    What are your estimates as far as time goes? We can play the how close did I come to my estimate game as well.

    Looks like a fun and a decent size job.

    Make sure to update pics. Are you concerned with losing soil runoff from under the pool decking and around the pool itself??? Looks like the wall was very close to the concrete decking.

    Today went very very well,,,,90 percent of of excavating was done today, and 50 percent of the concrete around the pool was broken up plus we managed to rid our selves of the last of the railroad ties and dig our footings for our wall.

    this guy loves to break stuff up, we had to do this by hand cause we drained the pool so not as to have a blow out but its a little to risky bringing a machine with a breaker close to the pool walls with no water holding them up
