A friend of mine is building an in-ground pool, they are almost at the pebble-tec stage. 3days ago a heavy rain came through. The Gunite shell was initially wet but dried up quickly after that, but then they noticed that several of the area remain with streak lines running down the gunite wall and remains wet for the last several day. The coping and tiles are done as well as the deck but the expansion joint between deck and beam had not been filled with deck-o-seal.
1: I assume that water track down the expansion joint and around the out side wall of the Gunite shell and seeping back into the pool. Does anyone second that ?
2: Since they are schedule for pebble tech in a few days , should they wait until it dries up and no more seepage before proceeding.
3: is it normal to have this type of seepage ? The Gunite was shot more than 28 days ago.
4: will this be a potential problem later on ? If it is , what can they do to remedy the situation, does additional Gunite need to be added to the shell ? Or would the pebble - sheen do the job?
Any advice would be helpful, thanks in advance
