We got gunite on Thursday, watered that night and 3x on Friday. There was a thunderstorm last night and today our water is almost neon green and it seems to be staining where it is weeping near the dry plumbing. I’m not so much worried about the weeping as I am about the color, is this normal?

I am not sure about normal, but ours looked like that after a few days, we got our gunite on Monday and they finished Tuesday morning. Now our turned from greenish to mud color.

It really does not matter as it will all get pumped out................you can go ahead and pump it out. This will keep it from being a mosquito breeding pond.

Oh you will see some weird colored water for sure...no worries at all...enjoy your neon pool for the time being. I remember when ours was almost like a milky blue/green at some point.

Our was different shades of green when it had water sitting in it from various rain storms. It’ll be fine. They’ll pump it out when they com to tile your pool. For now, enjoy watering three times a day!!!

Plumbing was started this morning and equipment dropped off this afternoon. They said they’ll be back to hook everything up in the morning. I panicked a little about the valves behind the pool but the PB said they’ll be buried with valve boxes. (They’re to adjust the scuppers individually at startup to ensure even flow since they’re are different distances from the equipment)

Make sure the equipment matches what is on your contract!
I checked the equipment and noticed the plumber installed a Hayward C4030 instead of the C5030 in our contract so the PB is going to have it swapped out. Otherwise everything else matched the paperwork.

Tile started yesterday, they came back today and I assume will be back tomorrow.
Pics of what’s been installed so far and I am happy with our choices. I didn’t pick a grout color and it was a little dark when applied but it dried lighter and I think what they used looks great. Still have the 2x2 tumbled travertine on the columns to do, grout on coping and can’t wait to see the glass tile installed on the spa!
Raised wall: 2x4 Light Split Face Travertine
Columns: 2x2 Light Tumbled Travertine
Waterline: MasterTile Mascaspea 6
Plaster: Wet Edge Signature Matrix Caribbean
Spa comfort curve: Keystone 1x2 Aqua Blue
