Best Answer

Yes. You will lose an average of one foot on each side of the pool because of the thickness of the gunite wall. My recommendation is to check the referrences of the contractor. Make sure they've done this kind of work before, and ask to see one, or more, of their conversions. Also, the costs involved are about the same as having a new pool installed... you're not saving a significant amount of money just because you already have the hole in the ground. Good Luck.

Can a vinyl liner pool be converted into a gunite pool?

Is it possible to have a fiberglass or vinyl liner installed over a concrete swimming pool?

Yes but its not recommended. You would have to replace the liner very soon. I have a customer who spent almost 60 grand on a pool were the liner was placed over concrete and now 4 years later she is spending almost 6 grand to replace the liner and redo the pool with vermiculite. Best bet is to refinish the pool with either gunite or vermiculite pool crete and then put in the liner. A liner can last ten to fifteen years before having to be replaced and then when it is replaced, it looks like a brand new pool.


Is a concrete pool or vinyl pool better to install in New Jersey?

Both are fine. Due to the short season a vinyl liner pool will hold up for many years. The problem with a viyl liner pool is you have to stick to certain set sizes and designs. Small leaks can be patched, or eventually replaced with a new liner. A concrete or gunite pool will last for 25 - 30+ years. They can be constructed in custom designs.

Is a gunite pool or vinyl liner pool better?

Gunite is a type of cement mix used in the walls of the pool, whereas a vinyl lining is just a layer on the walls, generally used for waterproofing purposes. So, either of them will do, but my personal opinion is that using a lining is always better (hence vinyl lined pools are very common in England and other countries)
