Tips on Closing Gunite Swimming Pools

Gunite is a preferred material for homeowners to use when having a backyard pool installed.  Gunite, is very versatile and is suited to build a swimming pool in the shape and size desired.  Top pool installers are partial to Gunite and are happy to accommodate to homeowners with their plans for a pool.  Knowing that a homeowner is using plaster to mold their pool it gives pool installers more freedom with the pool design, deck additions, and more.

Gunite pools are also popular amongst American homeowners.  Installing an in-ground pool involves excavation and construction involving setting up of the pools frame, a grid of rebar rods coated by Gunite.  Gunite is a mixture between sand and cement.  It is the substance that is sprayed in around the rods.  This is then allowed to cure for about a week and then the Gunite is smoothed and then the surface is finished with plaster.  A Gunite pool covered by plaster is far more durable than a fiberglass pool.  Just another advantage when it comes to installing a Gunite swimming pool

The sprayer unit combines the dry Gunite with water and this produces the mixture that is the structural element for the pool.   The crew then trowels the Gunite smooth and allows it to cure for a week or two before applying the smooth plaster finish.  Plaster is the combination of cements and marble sand.  Gunite pools are highly durable and a number of different plaster finishes, pebbles or tile can be applied to enhance the look of your pool area.
