    Is this an Act of God or my issue?

    Well, the saga of stone and pool builder gets worse.

    We had 3" of rain and an area by the house [10x 5] that filled up w water and split all over the travertine POUROUS tile also brought a lot of black gumbo staining soil. After hitting it w a strong stream of water from the hose nozzle, the travertine has taken on a lot of dark stains from the soil. Areas not near this place were not impacted.

    The pool builders put a drain in this area, but it was never trimmed-out. The 3" OD PVC is still sticking a foot above the ground still and was not leveled like the other 4 drains that are in the actual travertine.

    If I can do something to fix this, I am open for all ideas. If not, I need to know are they liable for fixing these stained areas? They still need to do the pebble sheen and I still owe them some cash.

    I am ready to move into an apartment and the wife and daughters can live in this place.

    That is a rough situation. A good builder will make that right, one way or another. Pressure washing might take care of it.

    It seems odd to me since you are in Texas how my pb could move back and forth from Cali so quickly. Lol
    I feel your pain.

    I have not had the PB and his travertine/deck stone installer out yet, but I will bc of an over billing issue. I was hit of for an extra 207 sq ft so I am going to bring up this issue and then some...
