Gunite pools use a rebar framework that is sprayed over with a concrete and sand mixture. The method is preferable over a traditional poured concrete pool that requires a wooden framework to hold the shape of the basin. Gunite is exceedingly durable, so swimming pools made of this substance are built to last.
Pros and Cons of Gunite
Building an in-ground pool can take up to several weeks and even months to complete depending on the size. One of the main advantages to gunite is that you can stop the application, return the next day, and continue spraying without creating cracks or odd-looking finishes.Because gunite is dispensed at such a great force, the new will bond to the old without creating a cold joint.Unlike fiberglass pools, gunite pools can be made on-site which allows for more flexibility and is easier to install.Gunite pools are incredibly durable and do not require a liner. This allows the pool to look better and retain its shape over time.One of the main disadvantages of a gunite pool is the time it takes to install the pool from start to finish.Gunite pools that are not tiled can sometimes seem rough to young children and have been known to snag a swimsuit. The rough surface of an un-tiled gunite pool can also house algae, so additional algaecide is needed to keep the pool pristine. There are several pool finishes that can be applied to your pool that will vary in texture.
