Sitting around waiting for work to be done is no bueno. We would go weeks at a time with no work. My project started April 3rd and we are finally nearing completion. Total days actual work was done in the last 5 months was 36 days of work. Hope you have better luck than I did.

Just got done measuring the excavation depth as kimkats advises. My 3.5 ft water depth measures 51” to top of form board and my 6 ft water depth measures 81”. This appears to give me a 6 inch gunnite / plaster depth to hold my depths. I think I am ok but wanted to confirm.

Just so we are on the same page water depth is halfway up the skimmer face. BUT with those measurements you should be good!

Don't forget to factor in your coping as well, that's going to be another 3-4 inches

Those are Bay Laurels. They grow reasonably quickly to give screening. Looking at filling the gaps with Bay Laurel shrubs to get a green wall.

Day 3 of plumbing now complete and I think we are almost done. 😊 Our yard is now one big hole surrounded by PVC. Hopefully plumbing completes tomorrow and the pre-gunite inspection passes on Friday.

Is that 5" pipe? or 6"? That's some massive piping. The 4" is for what?

I've only seen that in mechanical rooms for multi story buildings. With massive boilers.

I was thinking for possible runoff from the house and/or side yard. Cant see the gutter downspouts good enough but any water has literally nowhere to go now.
