I'm hoping someone can help me determine if my pool was installed too low and what i can do to make the deck drain.
my yard slopes up from the house to the fence about 8" in about 30 feet. The pool was backfilled about 2 weeks ago, thats when i noticed something didn't look right to me. 3 walls (the back wall by fence and each short side) appear to be very low. I asked the installer why they were so low he said it has to be that way because he cant go above the concrete path at the back of the house. So now i have 3 sides of my pool anywhere from 5 to 8 inches below grade and the forth side about 4 inches below which seems to be good after the deck is installed.
My question is was this pool put in correct or should it have gone in so 3 sides after the deck is in will be flush or slightly higher than the ground and maybe a small slope on the front side. It seems this way all sides would drain properly. I'm not sure what to do with the deck when it comes time for that. Should i try to get installer to pay for any additional deck work that needs to be done to get them to drain.
Any thoughts, suggestions and comments would help me understand what happened here, if anything, and what could be done now to make this pool safe and work like it should.
