Water leaking through PebbleTec during fill.

We just finished a pool and as the pool is filling up I noticed a spot in the pebble that was leaking water into the pool.

Our builder seems to thing that it's no big deal and we'll just "keep an eye on it" but I have no idea what I'm doing and it seems like a big deal to me.

Is it a problem?

you may want to provide a picture. Are you saying the ground water is seeping through the gunite and plaster (pebble)? Did the PB explain where the water may be coming from?

This is from just before they started filling it. Yes it's coming from the ground. It's not a ton of water but it's a visible trickle.

Builder thinks it's probably coming from the neighbors sprinklers and he's probably right, they tend to overwater. I just don't know if it's a big deal or not.
