I have an excavator coming this week to help with my DIY build. Most material I have read has said to over excavate the bottom 2 to 3 inches of the deep end to allow for concrete or whatever bottom material I go with.
The question I have is do I over excavate the shallow end as well? Most instructions I have seen show the shelf and panels on the same grade as the excavation. Does that mean my shallow end will be a little less deep?
As an FYI, I am building a 3-6 to 5-6 steel wall with concrete bottom liner pool.
