This is where the pool starts to look like a pool. This is the main structure of the pool and is an amazing process to watch and worth seeing if possible. You will also notice that the steps seem very steep. This is normal at this stage because there is no water in the pool. Once there is water in the pool, it won't feel any different from any other pool you have been in. It is very important to arrange to have pool watered down periodically, especially during the hot summer months.
The shotcrete company normally will leave detailed instructions on when and how to do this.
We always advise setting a sprinkler in the pool and turning it on in the morning and off in the evening for a few days. You cannot water the pool too much and do not worry about the standing water left in the pool. We will have it pumped out eventually. If you have not yet chosen your tile, now would be a good time to do so.
