Remove a pool

Te Whakawātea puna wai kaukau

Check if you need a consent to remove a pool

You do not need a building consent to remove or demolish a swimming or spa pool.

Our tip

If you want to remove your in-ground swimming pool, make sure that the backfill is properly compacted.
 
If you want to keep the pool and backfill it, punch a hole in the base before compaction to allow water to drain.

​Apply to remove the pool from our register

Let us know that you will be demolishing your pool.

We can then take your pool off of our swimming pool register and suspend the inspections.

Our tip

Removing or demolishing a swimming or spa pool is free of charge.
