They just finished digging the hole for my pool, and it's way larger than the drawing. How much will the hole close up when they do the rebar, shotcrete, etc? I have emailed the builder, but being it is the weekend, I don't expect a quick response. I'm especially concerned because the opening is very close to my house. Per the drawing, it should be 5'6" from the house, but when I measure the actual hole, it's more like 4'.
edit: just read through my contact again, and they call out "minimum 6 inch" wall thickness with 8" in stress areas. How thick can they make the shotcrete? Can it be made thick enough to close the distance from 4' to 5'6"?
