REALLY??? ONLY 3-4"???? GURRRRR just think of the poor people who don't have TFP in their pocket! GOOD for you for standing up to him and getting it done RIGHT!!!They had even re-dug the spa before starting the steel because it had been substantially smaller previously. He tried to convince me that it was “only 3-4 inches” but I knew better because of this group and said, “wait won’t that mean 6-8” once the gunite and plaster is in?
His offer, take off $500 or re-do the spa. I asked them to re-do the spa, especially since I have raised this issue over and over.
Hopefully they will be done today.
Here is hoping it gets done before they inspect! NO work=NO inspection!Thursday is inspection, then gunite next Monday.
GOOD for you!!! Stick to what YOU are going to have to live with once they are GONE!!!The spa is a long term commitment, $500 just wasn’t going to cut it.
They, begrudgingly agreed to re-do the spa. It took the better part of the day but in the end, the measurements we correct before gunite.
Is there where you would have asked them to put it? AND of course they did it wrong SO glad that part of the crew is GONE!They also threw together the fire pit, I’m assuming because I asked them to re-do the spa. It was all wrong and the gunite guys had to dismantle and re-form the fire pit to be able to gunite it and have it come out to the correct size.
The gunite has been the smoothest process so far. They were here at 7am and were helpful, efficient, and gave us some great ideas of where to put the steps, the umbrella sleeve and ideas for the fire pit.
You have seen that YOU have the power to get what YOU want/need for YOUR pool. Being lazy here but did someone go over your equipment for you yet?I am a bit concerned because the same company that dug the hole and did the plumbing and rebar are the same ones that are supposed to help us buy the pool equipment. I have read so much on pool equipment and still don’t understand it all. I’m worried they might steer us in the wrong direction. So happy to have TFP to lean on
Thank you!I see that you have 2 heaters on your bid. Just wanted to mention that we only have one heater that is tied to the spa. However, we have a relay switch that allows our spa to overflow into the pool while heater is on and it heats the pool as well. Was told that it was cheaper to have one large heater than to have two separate. It’s a 400 btu. It has worked well and heats our 28,000 gallon pool by about 1 degree per hour. It also heats the spa quickly when heating only the spa. I don’t know if that’s an option for you just suggestion.
