If you are talkin about a vinyl lined pool the answer is yes you can.
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)
u can NOT convert one into another.... ud have to rip it out and start over... either gunite or fiberglass
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 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.
If it was working ok before you lined it and you have no problems removing the liner you should have no problems.
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.
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.
Gunite, cement does not rust.
The gunite pool is basically what most people refer to as the in-ground concrete pool. Because this pool will shape to the contours of your yard, it is a great choice for those who want something more unique than the typical vinyl lined pools. The tile on the gunite pool can be cleaned with household tile cleaner when you are doing your deep cleaning of your pool. This requires that the pool be drained and rinsed thoroughly.
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.
I have not heard of it being done before I have heard of fiberglass conversions however
