OT: Swimming Pool Construction: Days 12-15

Today is Day 15 and work has come to a standstill. The rain and snow have made the area around the pool very muddy. Also, I found out today that our building crew's supervisor is sick. As of today we don't know when the work will resume.

After the rain we found a lot more holes in the concrete walls where water had pushed through. Burton sent someone over to look at it and he said that would be easy to fix and wasn't a big problem. He said they have seen pools where water literally shoots out through holes in the concrete. Once the pad, liner, and water are in, the weight of the pool water will keep the ground water from seeping in.
