August 27th, 2015 | By: Mitchell Knapp | Pool Design Blog

You may hear swimming pools nowadays being referred to as gunite, and have wondered, what is a gunite pool? Homeowners today are gravitating towards adding a gunite pool to their home – which is a concrete pool, rather than a vinyl or fiberglass pool. A gunite pool is becoming more popular and the preferred method based on its durability, safety and ability to last against harsh weather conditions and wear and tear over the years.

Gunite is a next major step in the pool building process. Gunite pool trucks come to the site to spray and shoot the entire pool. Once that is all set, the electric plumbing  is able to be completed and hooked up to the units. Tiles, coping and any additional water features, such as waterfalls, are then done simultaneously, for this step it is important to get help from professionals and it can vary depending on each individual pool. After this stage, your inground swimming pool is washed and prepped for plaster. 

So, what is a gunite pool exactly? Gunite is essentially what holds your inground swimming pool together. Homeowners and builders alike want to trust in what is being used for their big investment. The safety for the families is a high priority and Gunite has proved to be the safest and most durable material to use when building inground swimming pools. It can withstand harsh weather elements and last the test of time.
