We recently purchased a house with an old and odd indoor pool. For a number of reasons we decided to renovate with safety being a huge factor. We hired a contractor who promised to get things done quickly and had a great looking plan.
Fast forward to today. We have a number of issues but the largest being that the contractor did not run a drain line out of of the new automatic cover box. The local cover installer indicated that we needed something (the contractor was going to have it just drain down into the dirt below the foundation it seems. I am thinking that a pump of some kind is going to be necessary as we are too far into the project to install a proper drain. My hope is to have the water pumped to the drain around the pool coping which should allow it to escape. We unfortunately don't have an electrical line running to the cover box, but I think I can run one from an existing outlet without too much tile issues.
Any thoughts folks have would be much appreciated as I have essentially had to take over this project.
