Gunite pools offer a unique and durable option that allows you to customize your pool to your exact specifications. Gunite pools are constructed with a combination of concrete, sand, and water, creating a mixture that is sprayed onto a steel-reinforced frame. This application allows for a variety of shapes and sizes, and provides a long-lasting, durable pool surface.

Why should I consider a gunite pool?

Additionally, they offer long-term durability, resisting cracks and structural issues better than other pool types.

What is the difference between gunite & shotcrete?

The major distinction between shotcrete and gunite is that with the former, the concrete mixture is already blended with water before application; it just solidifies when it touches the ground. In contrast, gunite is a plaster-like mix that only combines with water once it’s sprayed from the application hose.
