I've been lurking around here for the past few months learning so much. There are a few things I'm running into that I haven't seen on the boards before so I would appreciate any insight. TIA!
#1 When they dug out the deep end, they did the hard bottom and put down the liner all in one day. Shouldn't they have waited for the hard bottom to dry or cure? We came home from work and all this was just done in a day.
#2 My pool is vinyl over poured concrete. There are two poured concrete side entrance steps (one in the shallow, one in the deep) and both are identical in dimensions. My problem that I am seeing is that the first step on both is completely uncovered by water. That doesn't seem right to me. Is this a mistake on the builder's part? You would have to fill the pool to the very top for the first step to be covered. Also, the liner has a big bubble at the corner of each of the first steps. Is this fixable? Unfortunately, due to the long Memorial Day weekend, we have to wait for answers from our builder. One of the problems I have encountered is definitely communication with this builder (due to our work schedules and the pb just being too big and busy-- more so than we anticipated when we picked them.)
#3 The pool is now filled with dark green water. This is now day 2. It will be this way until the electrician comes to get the filter going. When that happens is anybody's guess. I wrongly assumed the electrician would be here on Friday. I have to get a hold of the builder on Tuesday. How long can the water just sit there? Is this common/ok for there to be a delay b/w the pool being filled and the filter being turned on?
