Swimming Pool Excavation Services

Pool Leveling Machine
Brand New for 2017 Pool Season

I level the ground for your above ground pool installation. I charge half of what it would cost you to rent a skid steer and do it yourself. This post will give you an idea of what professional swimming pool excavation services cost.

Water does not lie! If you install a pool on uneven ground, you and everyone who looks at the pool will know.

Not only do I prepare your land for new pools. I also remove old and unwanted inground and above ground pools.

Swimming Pool Excavation Cost

We charge $180.00 to remove sod and level an area that is within 6 inches of grade. Yards that are out of grade over 6 inches cost an extra $90.00. If your yard is way over 12 inches out of grade, we will quote an hourly rate after visiting site.

If you have huge rocks or ledge in your yard and excavation is not an option, we can build a pad to install your pool on. The average cost of material and labor to build and compact a pad is $800.00 to $1200.00.

Sod Haul Away

If you do not have a spot on your property to put the sod and dirt I remove while leveling your yard, I will haul it away for an extra fee.

Pool Sand &  HG / Stone Dust Delivery Cost

Tons HG / Stone Dust Washed Sand

Pool Base

It is always best to do the final grading with a compactable washed sand. Most yards carry washed mason sand. We use this to get the pool level to 1 inch. We have transits, laser levels, site sticks, rakes, shovels, plate compactors, and all the equipment it takes to build a good level pol base.

Most pool bases are dug, set, leveled and compacted with mason sand for just $350.00. Tell me again what your time and back is worth? 😀
