    Gunite Question

    Gunite was shot 10/15.
    PB said to water once day for a week.
    I haven't noticed any cracks, but I did notice the below. Is this a problem or just something they take care of during plaster?

    Thanks for any and all advice!

    What's the problem you see? I see concrete that isn't cured fully but has plenty of moisture for the hydration process.

    Good! Thats what I was hoping to hear!

    I circled the "hole". It's like a chunk is missing from the wall, not too deep, about a finger tip.
    I wasn't nervous until I started laying in bed wondering why most PB's have said water 3-5 times a day and mine said only once a day........

    And, I didn't know how easy it was to post pics on this site, I'll try and post more of start to finish since I know what a big help it was to me, and how you "kids" love pics!

    Yeah, they'll just pack it full of plaster. No big deal.

    Sorry I can't help with your question bumdaddy, but I do like your waterline tile selection.

    Thanks Lizzy!

    The whole looks deeper today, about 3/4 of an inch.

    I'm still watering, it's been about 8 days now, how long should I continue to water?

    Thanks,

    Also like the tile!

    I always thought the coping came before the tile... no? Otherwise how do you get a consistent gap between tile and coping? And make sure the coping is not resting on a piece of tile?
