Looking for some advice on hydrostatic release valves. I live in a area that is relatively dry but in the process of the dig we have encountered one wet area of soil, the pool builder is installing a hydrostatic release valve as a "precaution" though he says its not even remotely necessary. Is this something I need in my pool?
I have read a lot on here about them getting stuck open, leak issues, and issues with water chemistry as a result. If I don't need it and it really contributes to pool water issues that much id rather not have it. Ill post a pic of the soil conditions as soon as possible tomorrow, there are multiple in my build thread. Soil water levels are not an issue in our area, this is from over irrigation on the property above mine. We don't shoot for a few days so I have time to pull it out if needed.
Thanks a ton in advance! This has been bugging me the last two weeks
