    New Pool Build- Raised Infinity Edge Glass Tile Pool

    Hi Everyone,

    Some people have requested pics of my in progress pool build. The gunite was just recently completed. I do have some concerns about the plumbing being below the gunite floor (see pics) and that the house weep holes were covered (also shown in pics). Would definitely appreciate any thoughts.

    The plumbing can be moved up easily enough. The weep screed issue was due to poor elevations on the excavator's part and the shotcrete crew should have done a better job. That could lead to issues down the road.

    Is this an owner/builder pool?

    Thank you for your thoughts. What issues could the weep screed issue this lead to down the road? I am using a PB and he says that he will have to grind down the concrete so that the weep holes are no longer covered.

    Was it a lot more expensive to raise your pool up? We are thinking about doing this too. We have desert tortoises so it's either a raised pool or a fence.

    We never received bids for a pool that wasn't raised but I know that you will need to pay for extra tile and gunite (and probably more steel rebar too). I think the majority of the extra expense with our raised pool is because it has two infinity edges requiring overflow troughs and extra pool equipment.

    Water getting into the house from rain. Probably not all that likely but why take the chance?
