Yes, the construction can be restarted with no problems at all. Gunite is used to repair old decaying concrete structures, and can be applied overhead (vertically) and sticks to most anything. When you spray gunite onto something, even GLASS, it's stuck ... you WON'T get it off once it's hard, and it only gets harder. Gunite has the highest strength ratings, and as long as you (they) clean the 'seam' by power-washing the joint (can be done with the nozzle), you will not have a problem. We generally shoot the floor first, then over the next day or two do the walls. We have never had a crack, pool builders do this regularly, sometimes the weather can stall your project for weeks. Make sure that once the hull is installed, there is either no plug in the drain, or a hydrostatic valve installed! If the shell remains empty for too long, (if it's plugged) and enough water builds up underneath, it could literally float out of the ground several feet. If that happens, you could have a new layer sprayed on to "level up: the walls, and just have a pool that sticks out of the ground. If applied correctly, your gunite shell should have perfectly straight walls, etc, basically looking like it just needs paint (but a rough surface for plaster or tile to be applied to). Many companies just put in the shell, and leave an ugly rough shell that needs a LOT of plaster work to make the walls, tile, brick, and everything straight.

Can gunite be poured in cold weather?

Gunite is not pored it is shot or gunned. How cold?

Where can I find information on an gunite pool?

Swimming pool types include above-ground pools, fiberglass pools, vinyl-lined, gunite and poured-concrete pools. Learn the pros and cons of each type of pool.

How do you properly repair a gunite pool that was rain damaged immediately after being poured?

I am also looking for answers to this situation. My pool was poured today while it rained. The walls in part of the pool collapsed just after they shot the gunite. There are now large sections where the steel is exposed and I am sure those areas are filling up with water. If you can help or give any suggestions please contact me at Thanks If there are chunks that have fallen and void areas, just reshoot those areas. The nice thing about gunite is there are no cold joints when you place new gunite over old gunite. Of course most guniters charge a setup fee just to show up at the job no matter how large it is, so small shoots are expensive.

What exactly does fiberglass swimming pool mean?

The in-ground pools are prefabricated. The bodies are made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic. This is an alternative to vinyl-lined, gunite and poured concrete pools.

If you poured Barsleak into your engine and now it is burning oil do you have to replace the engine?

If your husband poured barsleak in the crankcase, it probably stopped up the oil pickup screen. It is supposed to be poured in the radiator. The engine is probably ruined if you have driven it with the oil light on.

Can gunite be poured in wet conditions and will this affect the integrity of the gunite?

Since Gunite is a force-applied cementitious application (simply "concrete", pumped from the mixer-truck through a hose to a hand-held high-velocity air spray nozzle), "wet conditions" may or may not cause a problem. If you mean that the soil conditions are persistently wet, and have a history of being low and wet, then you need to consider mucking out the area where the pool will be located and replacing the poor soil with properly placed and compacted fill, ONLY after you have determined the source of the water and proper drainage is in place. Gee, sounds expensive... consider new bicycle. If, on the other hand, you are asking whether or not Gunite may be applied to the formed shell and steel-reinforcement in the inclimate weather, then your consideration must be the force and volume of the rain, and it's effect on the Gunite. Concrete is often placed underwater for bridge construction, etc., and often contractors will place water sprinklers on a freshly poured concrete slab to enhance the curing and hardening process, so simply being "wet" is not necessarily a bad thing. The decision to install Gunite in questionable weather conditions will be made by the contractor, so be sure you've properly vetted the company's reputation, as well as warranty callbacks and performance. Good luck with your project...
