    Bonita Springs Pool Build - Absentee Owner

    I had asked some questions a few months ago and got some useful information. Brent in Jacksonville was helpful in talking to me on the phone which added some very useful information in the completion of the items for our pool.

    We will be down in about a week for a much needed vacation for 8 days and then will not return until Thanksgiving.

    All work on the pool is being done with the many recommendations given for this pool builder.

    I will include pictures that our weekly valet service takes with his cell phone. Not the best but all I have.

    There is either too much sand surrounding the pool or the pool was shot to low. When graded, water should run away from the pool edge.

    A drain will be needed between the house and the pool.

    I would also heartily recommend some gutters on that back roofline to minimize the rain runoff into the pool area. The old pool guys (builders) I talk to say that erosion around the pool due to runoff is their long term main problem that causes major structural issues with the pools they build.

    In the contract is provision for gutters at the rear of the house for drainage. All decking will be sloped away from the house.

    The sand was piled up high because of the daily rains.

    Between the house and pool should be a valley with the drain. You don't want any splash out or rain running back in the pool. It would bring in dirt.

    If you notice the picture of the screened lanai and the pool on the left, the drain will be put at the end of the existing concrete and screen (present concrete slopes away from the house). The screen will be removed and pavers (1") will be put on top of the concrete to match the pavers around the pool and then everything will be covered with a new lanai.

    My homewatch only takes pictures after something is done, so that is why the delay in posting pictures. The builder was told we would not be down and to take their time and "do a good job"..
