help! pool construction disaster!
Hello - I am new to the site but love it. Unfortunately, I need some serious advice.
I recently had my gunite pool dug and shot. There is a 9' spa that spills over into the main pool and is supposed to be in the center of the deep end wall. The PB measured things wrong, and now the spa is off-centered. There is a swim out on each side of the spa with a 10" difference in their size and the spa is visibly off-center. I told the builder that getting it right was more important to me than any discount he could offer.
He has started to jackhammer out the spa to the level of the seats and says he can reshape the seats and exterior of the spa by cutting/chipping off gunite and adding new gunite to make the spa in the center of the wall. He is going to put new rebar around the upper part of the spa but some of the rebar at the base of the spa may be cut out in the reshaping process. He says this is ok since the base is so thick the rebar really isnt needed for strength there.
I am concerned the finished product will not have the same strength and longevity as it should. I am not sure what questions to ask. If he can get an engineer to approve of his plan and attest that it should be comparable to the pool as originally planned, should that be enough for me? Thanks.
