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.
If it was working ok before you lined it and you have no problems removing the liner you should have no problems.
As long as the vinyl liner pool is inground, it can be converted. But you'll probably have to remove all of the vinyl pool elements until you have reduced the pool to a big hole in the ground and then start from there. All it takes is time and money!
You can use the same hole in the ground for both a vinyl liner pool and a gunite pool. You should not need a new hole dug.
Whats yer question?
Its a oval shape pool, 19,3'X43' size, 4' deep at one end, after 12' slopes down to 10' deep.
It is best if you do so that the water can circulate and so that the granular chlorine does not sit on a liner pool cause it will discolor the liner. With a gunite pool it can cause bleaching spots. It is not necessary though.
Yes you can but you would be replacing the liner every 3-4 years when you can build a gunite pool using the old pool as a base and get another 30-40 years of enjoyment out of it.
u can NOT convert one into another.... ud have to rip it out and start over... either gunite or fiberglass
Gunite, cement does not rust.
The plaster would not adhere to the liner. k
How often should you resurface a gunite pool?
No. Gunite is concrete.
Pebble sheen is the finish on the surface of a pool gunite is the cement that a pool is constructed from in other words you can finish a gunite pool with pebble sheen.
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.
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.
Either gunite or fiberglass will work well for an indoor pool.
how do i find and repair leak in gunite pool with water in it?
building pool myself just want to contract out the gunite job are you interested
The average cost of a gunite pool is $75,000. The price for the installation of this type of pool can range from $50,000 to $100,000.
Gunite is a trowled-on cement coating similar to stucco.
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)
It would depend on what kind of an in-ground pool you refer to, i.e. gunite, concrete, block, vinyl liner, wood, or fiberglass.
You would go to a pool builder
