Installing a pool in your backyard is a great way to have some fun during the summer. However, if your yard has trees in it, there’s a good chance that roots could seriously impact the installation of your pool. Root removal is often a necessary evil in these instances.
Tree Roots Can Interfere With Initial Placement
When your pool installer starts digging, the last thing they’re going to want to see are tree roots. These problem items can make it really difficult to place your pool.
They’ll force the installation expert to stop, chop out the roots, remove them, and continue with the process. Even with power tools, this is annoying and time-consuming.
Growing Roots Can Impact Your Pool Later
Even if roots aren’t where your pool will be installed, growing roots can still be a major problem. They can push up against your pool exterior and cause damage. This minor damage can create leaks in your pool, expand damaged areas, and lead to bacterial infections that can endanger you and your children.
When You Should Get The Roots Removed
The best time to get your tree roots removed is right away. When you and your pool installation expert have decided on the location of the pool in your yard, call a tree professional to identify your tree roots and remove them.
Then they can install tree root barriers near around where your pool will be built to direct the roots away in a safe manner that is healthy to your trees.
