I've noticed that the prices given on various sites seem to be low. I am in the process of getting estimates now. I have gotten 3 so far. The first thing I can say is there is no "average". Gunite is custom in every way. How they do give prices is by sq footage... for a 700 sq foot pool, we got an estimate for $72,000. This does not include the fencing, the heating tank or its installation(it did include the heater)and it only included 500 sq feet of stamped concrete around the pool and a 50 sq foot swim deck, a 3x6 waterfall and no spa. The 2nd estimate was for a bigger pool, 1000 sq feet. It came out to $111,000, did not include the fencing or the patio area, but included just about everything else. This is with a spa, waterfall, and a 8x16 swim deck. One of the estimates did break it down for us. The pool itself was $43,000, that included nothing but the basics, filter system, 2 lights and I believe a vacuum. I believe it has a lot to do with what region you are in. We are in the NY area. The average price of a typical built in pool is around $30,000. A really cheap one might be built for $20,000 in some parts of the country, but the pool will lack many of the features most people expect in a new pool and very few pool builders will want to build one. If cost is an issue, you might want to consider a below ground pool with a liner rather than a gunite pool. Add a spa, decking, and high end equipment and you can easily be up in the $40,000 to $50,000 range, depending on size. Talk to a few pool owners and pool builders in your area for more detailed information.

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.

Pebble sheen is the finish on the surface of a pool gunite is the cement that a pool is constructed from in other words you can finish a gunite pool with pebble sheen.

Yes, this can be done however, basically the only thing you can use from your vinyl pool is the actual 'hole' and maybe equipment. The cost is not much less than having a new gunite pool built.

Either gunite or fiberglass will work well for an indoor 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.

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.

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.

Most pools are price by the perimeter foot and not by the shape.

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.

"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.
