Prado and Sons came by and looked over the plaster in the pool.

Debbie Moles returned my call, and that she would try and have me the time schedule by the end of the week. She said that she is trying to schedule times for the repairs.
She needs to schedule Dave with Prado to try and spot acid wash the step with the footprint. If he is unable to remove it then they need to resurface the pool.
She contacted Pentair to see if they can figure out the heater.
They need to remove the water sheer, and install a larger sheer. They have already remeasured the area. She is unsure of when they will be able to install the new sheer until the interior of the pool is decided.
The peeling stucco will also be replaced at that time.
I told her that all work needs to be completed before March 31st. She stated that all the work should be done before it gets warm, but would not give a date.

I called Paddock again and left message to call me.

I called and left a message for Debbie Moles. I am trying to find out the status of the pool repairs.

Kelly Sharp with Paddock Pools showed up along with a diver to fix the main drain and cleaning jets. He also replaced the filter air bleed and pressure gage due to it was allowing air back into the system. They also blew out a chunk of plaster from the main drain, it is no longer plugged. The gate to the pool area was adjusted so it closes now.
Dave with Aqua Torque came out and looked at the footprint etched into the step. He tried blending it with the surrounding area, but was ineffective. He said they might be able to remove it by draining and burning it off with acid. But he could not guarantee it would work. The other areas in the plaster that are stained or rough can be fixed.
Fiberstar looked at the fiber optics falling out of the waterfall. He would have to get in contact with the installers to see if they had any stronger glue to hold it in. If not they may have to redo the optic in the water feature.
I asked Kelly Sharp if he knew when they were going to fix the stucco on the face of the waterfall. He did not know. I mentioned that the pool heater would not heat and that it freezes over even when it is warm outside. I also told him that all work has to be completed before this years swimming season. He would not commit to a time frame. So I am going to make my own. If the pool repairs are not complete before March 31, 2007 I am turning everything over to lawyers to battle it out. Unfortunately as soon as lawsuits are filed all work stops till settled but not much work has been done anyway.

In Person

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

I went down to Paddock Pools to ask them in person when the repairs would be done. I met with Debbie Moles and she said that a diver and Kelly Sharp would be out on Wednesday 01-24-2007 at 10 a.m. to fix the cleaning jet and main drain.
David Lafferty would be out also to look over the interior finish. He would let them know if it is a warranty issue or not. Prado has told them that they do not think that the stains and footprint are from their installation of the interior.

Debbie Moles called at 11 a.m. and said she was setting up a schedule for the repairs. She had to coordinate with Fiberstar, David Laferty – pool interior – and a diver for the drain. She will call me back with a date for them to be out.

At 10:30 a.m. I called paddock and talked with Charlette. She told me that Debbie Moles would be handling the warranty work and will have her call me right back.
6:30 p.m. nobody returned my call.

No Prime

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Today I went out to check chemical levels and noticed the main filter pump will not self prime. Since I have it set to run at night, I wonder how long it has been running dry. I had to pre fill the basket filter for it to prime and run.


Sunday, January 7th, 2007

Still no news about the repairs to the drain or anything else for that matter. Another week gone by, I guess I will have to go and remind them again.
