Well, the pool construction is almost done. They started yesterday about 11:30ish and there were 3 of them. Bt 4:30 it was down to 2. The guy in charge left the 2 others to finish the job. Needless to say the pool wall gave them a bit of trouble so it took them a long time. It was a hair off and the holes weren't lining up so they can put the screws in. Ok so what ever. Then I noticed that when they were leveling and smoothing out the pool that they used some of the dirt that they cleared out along with some of the sand they brought in and sorta mixed in. I don't think this is good is it? I asked about spraying for the nut grass and they told me that it was already mixed in the sand. Kinda makes me wonder if that isn't defeating the purpose if they just used dirt from my yard to add to leveling out the inside of the pool.
Also, I didn't expect them to have to dig as far down as they did. Almost 2 feet on one side. So now the pool is all nice and flat on the back side and then on the front I have this big ole 2 foot drop off! How the heck will I ever fix that! Since I don't want to back fill the dirt against the pool wall. That will make the wall real short on that side and I have 2 little kids that would be able to climb in then!
The guys finally got done putting in the wall and liner. I started the water, was told to put 12 inches in it and shut the hose and shop vac off and they would be back in the morning. Well this morning came and went, no phone call, nothing. I finally called at 1 pm and was told that the guy in charge had to go to Columbia to get the pump and ladder. WTHeck, shouldn't they already have all this??? They did bring the wrong ladder to begin with (one for a deck) Since we won't be doing a deck until the little ones are older.
To make it worse one guy asked if he could leave the "bobcat" here. I said sure. But NOT IN MY FRONT YARD ON MY GRASS! I figured he would have loaded it on the trailer and let it sit on the side of the road in front of the house. So now I have a lovely spot where he left this thing and it dug up the grass pretty good and needless to say hubby was livid when he saw it this morning!
So I am told they would be back in the morning to finish it. I am almost kinda regretting this now!
Also I noticed a bit ago a few wrinkles in the bottom of the pool. How are these removed? There is only about a foot of water in it. I want them out before its completely full. Hehehe until its done I am not coming off any money!
Thanks for letting me rant! :P
