    My New pool and my worries! Construction Thailand

    So I have moved from Florida to Thailand and decided i wanted a pool........I am not much of a writer so this will be mostly photos. To make a long story short. Yesterday we added 36,000litres of water. 15 hours later the pool lost 6000 liters. I am waiting to talk more with the contractor but still want input? I believe there is a broken pipe as i dropped some red soda syrup in front of the jet and it sucked it in....OK so worse case they do what? Here are some build pics...

    Yeah, thanks for sharing! Interesting to see how many ways there are to 'skin a cat'.

    I was getting worried when I saw the 4" bricks going up, and then I realised there were using it as a concrete form! Yep -- built like a bunker.

    I think they used 7 to 8 concrete trucks for the walls and deck. Of coure 100s of bags for other stuff. This all the more reason i worry. Thanks for the input

    The pool with the deck walls and salt water chlorinator is a little under 20k usd. The water extra 70usd. The diver was supposed to be here at 11am now 43minutes late.

    Awesome pool of course. Love it! I would check the plumbing first. That is alot of loss for a pool. Especially overnight.
