I am also looking for answers to this situation. My pool was poured today while it rained. The walls in part of the pool collapsed just after they shot the gunite. There are now large sections where the steel is exposed and I am sure those areas are filling up with water. If you can help or give any suggestions please contact me at coronado4@msn.com


If there are chunks that have fallen and void areas, just reshoot those areas. The nice thing about gunite is there are no cold joints when you place new gunite over old gunite.

Of course most guniters charge a setup fee just to show up at the job no matter how large it is, so small shoots are expensive.

Gunite is not pored it is shot or gunned. How cold?

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.

You need to have the radiator flushed immediately

The in-ground pools are prefabricated. The bodies are made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic. This is an alternative to vinyl-lined, gunite and poured concrete pools.

Since Gunite is a force-applied cementitious application (simply "concrete", pumped from the mixer-truck through a hose to a hand-held high-velocity air spray nozzle), "wet conditions" may or may not cause a problem. If you mean that the soil conditions are persistently wet, and have a history of being low and wet, then you need to consider mucking out the area where the pool will be located and replacing the poor soil with properly placed and compacted fill, ONLY after you have determined the source of the water and proper drainage is in place. Gee, sounds expensive... consider new bicycle. If, on the other hand, you are asking whether or not Gunite may be applied to the formed shell and steel-reinforcement in the inclimate weather, then your consideration must be the force and volume of the rain, and it's effect on the Gunite. Concrete is often placed underwater for bridge construction, etc., and often contractors will place water sprinklers on a freshly poured concrete slab to enhance the curing and hardening process, so simply being "wet" is not necessarily a bad thing. The decision to install Gunite in questionable weather conditions will be made by the contractor, so be sure you've properly vetted the company's reputation, as well as warranty callbacks and performance. Good luck with your project...

When used properly, it can be poured into a wound that will not stop bleeding and will slow blood loss

Change and flush the transfer case fluid immediately.

If the cement had cured enough to maintain its shape IE not get washed away by the running water, The water on top of it should do no harm as a matter of fact it will slow down the cure and make the pool stronger in the long run.

Yes. Normally a properly poured drink will have the same dose of alcohol.

The sidewalk was so hot from the rays of the blistering sun that the water I poured on it, evaporated immediately.

Poured is the correct spelling.

It depends on the amount of bleach poured into the mixture. If it is too much it can cause the paint to fade and rubber trims on the vehicle to get damaged.

actually a gas can be contained in a container, basicly being poured, so plasma can be poured. YES

I don't know the reaction it would have on the coolant but I would advise you to flush out your system immediately and put in fresh coolant.

An unused portion of a chemical taken out of its container should be properly disposed of. The original container has identification information and warnings. Chemical that been poured out may become contaminated so should not be poured back.

gravity pulls the water down when it is poured

Poured is a verb. It's the past tense of pour.

pour - past: poured; past participle: poured

He got a glass and poured out a drink of water for himself.

It takes shape of the container it is poured in
