Wall crashed into couple’s pool, costing $350,000

After a shared boulder wall crumbled into their pool, an irate Brisbane couple detailed how they were forced to wait seven months for assistance.

Dave Barnham, a resident of Murrumba Downs, and his wife Tia claim that in February, during the city’s biggest rainstorm in years, a three-meter wall fell into their swimming pool.

They are now looking at quotations of $350,000 and complain that their property resembles a building site.

They can’t repair it until the neighbor who lives above them hears from his insurance carrier, even though it has been designated a risk zone.

According to Mr. Barnham, “We really glanced out the window and heard and watched it simply go right into the pool.”

The stones “just literally flew out” after being drenched in that one spot until it could no longer support them.

Although two homes share the wall, the Barnhams are suffering the most of the damage.

Mrs. Barnham said that for them, “patience is wearing extremely thin.”

We’re prepared to sign a contract to begin the work, but regrettably we can’t do so until we know how our neighbors will proceed as the work is taking place on both of their properties.

Even yet, the pair insisted that construction wouldn’t begin until the middle of next year, even if a contract were to be signed today.

They claimed to have contacted their insurance provider, Youi, right away and gotten findings from structural and geotechnical experts.

In essence, Mrs. Barnham said, “that retainer wall has constructed a dam.”

“The water has dammed behind that wall and leaked through the drainage from that wall as well as down the stairway that’s up there,” the speaker said.

According to one story, the wall’s collapse was aided by excessive runoff, which was probably caused by the overflow of three water tanks on the neighbors’ land and the channeling of water to the stairs.

According to another source, the soil’s inability to drain properly, weakened stability, and waterlogging all contributed to the collapse.

Additionally, it was discovered that the wall’s construction did not adhere to Australian requirements.

Rocks may start to kind of encroach closer to dwellings if the situation worsens, Mr. Barnham said.

The next property’s shared fence has given way, and 72-year-old Chris Price is worried about his residence.

I’m literally two to three meters from the retaining wall in my bedroom, he said. “It’s been seven months, and practically nothing has occurred.”
