ok, so they started the remodel today and while I had asked for them to drain the pool into our sewer lines, they said that was not possible because it would flood our house, I get that and am glad they didn't go that route. However, I was clear about my concerns about it draining into the streets and they assured me it was okay. So, fastforward to this morning ( they started at dark thirty) when it's draining, and the city comes by telling me it's against ordinance. ARGH!!! Pool is 75 percent drained but I made them stop due to ******* off the city ( and probably neighbors). Now to be fair, I had let the ppm get to 1, but still. Not a good way to start. of course I called the super right away and they have stopped..said someone else would be coming out later to finish. I sure hope the rest of the job doesn't go like this. A very unhappy start. Thanks for letting me vent.
