It's just the video is very unclear. A few closer pictures of the area would be great.Rich, I'm not sure how to get the pictures you're asking for... The issue is that the space between the pool wall and earth is a "layer cake" of excavated dirt and gravel. They topped it with gravel, so I would have to dig down somehow to get the pictures I think you're asking for. Please clarify. Thanks.
Rich, I feel like we're hijacking McLovitz's thread. Can we move future posts over to my thread? Here are two closer images - the one with the drain tube is where the video showed dirt backfill then a scoop of gravel over it. In terms of how deep were the fills? Do you mean how much dirt? The fill went down to the bottom of the pool.
Here is another of the dirt/gravel mix the guys were shoveling into the wall cavity:It's just the video is very unclear. A few closer pictures of the area would be great.
How deep were the fills?
We wanted to do grass up to the coping (that we provided) until we decide on a decking material. We knew we didn't want the broomed concrete deck/coping combo that came with the pool contract.If your contract says gravel backfill have him redo it. Otherwise wait a few months and flood it often and take a credit and hope for the best case. What decking are you going with
