Hi all, we have 2 steps left in our build, cool deck application and the installation of the plaster.
I am taking off the day from work on plaster day and wanted some input on things to look out for.
Stuff I am curious about:
1. There are 4 holes that were left in the gunite, PB said due to ground water and are a pressure release.
How are these usually filled in? I have read portland cement? How important is is to make sure they scoop out the holes and to what depth should I make sure they clear them?
2. Debris in the pool
Do plaster companies usually do a good job of cleaning out the junk? I do not want any debris under my plaster!
Do they usually bring shop vacs etc and know what they are doing ?
3. Rough spots in gunite, how do they clean up the bounce back gunite and rough spots in the pool?
4. Umbrella sleeves, I have 2 going in, one in the sunshelf, one in the deep end love seat.
Any concerns with these I should know about?
Any other things I should watch for on plaster day?
Thanks much for any input, this is our first pool and really want it completed right. We have had so many delays etc, we are now just wanting it finished.
This forum is wonderful.
Debris and pressure holes. I used a sump to empty the deep end to see what was going on down there prior to plaster, less debris than I thought.

Post concrete, pre cool deck.
