What is it?
What is it?
Gunite is a method of applying concrete to swimming pools. It is unique to your custom swimming pool, fire pit or fountain.
A crew will arrive in material transport trucks, a compressor truck which tows a Bell mixer as well as one or more pickup trucks carrying finishing equipment. Depending on the size of the pool, the crew will complete the installation in three to six hours. Some larger pools, such as those found in subdivision park areas, will take two or more crews and may take up to 10-12 hours.
Bulk concrete and sand are hydraulically mixed in specialized transport trucks. The sand and cement mixture is auger –forced from the material trucks into a Bell mixer for additional mixing, then delivered under compressor pressure through a hose. Water is then added at the hose nozzle, hydrating enough to insure the gunite doesn't slump as it is applied to the pool walls.
Due to the limited moisture in the mix, gunite dries very quickly. Finishers then smooth the walls and floor, shape the spa and form any custom features according to the builder's plans. Gunite must then "cure" for seven to ten days before plaster is applied. It is recommended that gunite should be watered daily for best results.
