    He said he has added calcium hypochlorite, muriatic acid, and cyanuric acid, even though my tests have shown no CYA.

    Fresh plaster + dirty water = problem?

    As far as I understand, there are plugs which get inserted into holes in the drain once they are ready to fill. This is to give the groundwater a place to go (into your pool) instead of popping your pool out of the ground. I was more concerned of water, especially dirty water, staining the...

    Fresh plaster + dirty water = problem?

    They just did my WetEdge plaster today. They are coming back to acid wash and fill tomorrow. Meanwhile, dirty groundwater has seeped up into the pool? Is this normal or a problem?

    Gunite skimmer placement

    As my coping is being installed on my pool, I just noticed that the skimmer basket opening/lid has to be cut into the coping because of the way they placed it. The didn't even form a proper skimmer throat, it appears: Shouldn't the skimmer have been pushed back so that a square cover could...

    Exposed rebar after gunite phase

    Just spoke with PB. He intends to do what @d_red1 said. That is, chip out behind and reposition the rebar and then patch. He says what he thinks happened is that the gunite guys sprayed too much behind the rebar, which pushed it out, which, of course, they didn't notice until after they went to...

    Exposed rebar after gunite phase

    @bdavis Are they not obligated to fix it "properly"? Do I have any recourse?

    Exposed rebar after gunite phase

    @bdavis I guess I need to wait and see what he's gonna do. @d_red1 Sounds good - except nobody is here yet. Not sure whether I should blame PB or rebar crew more. Rebar crew apparently did something incorrect, but PB probably should have verified that everything was right.

    Exposed rebar after gunite phase

    Yes, this is serious and I need serious suggestions, please. Before he comes to try and bandaid fix. Here's our conversation via text: Me: "It looks like the rebar guys didn't measure right or something. What can be done about this?" PB: "No worries. It's fine. Gunite is real ugly but strong...

    Exposed rebar after gunite phase

    @Killer95Stang It doesn't appear to be the fault of the gunite crew. The plan is that each of the three planters extend 1 ft into the pool. They do. Adding more concrete over that rebar would make it more than 1 ft. It's more likely the fault of the rebar crew. Either way, I need to know how it...

    Exposed rebar after gunite phase

    Currently in construction, gunite applied yesterday. However, some of the rebar was not positioned correctly. PB insists that it is not a problem and he will fix it. In my opinion, the money I'm paying, this should have never happened in the first place. It looks like the rebar guys maybe...
