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 i Convert vinyl liner pool to gunite pool?

Choosing between a vinyl liner pool and a gunite pool depends on a variety of factors, such as budget, durability, design flexibility, and maintenance requirements. A vinyl liner pool is typically less expensive to install than a gunite pool, but it may require more maintenance over time, as the liner can be susceptible to tears, leaks, and fading. In contrast, a gunite pool can be more expensive to install, but it offers greater durability and customization options in terms of size, shape, and features, as well as a longer lifespan. Additionally, a gunite pool may require less maintenance over time, as it is less susceptible to damage and fading than a vinyl liner. When choosing between a vinyl liner pool and a gunite pool, it is important to consider your budget, design preferences, and long-term maintenance needs, as well as the advice of a qualified pool contractor who can help you evaluate the pros and cons of each type of pool and make an informed decision.
