The bondbeam is a cubic foot (12x12) walls and floor 6 in. and the radii 8-12 depending on the excavation.

We have demoed many a pool in a day with a JD 310 or 580 Case. Punch holes in the bottom, saw the pool horizontally at 30 in. vertically on both sides of skimmer, corners and swim-outs. Also cut center of radii.

Once prepped, the sides will fold pretty easy.

Bobcat being so nice gave me the update for free but didn't offer to clean up the mess.

This bond beam is almost 2 foot by 2 foot which is way it is so tough. Saw will not make enough cut too help. I used a hand breaker too bust the bottom and if I would have known the pool was like this I would have had a skid breaker form the beginning. Got one coming too finish breaking it up.

Sounds like Shot Crete.

Gunite is sand and dry cement that is pneumatically applied. The water is mixed at the nozzle as the mixture leaves the hose.

Shot Crete is a wet mix that is pumped through a hose. The mix has pea size aggregate in it.

Shot Crete has virtually no rebound since the shaping material can be troweled into the shell floor. Extra thick bondbeams and radii are the result of excess material from shaping the shell.
