What problems should you look for in a gunite pool that was originally installed in 1993 and may not have had proper maintenance for the past two years?

Gunite pools require a lot of maintenance. This includes the draining of the pool once per year, special chemicals, and fixing the cracks in the granite at least once per year.

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.

"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.

How often should you resurface a gunite pool?

User Avatar

Gunite = Cement (shot from a gun) Shotcrete = Concrete (shot from a gun) Gunite is cheaper and easier to use. Concrete is more expensive and lasts much longer.

Gunite will generally last longer than fibreglass (if you take care of the plaster, and "cure" the gunite properly when it is installed). You can also make a Gunite pool any shape and size that you like, whereas you're limited to the few molds that a fibreglass manufacturer has. Personally, I like the feel of a plaster (gunite) pool on my feet *much* better than paint or fibreglass. The biggest advantage of concrete over fiberglass is the structure. 8in. of concrete and steel versus 3/4 to1in. of fiberglass. I'll take concrete and steel every time. 30 yrs. in the biz. tell me so.

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.

Either gunite or fiberglass will work well for an indoor pool.
