Hello all. I need sympathy because we are in week 18 of a "6-8 week" in-ground build. We've had some setbacks, like the pool isn't square, therefore the patio isn't straight, the steps are uneven and the sun shelf isn't level. The wrong lights and pump were installed, but we were very happy yesterday morning because it was finally plaster day! Our excitement was short lived. After mixing and applying 80 out of 88 bags of material, the installers realized they had 2 different colors and that the 80 bags they put down were labeled incorrectly and were the wrong color. The 8 bags they had left were labeled correctly and were indeed the color we chose. They finished the job and now we have a pool that has 2 colors. The PB said it will have to be chipped out and redone which means redoing the step tile etc. etc. We waited 2 weeks for the plastering crew to come down from Miami so who knows how long we'll have to wait this time. PB says he's not going to chip out the plaster until he gets news from manufacturer that they will pay for the removal and replastering. In the meantime, we're filling the pool and hope to take a swim or two while they figure it out!
(I will post pictures soon, my pictures "exceed my quota" so I have to figure that out.)
