So glad you caught the error. I was going to give you your next job but am guessing you don't need me to say it but I am going to any way just to be on the safe side. Take your plans out and match all of the pipe to your plans. Are the lights, returns, skimmers, ect in the correct spot or there at all? We had one build where they mixed a light and return up. It was not caught until they shoot the shell :(

Wow.. Moving very fast for all those details. Have you checked the top of pool beam elevation in relation to your existing patio or house entry. Do you already know how the pitch and drainage will work on the patio?
Yes they explained all of that but honestly I don’t remember all of the details of it. Patio is being capped to match the deck. We have a sump pump being installed to assist with sunken patio. Also tying in several downspouts on the house into drainage system.

Work Day 13 (actual days - 20) nothing to show really. Rain this week and the crew did some clean up on the site as the inspector gave them a red tag on keeping sight clean. Also the forms came off the pool.
Work Day 14 (actual days 21) crew finished framing the gazebo. Next up roof and some finishing details.

Looks good. LOVE the valves the used!

Lets talk about that white tube standing tall by the heater. I am guessing it is a tablet/puck feeder. Not sure what the black line coming off of it is or does though. If that is a puck feeder then you need to make sure they put in a check valved between it and the heater. Also know you will not be able to use the puck feeder for long or often. The pucks have *extra* stuff in them to bind them together. They do add FC which you need BUT they also add CYA aka stabilizer which you also need but not too much. If your CYA gets too high then you have to drain and replace some of the water :( Here is chart showing the correlation between the two FC/CYA Chart I also don't like the fact they did not use unions on either side of it. Over time it will need to be replaced so you will have to cut the pipe there to do so.

I would LOVE to see you look into a SWG as seen here: Salt Water Chlorine Generators - Trouble Free Pool If you don't want to go that route you can do like I do and add liquid chlorine each day. No biggie really just not as easy as the SWG

BLING!!! I LOVE that water line tile! Now here is something else for think about with it...........what color grout? White will make each tile stand out where gray will help them blend together. Both are very pretty. Ask to use their grout sticks to see what color you like the best.

Work Day 16 (actual days 25) - tile started today. Gunite crew didn’t slope the negative edge in spa so someone is coming back to do some chipping out before they tikes the spa. Also some work on the pergola ceiling.
