    I have no real idea but the pool guys who close my pool remove it for the winter to put the winter cover on as part of their 300 closing service and its usually the quickest thing they do.

    If it has a steel base, the scrap value would probably be worth what it would cost to take it off the base.

    Are you talking about cutting the bolts out of the concrete or just unbolting it and hauling it off? I remove mine every fall and store it inside. Four bolts and 10 minutes tops.

    Even if you are talking about permanently removing the diving board (lets say for insurance reasons). It's just a matter of removing the board and base and then for the bolts in the ground they can be cut and ground flush with the concrete with a angle grinder.

    If you are just talking about removing the old board to replace it with a new one. Its just chopping it up small enough so it can fit into garbage bags.

    Hey thanks. Yea total removal,(insurance ) studs and all. Never thought about the metal value. So around$100 is fair for both of us?

    I'd try posting on Craig's list in the free section, somebody might be willing to do it for the price of removing it. That's how I got my entire pool.
