Guess this is just the blinding layer.
The pipes will come on top of this concrete layer in between the rebar-layers. I guess

Hello Rdtech
Yes you're right. I called it a slab of cleanliness!
I assumed my english is not top but I cannot do better now! :roll:

You are right again :wink:
My contractor is a professional who has already done many swimming pools. I think he knows his business and I cross my fingers!
We have already used its services for the system of filtration of the water that we draw from the underground water table.

Got a question for you too:
You say you are building an infinity pool. Which in my humble opinion means you have a side or sides where the water will fall in a lower tank or gutter giving an effect like the pool doesn' t end but goes on in the scenery. In your drawing in the very first post i see an overflowpool with a gutter all around except at the spa. What is your idea behind the design?
An infinity pool also has all other sides significantly higher as the "infinity wall (s)". ?????

Hello Rdtech,

 My pool will have a gutter all around it except around the spa. This one will be on-high and will overflow in the pool. The gutter will drain into the buffer tank which will be located under the technical room.

In answer to your question I will say that a real mirror pool (infinity pool) overflows everywhere. If it is a partial overflow pool, wells on the other sides will be higher than the sides has overflow.

I followed the construction of your pool but I see that you have not posted anything for more than a month. Looking forward to seeing more ... :D

Hello Olavhome,

I also hope they do a good job with the rebar! My brother-in-law who knows under construction but no pool comes regularly in the evening when the team finishes working and not to wrinkle and he has nothing to complain about.
The team that makes our pool told us that our is the seventh of roughly similar shape they build.

Today the reception of young trunks of eucalyptus and other forms of wood that will certainly serve for the shoring of the formwork during the pouring of the concrete for the walls.
The formwork panels for the inside part of the walls also arrived there A few days.
