In the bad news category, during epoxy repair of the initially discovered 250 linear feet of cracks in the pool another 125 linear feet was discovered during the process. The crack repairs are now completed. The coping surrounding the three pools has been custom ordered due to the color chosen. The manufacturer requires several weeks to make the stones as they must be poured with appropriate dye levels for an even look, baked and then set aside for a couple of weeks to properly harden for installation. The coping was ordered approximately six weeks ago and the blocks for the main pool have been installed. The manufacturer did not pour the stones for the wader pool or spa at the same time and has advised the stones will not be delivered until late Friday of this week or Monday.
The contractor has called for a pre-pour inspection of the 3’ cement surround required by code around the pool. The rebar is installed and will be inspected in the next week.
As a result of these delays, it is making it much more difficult to meet the April 15th completion date. The contractor has promised to bring in a second crew to speed up installation of the interlocking pavers. The pavers cannot be installed until the 3’ concrete pour surrounding the pools is complete to determine appropriate level of the pavers. The pavers are due for delivery on site this week.
All of the return flow leaks have been found and repaired and the pressure test continues to demonstrate no further loss of water from the pipes.
The pool water line tiles and depth tiles are on site and installation will begin this week.
The final large issue for the pools is the re-plastering. Once the plaster is installed, it requires a minimum of 10 days of warm dry weather to properly bond and dry. We have completed the demolition and repair cycle and are now in the rebuild cycle.
