    Thank you, I’ve been drowning it daily and got lucky with the 1+ inch of rain the day after. At this point I was thinking of having it excavated it 2’ and fill with stone before decking goes in. Does 2’ sound like a good depth?

    I will mention that for sure, when I checked references on their pools I didn’t get any construction complaints (some other complaints yes, but not on how construction is holding up) This is how they do them all. It seems like this could be an issue based on what your saying. Is this not the...

    Thanks all, the PB and I discussed. The reason they didn’t do the lift compacting is there are 20+ pvc runs due to the infloor cleaning system and all of the vibrations a few feet above could affect it. Since it’s a concrete walled pool they only over excavate approx 2ft, up to 3ft in some...

    thanks guys, I am not too hopeful as it is not in the contract and I am sure they would overcharge me to do like you guys state at this point since I am sure they do not want to do it and would only cave if I insist (but make me pay/overpay for it) Since yesterday I've reached out to a few guys...

    Thank you for the insight, they definitely did not do the lift compact. That is disappointing. While he has his own operation he does all of the PB's decking so I am sure he won't give me his honest opinion. I am meeting him next week and will discuss this. Any advice on steps I can take now...

    thank you for the insight, (they did not do the lift compacting for sure). I'll be going back to my contract to review warranties, etc. on this. While the concrete company is their own they do pretty much of the PB's pools. Any advice on steps that can be taken at this stage to minimize risk...

    Just the pool area, a bit extended though so I can have rock/landscaping on the perimeter of the decking.

    I do not think they did, not sure what "in lifts mean". With it being the end of the season in NJ the decking may not be poured until spring. I am meeting with the concrete guy next week to discuss.

    They are calling for 1" or more of rain today/tonight, couldn't be better timing! I also plan on watering daily. When you say compact it, I wasn't here the whole time but I did not see a compactor type machine but I did see him driving over it all around the perimeter.
