I am a newby here. First pool, first experience, and lots of anxiety already.
We got our permit and will start excavation this weekend. Wish us luck!
I have a quesiton though, I live in North Dallas and the soil here is very expansive and cause cracks on houses, buildings, pools, etc. A lot of times, it doesn't happen but depending on the region, it happens a lot.
I heard that chemical injection is an option to be done before the pool is dug but the cost is around $2,500.
I also heard someone saying that if you keep the excavated hole wet for 1 week after the excavation, it helps to increase the moisture and the adherence of the gunite/pool to the ground. Is this true? Any advice out there?
Looking forward to post more info.
