If you are talkin about a vinyl lined pool the answer is yes you can.


How would you describe a gunite pool Are they common?

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.


How much does it cost to install an above ground pool?

for in-ground estimated costs are $7,000-$16,000 for a vinyl-lined model, $15,000-$25,000 for a fiberglass shell and $17,000-$45,000 for concrete or gunite. But, custom designs can run prices much higher.


What is a vinyl lined inground pool?

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.


Once a gunite pool is converted to a vinyl liner pool can you convert it back to being a gunite pool I live in the Panhandle of Florida and have no problem with ground water?

If it was working ok before you lined it and you have no problems removing the liner you should have no problems.

Installing an aboveground pool can cost $1,500-$5,000; for in-ground $7,000-$16,000 for a vinyl-lined model, $15,000-$25,000 for a fiberglass shell and $17,000-$45,000 for concrete or gunite. However, custom designs can run prices much higher. source: costhelper.com


Is a gunite pool or vinyl liner pool better?

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)


What is the average cost of installing a medium-sized inground pool?

The average cost of installing a medium-sized concrete/gunite in-ground pool is roughly $30,000 (in 2004) with no frills (such as waterfalls, flagstone, inlaid tiles, etc.). That depends on whether you are willing to take the task on yourself or whether you'd prefer to hire someone. We saved thousands on ours by doing it ourselves - thanks, The Windsor-Browns You can also save alot on the cost by going with a vinyl lined inground pool.
