Ready for you first "job" for the pool build? Run out there with the plans and a tape measure. Is it long, wide, deep, etc enough? Add about 8" for the steel, shell, and plaster. Remember it will be 16" or so for the sides and ends as it is 8" for each side (yeah there was someone who got a smaller pool because they did not think of this :() NOW is the time to fix or tweak.

Thank you Kim. I was able to run around in the dark and verify the measurements given about 8 inches for the shell/plaster. How thick is the shell for the floor usually?

Late post. Rebar was completed last Thursday. The PM came out on Friday morning to verify everything looked right. He will be shifting/relocating the bubbler a little closer to the shell for it to be centered in the shelf.

This morning the inspector came out and approved the rebar installation. The PB called this afternoon and said shotcrete is schedule for tomorrow morning.

Wanted to get some advice and do/dont for Shotcrete. I understand that its a wet mixture in the hopper then shot but are the rules the same as gunite such as not resusing rebound?

Shotcrete crew came out this morning and completed the shot by 2pm. Very professional and knowledgeable.

I guess this is where construction slows down a bit. I will start the watering process this evening.

Sorry I did not see the question about rebound. That is no big dealwith the shell. It IS a big deal with the plaster. NO rebound allowed for plaster!!

It is time for your set of links! The first set is all about what to do and ask about to get a great plaster job. The second set is all about how to care for your pool after you get the plaster.

Plaster links:

Now is also a good time to ask what test kit your PB will be providing so we can fill in any holes.

Thank you Kim.

The shell seem good. Was told that the PB will be bond coating it before the PebbleSheen.

It seems like the next couple weeks will be progressing slowly. I will have plenty of time to go thru the links.

The pool build was only giving test strips. I have already purchased the TF100.
