These classes will begin with an overview of concrete pool construction and focus on the topics that have the biggest impact on the integrity of the shell. Learn how to identify potential problems as well as the “best practices and common terminology” remediation for each problem. Accountability and liability will be discussed. Repairs, Remediation and Replacement will be included. Bill Drakely will focus on the shell and construction practices. Randy Dukes and Jon Temple will focus on Cause and Effect Relations and how to identify the problems that need to be addressed prior to apply new surfaces.
