We are building with a reputable builder in our area but still doubting if the rebars are far apart? Something to be concerned about? Please suggest.

If you are digging, the engineering plans were approved by the city. The plans should show how the pool will be constructed out of steel.

Go to your permit box. There should be a set of engineering plans there.

If you have any doubts after that, ask the inspector when he comes to check the pool before shotcrete.

Looked normal to me. In the deep end (if your pool has one) they usually put more Rebar. But 12 by 12 is pretty standard in shallow water. I can't tell for sure what the spacing is in your picture but it doesn't look like more than 12 by 12
