December 30th, 2021

Having a pool in your home almost automatically makes your space better. You can spend hot summer days in the pool or just relax by the poolside. There are many in-ground pool options that you could have installed, and the best one is a gunite pool.

At JR Pool Plastering & Texas Gunite, we specialize in installing the gunite in new builds for pool builders. Gunite is a different kind of concrete that adds certain advantages to your pool.

When you think about a pool, you want one that will be sturdy and last you as long as possible, at least before you remodel it. With that being said, gunite gives you that opportunity.

As said before, gunite pools come with many advantages. Let’s list these advantages out for you.

The Advantages of a Gunite Pool

There are 4 distinct advantages of having a gunite pool. Each of them has proven to be things that gunite pool owners appreciate. So, read through these and learn about what advantages having a gunite pool can bring you.


Flexibility to Choose Shape and Pool Design 

When you have the ability to customize a pool, you want it to fit your space. Gunite gives you the opportunity to customize your pool easily. You do have this option with other materials, but it is much more complex.

When you present a certain layout or shape, our team can use the gunite to create that shape. There is so much flexibility. This makes your pool more personal and unique to your space. In addition to that, you don’t have to worry about changing your landscape because everything can flow seamlessly.

Easy to Personalize 

Continuing the topic of flexibility and choosing a design, the second advantage is that it’s much easier to personalize. Because gunite is a special kind of concrete, it is sprayed around the base that is set up for the pool. So, if you want to personalize any part of the pool, this is possible.

In addition to that, you can easily add amenities such as a waterfall or even a slide if that is something you want. Part of personalizing is choosing the finishing and color of your pool. And you can select the kind of pebbles that you wish to use. It is much easier to personalize the little details of the pool, unlike with other materials.

Longevity & Durability  

The third advantage to a gunite pool is that your pool is durable and lasts longer. Because pools are made of concrete, sometimes you’ll see that there are cracks in and around the pool. This is a problem that is common with many pools. But gunite doesn’t have this problem because it is a hand-mixed cement.

In addition to that, the gunite goes through a special kind of curing that doesn’t allow it to crack. So, the result of this is a pool that lasts long, and you don’t have to worry about going back to fix the cracks. Because you don’t have to worry about fixing cracks, you can save money in the long run, and who doesn’t like to save money.

Shorter Installation Time

The last advantage and one that all clients appreciate is that there is a shorter installation time. Gunite pools have a faster process for many reasons. First, the base of the pool is made from rebar. So once the base and frame are completed, all that’s left to do is spray the gunite and complete the form. Before you know it, your pool will be done.
