Dude, you have got an awesome looking pool and setup - don't sweat the small stuff. We started our digs about the same time - mine was "done" sooner because we went with fiberglass. But even though mine is done, it still isn't done. I'm doing most of it myself now, or with the help of a young man who does some landscaping on the side. I'm dealing with some puddling in the yard around my decking as well, and I will take care of that this summer with a load of dirt and my Kubota! (Yeah, that's cheating, I know.). I was also too cheap to lay sod, so I've been slinging grass seed and straw, and finally, the weather has been warm enough to get some growth. Lastly, I've gotta get some landscaping rock, but the supplier is out and it's been too wet to do it recently anyway. I was happy with my PB, although the project ended up being a little more "hands on" for me than I was anticipating, but that's probably just my nature.Yes I have been documenting in email and text and photos throughout. I’m so done with these people.
Like Kimkats stated, documenting via email is the key. I started communicating via email from the very beginning with the occasional texts. It has come in handy too. I have caught multiple items being done either completely wrong or opposite than what we had previously discussed. Since the initial dig on February, there hasn't been one conversation between us that he hasn't used the phrase "miscommunication on my part." It's been small stuff but when the simple stuff is hard to get right, it tends to make me overly aware of everything. Good Luck on completing the pool build. I'll be keeping eye on your final completion.Yes I have been documenting in email and text and photos throughout. I’m so done with these people.
Will do.Please share the pics here:
This will be our attempt at having one place that we can view the finished product of various Plaster/Pebble/Quartz/Vinyl/FG/etc. pool finishes. Simply attach a good pic looking down at the steps and another one looking at the deep end to share how it looks at different depths. Make sure to...www.troublefreepool.com
Make sure to note the color and kind of plaster.
How in the world did they manage that??? did they even try to get it out or did you have to?poured half a wheelbarrow of wet cement into the pool on the steps
What does the PB have to say about this???I also think I have a suction side leak on plumbing in the ground that is flooding my yard.
Nothing yet. It has been radio silence. I think I have it narrowed down to my auto leveler is leaking under the cement somewhere. I turned it off and my yard dried out and there is no more water running in the street. that is a problem on two fronts. 1- the auto leveler water line is leaking. 2- why is it getting into my drain?I looked like ducky was making a break for it!! Man that is BAD! UNREAL!

I hope you keep any eye out for future builds in your so you can share your experience by PM.
