Question for everyone...I decided to bring it here b/c I'm getting two completely different sides from the Project Manager of my pool build and the contractor who is responsible for the crooked drain and would be required to fix it.
The drain on the bottom of my pool was is crooked. It is about an 1.5 inches from being parallel with the edges of the pool so it is noticeable to the naked eye. I'm sure it is extremely noticeable now, but might be less so once the pebblesheen is shot.
We talked to the project manager and he said they could jack hammer the shotcrete around it and straighten it out with no problem. When we expressed concern about future leaks/issues with that area he stated they would fill in that area w/5000 psi concrete and he said it should be bond with no problems. He assured us we should not be worried about a leak and they do things like this everyday.
The contractor approached us separately and said he would straighten it out if that was what we wanted, but it would potentially compromise the integrity of the shell structure and that we would be seeing a lot of him after the pool was complete to fix issues. He mentioned that it was a big issue b/c we would be changing a "cold joint". I'm not sure exactly what that is...
At this point there have been several snags in the road so I'm really not sure who to believe. Can anyone please help me out here???
Thanks in advance for all advice.
