    Here's a good one for ya... bad dig

    We are having a vinyl liner pool installed. The guys came last Monday to dig the hole and complained that the dig sheet they had was not the "usual one" so it took them awhile to dig the hole. They came back Saturday to start assembling the panels and found that they didn't have enough panels... huh? After talking to the panel distributor it turns out that they used the wrong dig sheet and dug the wrong hole. So they DO have enough panels, but the hole needs to be adjusted.

    We had an 8' deep end dug on a lagoon shaped pool. How in the world do they adjust the hole and make this work? Is it possible if the deep end needs to be moved?

    Interesting. Sounds like a problem that they are going to need to figure out how to fix. The good thing is that you don't have to figure it out. They own this one.

    Today they're saying they figured out how to make the existing hole work. Are pool builders always this frustrating???

    yes they are frustrating. dealing with my current build issues. hopefully today when i get home we will have inspections done and can start on concrete decking. It is more stressful then buying a house.
