    Quick question about construction - PB ran out of gravel

    Hi everyone

    Our PB started our dig on thursday, pouring gravel all over the bottom of the hole.

    They ran out of gravel 3/4 of the way in. I called the office to ask about when they would deliver extra and was told that the gravel is only used to help manage the water/mud during the dig and that is not really necessary to cover the whole hole bottom.

    Does this ring a bell? Will not having gravel under the whole gunite shell will be a problem?


    In construction (well, it is really permitted and we are waiting on PB to start digging, long story): 86 LF free form gunite, sundeck bubbler, jets on swimout. Hayward automation, pump (2-speed) and 40K gallon SWS
    In design: 20' ODK not idea what is going to look like yet
