FOLLOW THE BUILDERS RECOMMENDATIONS!!! The pool plaster has to cure with the least amount of variations of the water. Heating the pool prematurely can cause the plaster to delaminate. Swimming too soon can lead to dimples and foot prints in the plaster that will always collect sand and dust and will always look dirty. Not a good idea.

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.

As long as the vinyl liner pool is inground, it can be converted. But you'll probably have to remove all of the vinyl pool elements until you have reduced the pool to a big hole in the ground and then start from there. All it takes is time and money!

According to an ad for a fiberglass pool company, it is because of the abrasiveness of gunite and for being in the pool too long. I am still looking for other answers and solutions to this question as well.

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.

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.

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 special concrete mix that is sprayed, with a specialized spray gun. Using Gunite requires, by definition, the use of the spray gun.

Damage can occur within four hours on a hot sunny. That's only if your pool is plaster. The pool in question is gunite. A gunite pool can stay empty for as long as it takes to do the repairs, no long them a month. But you have to make sure, and this is very important, to open the plugs at the bottom of the pool to releave any water pressure that is under your pool, or your pool can lift out of the ground a couple inches. So remember to relieve the pressure relief valves at the bottome of your gunite pool as soon as possible. Our pool is 20 x 40, freeform, gunite inground pool. It's 3ft to 8 ft deep. As soon as the water is about knee high at the deep end, my husband walks in and removes the plugs at the bottom to release the water that is under the pool. It pours out for a few hours then slows to a trickle. The plugs stay open until we are ready to refill. Make sure, however, you put the plugs back in so they don't leak. He uses white plumbers tape around the threads of the plugs to secure a good tight fitting. Good luck, hope everything goes well.

Gunite is covered with plaster. It is sprayed on concrete sorta. They mix it in the hoses and it is blown on. You can go to youtube and see them gunite a pool. I am only aware of plaster, vinyl or painted pool surfaces. The vinyl is just like thin rubber.

Muriatic Acid will get rust stains out of a Gunite Pool. To prevent rust, it is recommended to keep pH level of the water slightly acidic.

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.
