new pool build - depth mistake
We just had the gunite blown in the pool. Now that we can enter the pool we noticed what looked like a problem with the depth in the shallow area. after measuring we discovered the water line which was supposed to be 3.5-4ft is actually 2.5-3ft. If we measure to the very top of the gunite the pool only measures 38 inches. It is a huge mistake on the part of our contractor, the engineering plans were not followed. Anybody know if there is anyway to fix this without breaking out the entire structure and starting again? The pool is built into a slope so it is possible to raise the walls rather than dig out the bottom but do not know if this is a legitimate fix or not. Really an upbelievable situation to be in, we checked all his references, went to view his other pools. Now we question everything he tells us.
