12'. 5' deepest end and 3 feet other end.
There is concrete surrounding the pool.
i want to turn the area into a concrete slab for a deck or something like that.
Thank You

Jack

If you have any kind of water table there drill some large holes in around the bottom of it first. So it cant pop out of the ground later. Then just fill it in and pack down the dirt in it.

What a shame!

If you are putting a deck over the pool, I would put a PVC barrel at the deepest end of the pool with a sump pump hooked up, then fill gravel 3ft around it, then fill the remainder with sand. That way, if you or future owners want to retrieve the pool, they just dig, dig, dig. Don't concrete over it. If you do as above, simply place your deck over top, ensuring your main supports are on undisturbed soil

Check your local codes, I have seen pools where people have filled in their pools with dirt. These types of filled in pools can turn into what some would call quick sand do to improper drainage. Personally I cut the walls at the corners and collapse the walls on to each other (like collapsing a cardboard box)
