Thanks Kim! I had a work meeting this morning and missed most of it, but it was definitely a site!My light switch is in the pool house right by the pool. It is by the steps leading to the pool.
What a wonderful sound that had to be............hearing the trucks drive up!! It is time for your own set of links!
The first set is about how to get a good plaster job. The second set is about how to care for you pool:

Now is also a good time to ask your PB what test kit they provide. Let us know so we can fill in an holes.
I think they all say that. Proof is in the pudding when you tell them, “I will only buy salt and expect warranty on everything except perhaps decking”. You’d be surprised how many become unallergic to salt.Our builder actually said the same thing about a robot cleaner. You are right about salt water, no builder we talked to would consider it and if they did, they'd void all warranties with the pool. Thanks for the suggestion and the link!
The coping is cantilevered concrete, so they are pouring the coping with the decking. I think that tile is going in next, then the coping and decking, so they likely still have some work to do, but my husband is contacting the PB today to discuss. They definitely didn't frame it per plan.How??will they stop the concrete from going into the pool?????
Thank you for this! I pulled this number off one of the very first quotes we had and knew it sounded off, but haven't taken the time to figure it out.As an aside, I also believe your pool volume is more than 10,600 gallons. It's more like 17,000 gallons (15 width x 30 length x 5 avg depth x 7.48 gallons of water per cubic foot).
Thanks. We're discussing with PB today and I'll bring this up. I probably posted pics before they were done with this portion of the job. My biggest compliant of this build is knowing what they are doing when. Even when we get a schedule from the PB, crews show up early and work is done before we know it.There should probably be a sand base under that re-bar for the deck
@kimkats quick text reply from the PB admin: "It will be litmus strips with the chemicals we use. It will be provided in pool school." Should I just get the TF-100 now? Admittedly, I have done very little research on this to date.Now is also a good time to ask your PB what test kit they provide. Let us know so we can fill in an holes.
I would get it now and test your fill water. It is the best test kit for TFP.
If you look at my pic you'll also see they left a gap between the rebar and forms so the concrete could fill the gap (and completely bury the rebar within the concrete). I can't tell from your pictures if you have the similar or not.We're discussing with PB today and I'll bring this up.
They have it set up with a gap as well.If you look at my pic you'll also see they left a gap between the rebar and forms so the concrete could fill the gap (and completely bury the rebar within the concrete). I can't tell from your pictures if you have the similar or not.
