The plaster in the bottom is the thickest and is trolled to be straight. The plasterer is not going to use a transit to see if it is level, it's just going to be what it is. After working a year and seeing the construction of about 160 pools, I've never had a customer call back because the bottom of the pool was not level. I think it is a non-issue. The location of the main drains should be in the deepest part.
Some of the benefits of Gunite swimming pools are extnded warranty and reliability. They are a great brand.
A gunite pool shell IS waterproof before plastering. First, gunite/shotcrete is not water proof. The reason for the plaster is to make the pool water proof. You don't have to and should not water proof gunite because it will affect the bonding properties for the plaster. Contrary to the previous answer, Gunite is in fact "waterProof" when correctly applied. Unless there are improperly prep'd cold-joints (the point at which one application has stopped for some reason -perhaps rain, slow truck turnaround, etc- and begun at a later time), a Gunite pool could virtually be "painted", providing a high steel-trowel finish was applied to the Gunite. But, Gunite pops (begins to set and cure) faster than typically appied Marblite or Diamond Bright type cementitious finishes. Actually, the Gunite "finish" surface is purposely left fairly rouch, providing a better surface to which the finish/color material may bond.

It is know to be concrete, gunite or shotcrete.
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.
I have looked and have not found any so far
No. Gunite is 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.
Yes the next day but after thatthe longer its left the Harder it gets.
Call Leslies' Pool supplies. They have paint, but it's about $100 a gallon. Good luck.
It should be fine without water, but it would be safe to add some.
Gunite is cheaper However shotcrete is stronger
No, Gunite is a type of concrete.
By Gunite I assume that you were told you have a gunite pool, The gunite part is the foundation of the pool and does not require watering. The surface which is plaster over the top of the gunite needs water. If you just had your pool replastered in the last couple of days it is critical to fill it with water so the plaster can dry. If your plaster is older and been under water before a few days is not going to hurt. Although you do want to get it full of water as soon as possible. Kenny Kummer Brody Chemical
Gunite is a trowled-on cement coating similar to stucco.
Gunite, cement does not rust.
Gunite is not pored it is shot or gunned. How cold?
I have seen them last for more then 20 years
The average size pool (14 or 15 X36) approx. 19,000gallons gunite pool will cost you around $32,000. I recently went "pool" shopping with multiple builders and this would be an average price. This does not include all the extra water features, etc.
How often should you resurface a gunite pool?
gunite gunned in cold weather
Yes. Evaporation will happen regardless especially with a porous material like a tarp.
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.
