Removed Pool - Parts Reuse Ideas

Posted by gwrace (My Page) on

We've maintained a 33 foot above ground pool for the last 12 years and this year decided to take it down. We have recycled as much of the old pool as possible but are left with a large aluminum deck and the associated fencing and posts. Since I'm an avid gardener we plan to return the pool area to good top soil and a compost mix. (back to eden) The deck stands about 5 feet in the air on long legs that actually rested on the top rail of the pool. I already have a green house with a fenced in garden area. I was just trying to figure out if the deck could be reused for anything practical. It wasn't cheap to buy. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Try the garden junk forum. I am not calling your deck "junk", but the folks there might have some ideas for you.

You should post a good picture of it since words don't convey very well what it is you're dealing with.

Or advertise it for sale on craigslist. I swear some folks spend their entire life just cruising craigslist sales for bargains!

call your local scrapyard to see what aluminum is getting right now. There's a reason CNC shops keep every scrap and sliver.
