I am in the process of having a gunite pool installed. When digging we hit groundwater about 1.5 ft from the bottom. I know the builder put some crushed stone on the bottom but not sure how much. We have been pumping for about 2 months now and they just applied gunite last week. If we turn the pump off the water comes up. The builder put 2 holes in the bottom temporarily. The hose broke the other day and I could see water coming up around the bottom drain. What should the builder do to seal this up? Will this be an ongoing issue? I should keep the pump running until they plaster and fill the pool correct? Should I have any concern in the long run or do something to help now? Thanks
