The same question more-or-less was posted recently by yours truly. The most
helpful replies were directed to me privately. I will need to get them off
my other machine tonight and will forward you.

  I'm doing a small residential pool (about 35'x24' sloping bottom from 4'
to 9').  It's been awhile since I last did a fluid containing structure.  Is
ACI 315 the correct standard or does anyone know an accessible detailing
reference?  The primary structural design is not the issue.  I've usually
taken care of crack mitigation and detailed accordingly but I might have
forgotten something secondary but important.

  Is it common/rare to design the top edge apron as supporting the walls, or
should I stick with cantilevered walls?

  Since it's in-ground, I'm assuming seismic is not an issue ...?

  Any other advice?
