Baja/Sunshelf Structural Question and pricing
hi, we're in the process of getting quotes for our 18' x 36' freeform pool. We've asked each PB to include a quote for a baja or sunshelf. 2 of the pool builders have referenced reinforcing the shelf with additional gravel and steel (and the costs associated with that), the other pool builder said that there's no need for gravel b/c it is basically just a lump of gunite, shaped accordingly. Has anyone run into this issue before? Or, for any pool builders who might be reading, can you help shed some light on this? We're getting quotes for 5x5 or 4.5 x 6' areas. Thanks in advance!
