Mike,

Thanks for the pics... Nice looking set up..

Why did they remove the sump pump from the deep end? I would have wanted it in place until the last minute before gunite..

Thanks,

Jim R.

I'm not sure about that, they took it out 2 days ago and they are shooting gunite now.

That is going to be one awesome pool!!!
How deep did you go on the deep end?

It is also nice to see you still have some grass left and they didn't dump the dirt everywhere. That was one gripe I had (different company)... they didn't remove ANY dirt until the very end and spread a ton of it all over the yard. Because it got cold and into dormant season right after it was done, we still haven't bothered putting grass down so it's a huge mess still.

Congrats on getting it started :mrgreen: Can't wait to see the progress!

We went 6.5 in the deep end and lucky for us we didn't need well pointing ... they hit a small amount of ground water so a portable pump was all they needed as they finished the rebar in the deep end.
