I completely agree. I'm very impressed with their work. I just walked around in the pool and it's even more impressive close up. Perfectly symmetrical and all the slopes are pretty perfect. No big bumps, divets, etc.That is among the best vinyl pool floors I've seen! I like that they made the transitions smooth. It makes it look more like a gunite pool with their free-flowing interiors.
I went to see him a few weeks back and had a discussion about the filters. In his ignorant opinion, I had to have a 24" so that it was is sitting in my backyard. My buddy had the same pool installed by this guy (except the bigger model 26x40) and it's been 10 years and he hasn't had any issues so I'm sure it'll work out ok. Annoying that he won't put the 27" but he is the "expert" lol.Yes, it looks very nice. He's doing a good job with the structure. However, I would tell the builder you want the 27" filter with the 2" MPV. You could always tell him to put the 2" valve on the 24" body (it fits just fine) but I can't imagine why he'd want to do that(?)
Wow, that would certainly be a worse situation than where I am right now. They were able to tell with the suction from the vaccum that it was not a proper fit and cancelled the water trucks right away. I'm glad they arent making excuses and just doing it properly even though its costing them a few thousand dollars. The owner of the pool store called me yesterday morning to apologize about the situation and said that the liner was not perfect and he doesn't accept that.From what I've gathered on this forum, yes, a lot of people have this, but it's usually discovered after the builder has filled the pool. Then the fun starts: "Oh, they'll disappear when the water stretches the liner", "Oh, the water will compress the creases and you won't notice it", "We can drain the pool and try to get it to lay flat but no guarantees and you'll have to pay for the water", and the best one, "They all do that"!
At least your builder is going to fix it (I'd still be ticked about the filter, though)!
