    New Construction

    Good evening, new to the site and new to being a pool owner. Well they just started the dig last Friday and everything seems to be going welll with the exception of the weather. Its rained some thoughout the entire weekend and i'm concerned the rain is going to affect the quality of work. Now all they've done is dig the hole and put down some gravel so far and the PB is using a pump to remove any water that collects but its a mess in the back the ground is saturated and is all mud. their suppose to install steel walls tomorrow is it okay to do that even though the ground isnt dry yet? I don't want quality to be sacrificed. I assume the PB knows best but i'm rather cynical of all people but i also know that time is money. Does anyone have any experience with building steel walls on wet ground?

    Thanks in advance.
