I've been lurking for a just a short while, trying to absorb some of the knowledge here. We started our pool 16 days ago. Our PB seemed to be good at moving the process right along, we have gunite, tile and coping started Tuesday and they are finishing it today, electrical is done, and gas is today.
My problem is with the spa. It is all wrong, and I am so upset about it. It is supposed to be an oval shape, but instead it is a wonky almond shape, where one end comes to almost a point. It isn't symmetrical, and it is quite narrow and does not provide much legroom. With the exception of the center position, everyone else will be playing footsie in the spa. Which is fine if it is just my husband and myself, however we enjoy having people over, and that is just plain uncomfortable. The spa was supposed to fit 7 people (we are a family of 6). While there may be enough bench seating for 7, there is not enough legroom for that many.
My question is, what recourse do I have? The construction manager is coming out today to look at it. Is it even possible to remove most of the spa at this point and redo the gunite? I don't want to compromise the structural integrity of it, but I seriously hate it. If they can't fix it, what sort of compensation should I be asking for?
The pool is a 16.5x34 gunite free form, with small tanning ledge, attached spa that spills over into the deep end. I will attempt to get an aerial picture of it today.
