today no workers on site because i not got the waterstop jet, the shop promised to deliver today, but not see them jet.
so i hope tomorrow can put the waterstop in and adjust (lift) the rebar for about 5 cm and put the small 5 cm concrete footings under (home made from empty PET water bottles ) bent and bow the rebar to adjust if nessesarry and order the 10 m3 concrete 280 water proof. probably pooring on saturday or monday, good we are not in a hurry,

I did use 2 layers in the walls,
you could also use one layer depends on the wall thickness and the space between the steel i used 2 layers with 20 cm grit space, if using one layer i would recommend 10 cm space between the steel rods. it would result in a thinner wall (15 cm) mine are 20+

Hi,

I'm looking at building the same size as your pool. How do you know how the piping system works, with skimmer and adding lights in pool?

If you buy all your technical equipment from one reputable supplier, they will provide you with free diagrams and schematics for the plumbing and electrics.
