This is the first we've had in a while. Our "rainy season" took a break for a couple weeks, until today. Poured hard a couple of times today in PC. I got dumped on jogging at lunchtime. Got home and jumped in the pool to cool off, even though it was still raining :-) Why not? ha Then I rinsed off in my new outdoor shower :-)

Yep he has been keeping an eye on every step. He wants water in the pool and can't figure out why no one is putting any in yet!

did they tell you to water the concrete when it has set up? if they didnt you might want to check with them. the water slows down the drying and lets it cure like it should especially with the temps here. it will make the concrete much stronger. just got to hit it with the garden hose.

I don't see a channel drain between the house and the new concrete! I hope they have a good slope away from the house! Otherwise the rain water will rest against the house with no place to go and it will get moldy.

I see mother nature is going to start filling it via that downspout awkwardly placed into the pool. Why did they do that instead of out into the yard? That's just more water they will need to suck out when they plaster the pool

Not real sure why they didn't put it out into the yard, it was actually our idea to put it there in the first place. They said no big deal on sucking it out of the pool they do it all the time. Tomorrow they will take the gutter out anyway. It was just to keep a torrential rain from cutting a hole in the stuff while it was wet, it didn't rain until about 5 hours after it was poured. It's set up pretty nice now.

We don't need to water the concrete as mother nature has taken care of that for us.

There is a drain channel everywhere the old and new concrete meet and all along the house. There is some sort of tape over it for now, It came that way right out of the box, guess to keep the concrete out of the channel. They scraped a lot of the concrete off and will remove the "tape" after the flocrete is put on. If you look at the picture with the dog you can see white along the house before it got mudded in.

Tomorrow the electrician comes.

Just went out there and looked again, had they placed that gutter towards the yard it would have been laying in the cement, not nearly long enough to go to the yard.
