I actually used this product for my pool with great results. And used it after my neighbor had applied Sider Proof FF PR in his pool the year before.

Ok...welll it has been a year now and the Sider Proof is holding up great! I had to drain my pool and it still looks new! So far great stuff!

Gunite is cement that anyone can make in their backyard. Concrete is manufactured at a plant to plus or minus 0.05% tolerance and delivered to the job site in a constantly turning concrete truck. Concrete (aka shotcrete) is far superior to cement (gunite). -Bill

No, Gunite is a type of concrete.

"Gunite" is a special concrete mix that is sprayed, with a specialized spray gun. Using Gunite requires, by definition, the use of the spray gun.

Gunite is cheaper However shotcrete is stronger

Our experience shows that gunite or fiberglass are good. Gunite would probably last the longest. CONCRETE tends to crack over years with normal ground shifts. Had two pools with concrete, so many cracks after 10 years, buried the thing, the repair costs were astronomical.

How often should you resurface a gunite pool?

User Avatar

Gunite = Cement (shot from a gun) Shotcrete = Concrete (shot from a gun) Gunite is cheaper and easier to use. Concrete is more expensive and lasts much longer.

Either gunite or fiberglass will work well for an indoor pool.

Some of the benefits of Gunite swimming pools are extnded warranty and reliability. They are a great brand.

This very subject has been debated for years. I can tell with full confidence, that gunite is much better than shotcrete. Both are good depending on the builder.. I can tell you with full confidence, having worked for more than thirty years with both gunite and shotcrete that shotcrete is far superior to gunite. Shotcrete will test out stronger, to much room for human error with gunite.

It's a standard concrete mix that only becomes 'Gunite' when blasted from a hose that controls the amount of water.

If you don't water your gunite, the gunite won't cure to its full strength and probanly will crack one day. Always double check with your pool company about a recommended watering schedule.
