    Gunite mistake on shelf/ledge depth - what are my remedies?

    Thanks for everyone who gave their input and advice. Very much appreciated. The pool company is offering some money off the pool in addition to the one inch chip out. What do you think would be a fair amount? It will not be at the right depth but I think I will be okay with it.

    I believe he meant that it was the first time they had screwed up a tanning ledge depth on his watch.

    Thank you for all your advice!!! I do have some pictures. I wish I had thought to measure the rebar. Should I be concerned about jackhammering causing structural instability in the pool? Thanks again! Suzanne
