looking for some general feasibility advice here. can you put a pool inside an existing slab and either leave the surrounding frost wall and footings in place (abandoned) or repurpose them as a beam to help support the pool deck?
we currently have a garage slab exactly where we want to put a pool. the site slopes and the frost wall levels it and serves as a 20" retaining wall at one end. the slab is 20' w x 24' long, and nicely built with a 6" wide 2 foot frost wall down to footings. the quotes we have received to remove the slab have been $4-6k, mostly because of the cost of getting the frost wall and footings out. then we would have to rebuild a retaining wall of some kind to put a pool in.
if you could install a 16' pool into this slab (extended out the non retaining wall end) it would be exactly where we want a pool.
so is there any way to bypass or repurpose this structure?
