    New build gunite error

    Ours was the same way, it was only 7" deep/ It took the PB an extra week to correct it. 5 days of cutoff saws and impact hammers, they cut 8" x 8" pattern then chiseled it out then floated a layer of concrete to smooth out the floor.

    Deck finally poured

    Definitely not. Mine had a few spots where the pump hose knocked off a section of the form when they were having issues. After they pulled the forms the next day, they went around the whole pool with a grinder to remove the lines created by the forms. Do you know if they used the wire clips to...

    Plaster finish question

    They applied the plaster today (KrystalKrete aquamarine), acid washed and then power washed the pool. We've started filling it, and noticed where the plaster has dried out it looks like they failed to pressure wash certain areas, should we be concerned?

The decking was perfect, it's a pity we are covering...

    Actual Dimensions of non rectangular pools

    We found that the perimeter measurement the best bet. When we were getting pricing, free form pools were a lot smaller than a true rectangle pool of the same size.

    Plaster finish question

    The gunite crew shot 5 extra inches on the tanning ledge. Instead of having 8-9" of water with a 12" depth, I have 7" without plaster. The PB's crew was out today, after 5 hours and 2 cutoff saws they fixed a 1'x 8' section. After that, it's the benches and the stairs, adjusting to the...

    Deck Jets

    I'm sure they are making up the difference in the price of the IntelliCenter and the additional concrete work we are having done.
