    They did the extra steel at no charge & I think extra shotcrete will be about $200.
    Electrical is on Friday, but the shotcrete guy is a little backed up, so I may have to wait about a week after inspection. Darn!!

    Electrical done & inspection passed - got my final signed off too.
    I just need to find someone who can do my shotcrete NOW. They are all pretty busy right now, so I'm currently looking.

    If you have the flexibility in your own schedule, tell them you can be ready with overnight or early morning (last-minute) notice. That can make a difference to a contractor.

    That's a good idea! I have a guy coming at 5:30 tomorrow morning to do pre-site & hopefully they can fit me in this week.

    Congratulations on your new pool! I live in Gilbert, looking forward to the pool warming up in the next few weeks! Too late for you now, but I would have strongly recommended the PCC2000 in floor cleaning system. Our pool is now 20 years old, and the system still works just as well as the first day! I never brush, skim, or do anything but empty the skimmers! Maybe the best $2000 bucks I've ever spent. Enjoy your new pool this summer! !

    I contemplated in floor cleaning & decided not to do it... hopefully I won't regret it.
    I decided to put the money towards more decking and the salt cell.
    I can't get wait to get this thing done!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your build too.

    I'm getting tired of all the dirt in my backyard already! My house is super dusty now oh well, I'm sure that it will be more than worth it!

    Good luck with your plans & build. Let me know if you need any info on subs - mine have been excellent so far.

    Congrats on the shell shoot!! Just a warning, if you think waiting on the gunite was hard, it's twice as hard waiting for plaster . . . Sooo close, but yet not done. . I'm flying in Friday night for a two week visit with my pool. Water temp is only 71 with the cooler nights, but hey, that's why I have a heater right??
    17' x 30' rectangle pool, two 7' x 7' baja decks, 6' x 8' raised spa. Hayward 2HP VSP for features, filter and returns. 2HP single speed for 9 spa jets. 1HP blower for spa bubbles.

    Ha! I'm sure! I'm trying to prepare myself.
    I bet having a heater is nice! I will have to settle for a solar cover.
    Enjoy!!
