We have been reading this site for months watching builds and soaking in the advice and opinions before finally starting our own build. I do have a question and would appreciate any opinions or advice offered.
The pool depth is to be 3.5' in the shallow end and 5.5' in the deep end. In the shallow end, it is only 41 inches from floor to top of the bond beam.
Assuming the plaster (quartzscapes) will raise the floor level also, the 41" bond beam height would not appear to allow for a 42" water level. I believe the bond beam should have been 45" high, correct?
When I brought this to PB's attention, he said he would "raise the tiles"to get "the water level I want".
It isn't just the level I want, it is the water level in the contract.
Wouldn't this be measured by the PB instead of me being the one to notice?
The coping will be cantilever concrete.
Does "raising the tiles" sound like a reasonable solution?
I can't picture how that would work.
If not reasonable, how would you approach it?
I do like my PB, and he has a great reputation and was referrrd to me by a friend.
Any advice or opinion would be much appreciated.
Thank you much!
