What assurance do you have the PB will ever return? Do you have any financial leverage at all this point?Water chemistry question... The PB is pouring the concrete collar and leaving the job site until spring. The pool has the water in it that was trucked in and it has since turned dark and green. The pool is uncovered and the bilge water frozen on top. There are no chemicals in the pool.
Is this normal?
I though Leisure Pools USA required that the water be tested and maintained weekly (at least during non-covered season) in order for the gel coat warranty to be honored. I read that unattended water can cause issues with the gel coat. ??? Lost.
Latest update... The PB shot the pool level with his laser and confirmed the settling (out of level). He said the pool will have to be partially "pumped" and lifted to correct, or use coping/tile to hide. We are 1.5" out over 12'. This equates to 5" over 40'. It is very visible and even the steps appear sloped.Okay, more bad news...
We have had unusually warm weather, so I took the opportunity to go out and clean up and inspect the pool-install-in-progress. They poured the concrete collar a few days before Christmas, and aren't returning until the spring, when it gets opened for the first time (it was not opened yet, so no water in pipes, or even electrical hooked up yet).
Previously I had posted concerns when they placed the pool in the wrong spot and rather than lifting it, opening the hole, preparing a proper/wider base, and reinstalling, they just dug a wider trench and dragged the pool sideways by 18"-24". My concern was the combination of a lack of a proper gravel base and the fact that they mixed a lot of soil in the back fill. Well, today I went out and sure enough, the pool is grossly out-of-level on the width span (which is under 12').
I measured a 1.25-1.5" difference from water level to top of shell in the 11'10" width. It is visibly not level, and a level confirms it's out. It looks worse than when they first installed it, which leads me to suspect that it has settled in just this short period due to improper base and clean back fill.
The guys at River Pools (Jason Hughes) say that it should be (all around) within a half inch.
Any help would be appreciated.
