Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question but since pavers are so common around pools, I think people here might have some good advice.
I recently had another paver patio put in on the far side of our pool pavers to match it. Its about 300sq ft, round, with a firepit built in.
I thought the guy did a decent job, but now when it rains I see he didn't pitch the patio at all. Its too level. And he used 3" to 4" cement underneath instead of crushed stone so there is no drainage.
So basically in a hard rain, I get about 4 inches of water sitting on top of the pavers that I need to sweep off into the grass next to it. And its a P.I.T.A cause it mostly just flows back to the center so it takes about 30 minutes to sweep it out of there.
Is there a quick and easy way to create drainage without ruining the look of the patio?
I need to do this before winter so the water doesnt get on there and freeze, screwing it all up
