Hi everyone -
I know this is kind of backwards but we recently began having our pool built and now that we're almost done, I'm beginning to worry about some of the steps our builder took. We did our research before we hired them but since we've never had a pool built before, we have no way of knowing what's 'normal' or not. Perhaps all you in the know out there can help me out?
below I've included photos of the first few steps, everything seemed to be normal, except you can see in the 3rd and 4th photo below that we have a sewage line running through where our pool is supposed to go. You'll also notice in the 5th photo they applied the gunite with the pipe still through the middle of the pool. Has anyone else seen this done and is there any know problems/issues with this method of later going back and patching the gunite where the pipe was?
1. here's our backyard before with the sprayed outline of the pool...
2. here's the dig (May 26)
3. here's some of the framing
4. here's the plumbing and rebar day
5. gunite! (May 30)
