Hello to all,
Part of a final punch list, was for the PB to remove dirt, debris and other, then properly grade.
When we had a medium rain regarding how hard it came down last Friday, the water was running from behind the pool wall down a 5-7" grade difference and then running over and onto the decking pavers and into the closest drain. It also left dirtn debris & mud stains on travertine pavers. If the rain was real hard and more than a 1" rain, it would be running into the pool most likely.
Although this area is not landscaped yet, nothing stops water unimpeded going from a high pt to a lower pt. The PB has not responded to this issue yet. However, he did recognize the same issue was going to happen at the spa, so when the decking guys were installing the travertine pavers, they did a 6" step-up. Therefore, he recognized the issue there, but I think he thought when the dirt was removed from the back wall, it would be resolved. They removed the dirt and I think to the near original grade or 1-2" off, but it still exists as a grade issue. It is just how the grade exists, prior to excavation.
So, no matter what the grade is, it is his issue to resolve, correct? I am willing to work towards any amicable solution, but wanted to get everyone's opinion since I know 1000's of you have "already been there and done that".
Lastly, this board has been so helpful, I am going to sign-up and join right after I post...what a great site.
