I Never Use My Swimming Pool. Is There A Way To Cover It Permanently?

It might not be a good idea to permanently fill in or cover an old swimming pool.

A better solution is to build a temporary deck over your swimming pool so you can remove it if you decide to sell your home later. A pool can add value to your home if you decide to sell. 

Plus, if you fill in a pool and hide it under the dirt, you must disclose that fact when you sell your home. The excavation costs for a new pool in the location where the old one was could be astronomical.

Rosie recommends that you cover your unused pool with a deck made from a composite material. Composite is a wood-polymer lumber made from wood waste mixed with reclaimed plastic from shopping bags and plastic film. Composite wood is substantially more durable than the 100 percent vinyl or plastic wood products on the market. It’s also virtually maintenance-free. 

When you want to use the pool again or sell your home, you can have the deck removed and resurface the pool.
