Hey guys I just started build a 16x32 in-ground vinyl liner pool about 2 weeks ago and I wanted to get some advise or gain some knowledge if I can. I had an excavator clear and level a spot and once done he started digging first the shallow depth and over dig all looked good. Then when he dug the hopper we ran into sandstone but nothing to bad but when it breaks up sometimes more comes up than needs be and I think he inadvertently got in to the wall shelf a little. I just got off the phone with my Mason that is doing the bottom and he didn't seem worried about that part but I am a little concerned with the steel walls in a few places hanging in the air in a few places. I know you suppose to dig, measure, dig, measure but I think he did a little to much dig and not enough measure.
I should be getting my kit this week or first of next week so I think until I get the walls installed things might become a little clearer. Excavator did not want me to buy kit until we dug and knew there would be no issues with hitting solid rock.
So here are just a few questions:
- If edge of shelf where wall sits is low or over dug how would this be fixed.
- How much can the mortar & sand base fill in before needing anything else done and if something else what.
I will add photos later, we are getting rain right now so i have a muddy pond at the moment
