CONCRETE POOLS

Concrete is a mixture of stone or gravel, sand, cement, and water. To create a concrete pool, gunite or shotcrete is used to make the concrete pool shell. These materials harden through a process called curing. As you can imagine, the greatest threat against this type of pool is cracking. That’s why a steel web is used to make the pool more solid and allows it to bend slightly without cracking.

Higher lifetime cost – Every 10 years or so, your concrete pool will need to be resurfaced and retiled which may make it more expensive over time.

Longer installation time – Due to the hardening process of gunite, concrete pools can take several months to be installed.

Durable and customizable –Concrete pools won’t get damaged easily and are one of the most versatile types of pools.

As you can see, each type of pool comes with its pros and cons. What fiberglass pools lack in versatility, they make up for in quick installation times, durability, and low maintenance costs. Vinyl liner pools have very low initial costs but high lifetime costs. Finally, concrete pools have a high degree of customizability, but like vinyl liner pools, can have higher maintenance costs.

Basic Pool Shapes and Sizes

 

Concrete/Gunite Pools can be custom design to almost any shape and size you can Image.

Below are some basic shapes and designs that can be constructed as is, or shaped into something that fits your imagination.
