New construction and afraid to ask this question
Because I'm a afraid of the answer I might get.
Our gunite pool was dug today while I was at work. Isn't the sunshelf and stairs supposed to be carved out of the dirt?
In our case we have clay and the swim-out in the deep end has been carved but there are no steps or shelf. It's just a big bowl with the one carved swim out in the deep end and notches where the skimmers are going to be.
In all the pictures of builds, I've always seen the benches, steps and shelves carved into the dirt during excavation, then rebar formed over that, then gunite.
How are they going to form my shelf and steps?? I've left a voice mail for the builder.
What should I ask him?
