Just curious. is this 4th bonding spot a requirement that the PB did not know or did he simply forget?Deck was mostly finished Thursday and the inspection was failed on Friday. They needed to connect the bonding wire from the deck to the bonding wire in the gunite in a 4th place and only 3 were already available, so they had to chip out a chunk of gunite to be able to attach to a fourth point. Is there anything specific I should be watching for when the repair the giant hole that they chippeed into the gunite? The hole is below the water line on the outside of the back wall of the pool.

It appears to have been an oversight by the plumbers who ran the bonding wire (my best guess). When I spoke to the guy who chipped this out, he said it seems to happen all the time... which isn't exactly reassuring? Seems like the plumber isn't familiar with the requirements of the city.Just curious. is this 4th bonding spot a requirement that the PB did not know or did he simply forget?
He should provide you a process as to how he will repair this. It should be straight forward but the key will be to maintain the strength of that section. Waterproofing with the plaster should not be an issue as it appears you have several inches of gunite from the rebar to the pool surface where the plaster will be applied.
That wall faces the back side of the property, so we were just going to have it covered with that material that dresses up concrete a bit (not sure the name of the material, it is just a cheap concrete-ish finish).They should fill in that hole and put something up to hold the fill in until it hardens. The rebar being there will really help it "connect" to the rest of the shell and help keep it there..
What will you be putting on that wall?
