    Need education about shotcrete stage

    Hi,

    Just found this site and I am thinking of starting a thread about my build but i need a little advice relatively quickly so i can do something if i need to. I am in the shotcrete stage (curing) , have an infloor cleaning system (blue square) and have been watering a few times a day to help cure the stuff. I started to have water collect at the deep end (no problem) but i also discovered a low area in the middle of the pool collecting water (1-2 inches).

    The pool is 12x60 and depth of 4'2" to 7'...relatively flat all the way untill you get to the deep end. They are going to resize the stairs from the sun shelf in the next day or so with bagged concrete and pour the equipment pad... so my question is....Do I worry about the low area? Mostly because of the infloor cleaner.. will this be a problem? The PB didn't seem to concerned said the plaster will self level it mostly.

    I know there are imperfections in most things...is this something to get bent out of shape about and push them to fix/fill when doing the stairs?

    Thanks

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the water standing there was it was a good thing! That will help any dirt/stuff get there to the pop ups. I would not worry with it.

    ok I was just worried.... as everything goes better with gravity the idea of the infloor is push stuff down to the main drain (or to skimmers). I was worried that having a deep spot would create an area where things would get stuck and not "flow" down to the main drain...
