I'm hoping some of you can help with this concern.
As part of my pool build, we had the PB include a 32 inch scupper as a water feature. PB told us it would be like a waterfall, with water cascading out of the scupper into the pool 12 inches below.
The scupper is basically a rectangular hole in the raised beam, with the travertine surrounding it. Water fills the cavity and then rolls out.
The problem is, the flow is not strong enough, so most of it weeps off the wall rather than cascading down.
PB is trying to blame this on the pump, but the flow is not even and strong even when the pump is at full speed. He is also saying that the returns should be closed off when the scupper is running.
Has anyone else experienced this? Shouldn't scuppers have a pleasing flow to them?
Trying to figure out how to get this corrected. The PB contract simply says 7ft raised bean with 32" scupper.
