Transcript

  • 1. There are two major types of permanent pools: fiberglass and gunite. Gunite is a mixture of cement and sand which is poured against rebar to create the body of the pool. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 2. It is similar to shotcrete, however, shotcrete is poured wet while gunite is poured dry. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 3. One of the major benefits of a gunite pool is that there is no end to the flexibility and versatility that this kind of a pool can have. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 4. It can be shaped into any shape and made fit any size back yard. It can also be installed in places where a fiberglass pool wouldn’t be able to be installed because a crane can’t be fit into it. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 5. Many people may not know that the pool in the White House and pools used for Olympic Games are made out of gunite. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 6. The material is extremely durable and strong, and can be a permanent improvement to the home where the pool is constructed. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 7. The gunite is relatively inexpensive and solid. Unlike lighter pools, water can be safely drained out of it and the pool will stay in place. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 8. This is particularly beneficial when it comes to cleaning the pool, as sometimes it is much easier to replace the water than it is to keep adding chemicals to purify it. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 9. The plumbing is installed while the pool is being set up. The main draw of this type of a pool is its long life span. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 10. It is well suited to Arizona climate because the main enemy of concrete is the freeze-thaw cycle of colder climates. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 11. It is important to note that while gunite pools are very beautiful and can conform to too many shapes, they do take a long time to set up. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 12. Building the pool and pouring the gunite can take eight to twelve weeks. The pool will need to be plastered and can be customized with a variety of finish options. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 13. Some owners prefer to use colors to make a statement. Others use anything from glass to pebbles to create unique look. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 14. Gunite pools do require regular maintenance. This is particularly true in a hot climate where algae growth is a problem. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 15. They require regular cleaning and chemical treatment of the water to decrease algae growth and create optimal swimming conditions. The plaster usually needs to be replaced every ten to fifteen years. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 16. However, with proper maintenance, gunite pools can last a very long time. They are solid, can’t be punctured or scratched up from overuse, and are a good decision for a climate where pools can be used every day year-round. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 17. Due to the durability and reasonable price, these pools are primarily the choice for many commercial and residential owners. Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
  • 18. Learn more about Inground Pools like Fiberglass pool & Gunite Pool, Hot Tubs & Spas etc. from Pool Builder Tucson in Arizona. Visit us at www.PoolBuilderTucsonAZ.co m Visit us @ Pool Builder Tucson
