I just did a full size lap pool using product from poolrestoration.com. it was well worth it..

AnswerYou would have to be really good with a cement trowel in order for it to be smooth and dont forget that the prep work is key to it sticking and staying on for years. Make sure you acid wash the old surface and then use a bonding agent like bondkote. I am a pool guy for twenty five years and still arent as good with a trowel as my plaster guy cause he does it all day every day. Some jobs are for professionals.

The cost to resurface a gunite pool depends on your location, the size of your pool, and exactly what you want done. On average, as of 2014 it cost between $8,000 and $15,000 to resurface a pool.

Gunite is a trowled-on cement coating similar to stucco.

You would go to a pool builder

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.

Our pool installer told us to wet down our gunite once in the morning and once in the evening for seven full days after the gunite is installed.

How do yo resurface or replaster and old pool

User Avatar

No. An older (possibly better) type of Fiberglass pool was constructed in this manner, with a concrete/Gunnite/Marcite trowled bottom and Fiberglass panels at the side of the pool. Panels are caulked together along vertical joints. Actually not a bad deal, but caulked joints must be maintained. Once the concrete starts showing through at the bottom of the pool, its time to drain and resurface. Bottom of pool should be acid washed every 3-5 years to keep it sparkling and remove mold, mildew, stains. If bottom surface is chipping off, its getting close to time to resurface bottom of pool. Bottom is treated just like any concrete/gunite/Marcite pool surface. Sides are simply brushed, caulked in timely manner.

No, because gunite will not dry if it is constantly being mixed with water. Drain your pool first.

Best not to empty a gunite pool, period. Having the pool surface exposed to air and temperature chanfes and drying will result in cracking.

A fiberglass pool requires less maintenance, less repairs structurally in the future, is quick to install, and is good for smaller pools. Gunite pools are better for a pool deeper than 8 feet, custom shapes, and is a bit harder on the feet than a fiberglass pool.

"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.

Call Leslies' Pool supplies. They have paint, but it's about $100 a gallon. Good luck.
