    Waterproofing using FRP

    Fiberglass reinforced paneling? If so I'm not sure why you would. Seems likely to fail, liquid waterproofer is super easy to apply and they have it at every lowes or home depot in the tile section

    Finished the beach entry

    Been filled a few days, so far the kids are loving the beach. We will see if the issues with them people talk about happen eventually, no bird issues so far.

    Rebar size shotcrete pool

    I wouldn't be, I ran all #3 in mine, just maybe you didn't get water on that thing fast enough to catch the hairline cracking, structurally you should be good tho

    Coping/Concrete problem

    I would have them just parge the whole face of the coping so it looks consistent, wouldn't be worried about structural issues as that is super common to happen on concrete forms. In fact it's proof your concrete didn't have excessive water added to it

    Beach entry question

    My wife is adamant we are doing a beach entry, I plan on doing just poured concrete decking and bringing it down into the water a little bit at the beach entrance. Hoping don't have too much water loss but I'm not sure what else would work, a drain may but it would have to be quite wide I'd think

    Beach entry question

    I want to build a pool 22 ft diameter but with a 12 ft diameter beach entry connected to it kind of like a ven diagram. But if I make one side where they meet closer to the center of the large circle would it be able to hold a Whirlpool? Or would all your energy be sucked out into the beach...
