    New Pool Build Leander, TX(Austin) - Gunite Day

    Well gunite day has arrived. The crew showed up this morning shortly before 7 and had all the prep done and had started shooting gunite about 7:35. My super had the plumbers come out on Wed and they swapped the DE filter with a 520 cartridge filter and added a second pump for the bubblers...

    New Pool Build Leander, TX(Austin) - Gunite Day

    I spoke to my super and took a pic of the manual that states their should be a check valve between the heater and chlorinator/SWG and said he sent that info to the plumbers. Sounds like they have been doing it wrong for everyone. All I know is Im going to make them do mine right.

    Yes, I plan to have tell them to put a check valve between the heater and Tab dispenser/SWG when they replumb it. The filter is a DE filter not a cartridge filter. It was suppose to be a cartridge filter but the supplier gave them the wrong one.

    New Pool Build Leander, TX(Austin) - Gunite Day

    The plumbers came yesterday and plumbed the equipment pad. They are going to have to come make some changes. Super also said he wants to shoot gunite on Monday even though I am gone and he said he would come spray it with water 2 times a day. I'm still hoping to get him to wait till I am back as...

The equipment pad was poured over the weekend and this week the plumbers are suppose to come and finish the pad install. I asked the PB to hold off on Gunite till...

    Light Location - Would you make PB change it

    Forgot to update but builder said they will have the plumbers move the lights and add another return at the far end of the pool and loop the returns in the pool while they are at it.

    Light Location - Would you make PB change it

    I'll ask if there is a reason its higher on the deep end tomorrow. I'm willing to bet the plumber just didnt want to dig the wall out some to make the electrical pipes fit down low. Its hard to tell from the pic but its basically laying on the rock on the tanning ledge and to lower it they would...

    Light Location - Would you make PB change it

    The plumbers put the pipes in for the lights in the pool today and the one on the deep end is atleast 15 inches higher than the one on the shallow end. It looks to me like it will be about 13 inches below the surface of the water. I'm feeling like I should make them lower the deep end one to...
