    Water shotcrete shell while it cures?

    Both our PB and the shotcrete subcontractor told us the same thing. Said it’s not necessary to water. The shotcrete company does pools all over town.

    Thought I’d post some more photos. The shotcrete was finished up the following day with no issue. After that, they removed the forms and back filled. Last week the pool was tiled. This week the plumbing got roughed in and the plumbers should be back tomorrow to finish up. We’re making slow but...
