    Water Seeping through defined line in Gunite shell

    We are in the process of having our pool built and there is a line in the gunite where water has continuously seeped through. I wouldn't worry if the water was just coming through in random spot since I read in other post it is normal for water to seep through gunite but the defined line in which the water is seeping is what bothers me. I will attach a picture so you can see the line. The gunite was poured almost 4 weeks ago and this spot has not been dry since. The white streaks in the picture are calcium deposits from the water leaching through. Is this a problem with the gunite in that area of the shell or normal? Thanks in advance.

    What is your PB saying and can you have the gunite company that did the work come out and look at it?
