    ? for the PB's how would you fix an excavation mistake?

    This is a very random question that popped into my head . If you are excavating a pool and say a wall collapses or it gets dug to wide for instance, how would you build the dirt wall back up? Any pics or instances of this happening?

    I can't speak for other PBs but, what we would do is nail a wire and plastic sheet to the existing form (for the bond beam) and buttress it up and then shoot our crete. Then, after the walls had cured, we'd backfill the void.

    Just make the pool bigger

    My PB drew the pool too wide on my job. He realized it about 20 minutes later. I told him it was too late to move the line. We settled about half way between the two marks

    someone suggested to me that I wait to order the liner in case the walls are dug out to deep or there is a small change in the hole dimensions. This way they can just manufacture your liner to your specs.
