How to Uninstall an Inground Swimming Pool Slide

Swimming pool slides are fun for a while, but what happens when the kids grow up and you are ready for a more serene pool area? At that point, it's probably time to let it go, And luckily, removing your pool slide is fairly easy; all you need are some tools and a little time.

Determine what sort of fasteners were used to originally install the slide. Some slides are attached to anchor bolts sunk into the concrete deck. Some slides have their own legs sunk into the concrete deck.

If you have a slide attached to anchor bolts in the concrete, your slide removal will be relatively simple. Using whatever tool fits the particular fastener that your slide uses, remove the fasteners and then remove the slide. You may wish to use a reciprocating saw or a hack saw with blades intended for metal to cut the protruding bolts down to deck level or below. A metal file will be helpful for getting the last bits down low enough. Then fill in the resulting holes with concrete patching material. Alternatively, use a jackhammer or a pry bar and a sledge hammer to remove the concrete section where the slide is installed, and replace the entire section of concrete.
