Comments on my estimate please
For a Gunite pool in Northeast. Pool only - coping to be done separately, no decking. No soil report, but we think it is clay soil. high water table at end of winter. Any additional items I need? Does price seem reasonable? Is rebar big enough? Is concrete too thin? I have read it should be 12" bond beam and 8-10" walls, and thicker floor and corners. Thank you for any help.
