Rebar is in, and my pool is ready for gunite! They have been fast so far, and it looks like we could be filling up our pool in six weeks!
That said, we just hit a major (in my view) design oversight. There is a wall along teh length of my pool, and the contract with the builder included a 42" wall, where in reality it needed to be about 45". No big deal to get done afterwards, other than the fact that 9 inches over top of the 18" wide of vault for the automatic cover.
If I were to get the whole wall pulled back, then instead of having a 3.5" saftey grip at the bottom of the wall, it would be nearly 12" and the sheer decents going into the pool wouldn't look right.
So, my though, is there a way I can extend the wall across the automatic cover vault in a way that would be accessible? Perhaps an accessible panel? Would I also need to use the same sort of stainless steel brackets for the coping so it is removable?
The first picture shows the actual layout of the pool, the second shows the pool in the overall layout of our yard.
