Hard Digs


Soil conditions are an uncertainty for any pool contractor.  While excavating, you never know what exactly to expect under the ground.  If you are lucky, it’s just soil.  However, you may have abnormal soil conditions or rock, causing a “hard dig” situation.  There are certain areas that are more prone to hard digs and we will do our best to make you aware beforehand, but the truth is, we just don’t always know.  Unfortunately, this can result in a larger than expected bill from your excavators – sometimes in the thousands.  Please know, that they do NOT make money on your misfortune!  In fact, it costs them as well due to equipment damage and maintenance. It also adds time to the job they did not expect. Understanding this process is key to maintaining good relations with your excavator.
