If you are talkin about a vinyl lined pool the answer is yes you can.
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.
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.
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.
I say gunite for the ability to create any shape pool you desire. Otherwise, you are stuck with the pre-fab design of the vinyl variety.
The average price for a 20' x 30' gunite pool would be $15,000 to $25,000.
That can only be because of the source of your water.
Inground vinyl is better, their is less exposed part to the oxigene, therefore, last longer.
== Is the water in?== Once the water's in, you're cooked.
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. One of the most difficult aspects of planning for an inground pool is estimating the total cost. 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.
Most pools are price by the perimeter foot and not by the shape.
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.
u can NOT convert one into another.... ud have to rip it out and start over... either gunite or fiberglass
There is special adhesive for this,sold in pool maintenance stores.
Call Leslies' Pool supplies. They have paint, but it's about $100 a gallon. Good luck.
Call an electrician.
thousands of dollars
In the frost belt Vinyl is better..Gunite is one of the strongest pools but when it freezes it can crack.. I agree. Vinyl is better and it will feel so soft and smooth on your feet.
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.
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)
what you can do in this situation depends on what is under the vinyl liner now.
Need to rephrase question.
It is highly unlikely.
If it was working ok before you lined it and you have no problems removing the liner you should have no problems.
