We are finally starting our new pool and as many know the number of choices and differing advice is staggering.
Our pool will have a shotcrete shell and I have been told by one builder that he recommends a shotcrete inspection w/ cores while others have said it is unnecessary. The cost quoted to me is $475ish. So the questions:
1. Do the experts out there recommend a shotcrete inspection w/ cores?
2. If so does $500 sound about right for costs?
3. Where would I go to find an inspector?
4. Would the fact that the Nozzleman is ACI certified and/or the shotcrete came premixed from a batch plant and certified by a weighmaster change your decision (or the lack of the two for that matter)?
Any other advice before I sign tomorrow?
