That is a tough break...who did you get your pool kit from? I used pool warehouse for my pool kit and they were very easy to deal with on a few missing parts from my shipment.

The liner was the absolute last thing I did...so while waiting on a replacement you can continue on along with the rest of the plumbing/electrical/bonding/backfill/decking.
Got the pool kit from Pool Warehouse as well. Initial response on their end was great, very quick to request pictures and jump on it. Very happy with the initial response, hopefully it's smooth with the actual supplier of the liner.

You are spot on, after the initial disappointment, I quickly realized that there is no shortage of work still to do lol! Working on exactly what you listed right now, got an aggressive timeline with the deck being planned on going in 6/3 and 6/4.

Pool Warehouse should take care of you. Hopefully they can rush it through.

You still have plenty to keep you busy.

I'm glad pool warehouse got you fixed so quickly. Someone has been busy, it's a lot of work to get to this point.

More progress - got the deck around the pool laid. Made a mess of what we had filled, so cleaning and pumping that out to start fresh. Overall happy with the outcome but a little disappointed in the coping. Very rough with many pockets. Tempted to have them epoxy patch it and paint just the coping overhang. Really don’t want to tear anything out!ED97CDA1-C60B-49C3-8173-EA344C4D633C.jpeg
