Yes, this can be done however, basically the only thing you can use from your vinyl pool is the actual 'hole' and maybe equipment. The cost is not much less than having a new gunite pool built.

How can you determine what your inground pool surface is What is gunite?

Gunite is covered with plaster. It is sprayed on concrete sorta. They mix it in the hoses and it is blown on. You can go to youtube and see them gunite a pool. I am only aware of plaster, vinyl or painted pool surfaces. The vinyl is just like thin rubber.


What is a vinyl lined inground pool?

An inground pool is typically lined with either gunite (concrete), fiberglass, or vinyl. Gunite and fiberglass are roughly the same cost, whereas vinyl is considerably cheaper. With the lower price comes less durability, as vinyl lining has to be replaced every 8-10 years or so, whereas the other two can last for decades. Vinyl is also much easier to puncture or otherwise damage. That said, many people still prefer vinyl inground pools due to the lower cost.


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

What is the cost of a vinyl or gunite in-ground pool in the Chicago area and are the quotes you have received for 35k and 55k too much?

In the Chicagoland area a small, basic inground pool will cost between $20,000 and $50,000. Some of the larger, deeper and more high-end inground pools can cost as much as $100,000.

There are several variables that affect the overall cost of building and maintaining an inground pool, including the size of the pool and the material will comprise it.

Is a fiberglass or vinyl or gunite pool the best?

Depends on the type of pool, i.e. inground or above ground pool. * My brother has had an inground vinyl lined pool for at least twenty years. He ives in an area which is southwest of New Orleans. That pool has survived more pool parties, hurricane parties, followed by hurricanes themselves (including Katrina) without a tear nor a leak. My above ground pool is a Doughboy and it has the side walls concreted into the ground. It is now eight years old. It survived hurricanes Lily, Katrina, and Rita in just the past 4 years. However, if you can afford it, gunite is probably the best. Around this area, fiberglass is often too light in weight and will float up with floods.

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.
