What are Gunite Pools

Definition of Gunite Pools

Gunite pools, as we like to call them, are a popular type of in-ground swimming pools that are made of a mix of sand and cement sprayed on a rebar framework. This unique construction method results in a highly durable and customizable pool, setting them apart from other pool types.

Difference between Gunite and Other Types of Pools

While there are several types of pool construction methods, the key difference between a gunite pool and its counterparts lies in the flexibility of design. Unlike vinyl liner or fiberglass pools which are pre-molded, gunite pools can be custom-built in virtually any size, shape, or depth. A homeowner can let their imagination run wild and create a unique personal oasis in their backyard.

The Composition of Gunite

When we talk about gunite, we are referring to a mixture of sand and cement that is sprayed onto a reinforced steel framework. This dry mix is propelled through a hose and becomes solid when water is added at the nozzle. The resulting structure is incredibly strong and forms the basis of our gunite pool.

Construction Process of Gunite Pools

Initial Design and Planning

The creation of a gunite pool begins with a detailed design and planning stage. During this phase, we work closely with our clients to determine the perfect size, shape, and features for their unique pool. Once the design is finalized, we then prepare the site and map out the pool’s perimeters.


Next, we move on to the excavation process. We dig out the ground to the desired depth of the pool. Post excavation, any required plumbing, and electrical work is carried out.

Framework Setup

Once the plumbing installations are done, our crew starts assembling a grid-like steel framework, forming the skeleton of the pool. This rebar framework provides the necessary support and shape for the gunite application.

Application of Gunite

We then apply the gunite to the steel framework. This application is done using a high-pressure hose, which sprays the dry gunite mix onto the rebar. After mixing with water, the gunite hardens and forms a solid shell.

Finishing Touches

Once the gunite shell has solidified and cured, our team sets the final touches like applying +the finishing material – usually plaster, pebble, or tile – and installing the decking and coping.

Benefits of Gunite Pools

Durability and Strength

One of the foremost benefits of a gunite pool is its strength and durability. Thanks to the strong rebar framework and tough gunite shell, these pools are built to withstand the test of time and elements.

Flexibility in Design

Another definite advantage of gunite pools is the limitless design possibilities. Whether you want a pool shaped like a guitar, a tropical lagoon, or a classic rectangle, we can create it with a gunite pool.

Long-lasting Value

While gunite pools may require a higher initial investment, they offer a long-lasting value. They are not just swimming pools; they’re long-term investments that increase the aesthetic and monetary value of your property.

Potential Challenges with Gunite Pools

Higher Initial Costs

Like any custom creation, gunite pools come with higher initial costs compared to pre-fabricated, one-size-fits-all options. But remember, with Gulf Breeze Pools and Spas, you’ll be getting a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that’s worth every penny.

Longer Construction Period

Given the custom nature of their design, construction of gunite pools does take more time. Good things take time, and trust us, the end result will be worth the wait!

Possible Need for Resurfacing Over Time

Over years of usage, your gunite pool may require resurfacing due to natural wear and tear. But don’t worry, we also provide resurfacing services, ensuring your pool remains in perfect condition.
