In general, the typical gunnite built-in pool will last a good 30-40 years before any significant re-work to the pool itself is usually needed. Given proper care and maintanence, there is no reason why a well-contstructed pool can't last 50+ years. This is evidenced by the fact that there are many, many pools still in service that were built during the 1950's. Hope this helps...
