Cover Indoor Pool with Floor?
We recently bought a house that has an indoor pool that we do not want to keep. The pool is in addition on the back of the house. We are getting quotes to fill the pool with gravel and cement. My father--who is a pretty smart and handy person--thinks we shouldn't fill in the pool, but instead cover it with a subfloor and put a floor on top of that. He said to put a trap door down to the pool in case we ever need to check it for water or moisture issues. He also suggested we put a dehumidifier in the pool (which is something we did in our last house in the crawl space). In theory, this sounds like a good idea to me, but I'm not so sure and wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this.
