The plumbing can be moved up easily enough. The weep screed issue was due to poor elevations on the excavator's part and the shotcrete crew should have done a better job. That could lead to issues down the road.

Is this an owner/builder pool?

Thank you for your thoughts. What issues could the weep screed issue this lead to down the road? I am using a PB and he says that he will have to grind down the concrete so that the weep holes are no longer covered.

We never received bids for a pool that wasn't raised but I know that you will need to pay for extra tile and gunite (and probably more steel rebar too). I think the majority of the extra expense with our raised pool is because it has two infinity edges requiring overflow troughs and extra pool equipment.

Was it a lot more expensive to raise your pool up? We are thinking about doing this too. We have desert tortoises so it's either a raised pool or a fence.

Water getting into the house from rain. Probably not all that likely but why take the chance?
