Sigh..another reason to worry. Pool builders..your opinion please
Here's an overall view. The back wall is the worry du jour. We wanted to cover it in Cultured Stone. The plan was to strip the black board off and then Thoroseal. The white pipes you see sticking up are going to be deck jets. The BIG white pipe sticking up will be cut to ground level and capped. It's a sump pump.
One day they built the boxy things around the jets prior to Thoroseal. First mistake. This was when I really started noticing that the ground along the whole back wall wasn't drying up - despite 80-90 degree days and no rain. We're on clay but the water on the ground stayed the same for 2 weeks. Landscaper wondered if we'd turned the sprinklers on. No.
Now I'm noticing all that rebar showing through. And on the inside of the pool, in the same location where it's really wet on the outside is a return. The pool IS NOT losing any water, tho. And we have not turned the deck jets on which was another theory.
I also noticed one area where the rigid PVC which supplies the back wall returns is partially exposed. How big of a problem is the rerod and PVC exposed? Also, any idea where the water might be coming from? Pool builder will come in the next couple days to look.
