Groundwater seepage/ pool remodel
We are trying to finish our pool remodel. The new tile and coping is in. Yea!
The problem is that the pool keeps filling up from ground water seepage through the holes the contractor drilled in the deep end. We are getting 6-12 inches of water a day seeping in, and currently there is about 2 feet of standing water in the deep end. It hasn't rained since last week, but the water is still coming in.
They put a pump in the pool last week to drain it and cleaned it up and put on the bond coat. However, due to the seepage, they did not bond coat the bottom of the deep end.
So we are waiting for the seepage to stop so the bond coat can be completed and the pebble sheen applied.
So here is the dilema...can I do anything to speed the process? We have rain in the forecast next week, again. I'm afraid that waiting for the pool to dry out is going to be a long long process made worse every time it decides to rain again. Will I have to wait for a drought until they can finish the pool?
Would repeatedly pumping out the water speed the process?
Any advice/comfort is welcome.
Sorry, I'm feeling a bit helpless.
