    New Gunite Pool in Sacramento, CA

    Hello -
    Thought I would post my pool build since I've been lurking on this site soaking up all the great info and enjoying everyone else's build photos.

    The details:

    500 sq. foot L-shaped pool, 3/5-6 feet. Rest of the pool specs are in my signature.
    Excavation started on July 25th.
    Rebar, Plumbing and Electrical went in on August 1st,2nd and 3rd.
    First inspection was on August 6th - didn't pass because the electrical runs exceeded some specified degree and some leaves had fallen between the rebar and the dig.
    Electrician came out to run an addtional junction box and I fished the leaves out of the dig.
    Passed the pre-gunite inspection on August 9th.
    Gunite on August 14th
    Waterline tile on August 20th.
    Just waiting around for the next phase.









    Does anyone know how many days we have to water the gunite?
    Also, there are holes on the gunite bottom that I can't identify. What are these?


    Thanks!

    nice pool! Those are weeping holes, they allow the ground water to seep into the bowl, it will be pumped out, and holes patched prior to plaster.

    Thanks! Also, thanks for the information re: weeping holes. I suspected they had something to do with groundwater but wanted to make sure.
