Rich D you are the winner. 😊
The Badu system requires 6 inch pipe if the run is over 30 feet to minimize pipe loss. It really is massive.

We passed our inspection on Friday and the team was here installing the solar heater. Planning on gunite next week but will know schedule on Monday.

It’s gunite day. They have been here for over 2 hours already. Quite the production.

Gunite complete. Now it looks like a pool. Had a problem when they realized the bench was set too high. Had to reposition the rebar and lights while digging out the dirt in the way. Team came together and our bench depth is now correct. Glad I was here to watch as I would have been worried all day.

Rich D, they were throwing lots of rebound out. Amazing how much there is.

That's a huge underwater step you have there! :D Can we come over and play underwater hockey in your new pool?

I used to play in a league that had a pool like this.. you had to slide the puck up the wall and on the bench/step to score.

That bench is one example of why I suggest the home owner been there. Most crews would have left it like it was unless being watched over. Good job making sure it got fixed!
