Gunite pools are famous for their durability and versatility. Some benefits or Pros of gunite pools include the following:

  1. Durability: Gunite is concrete sprayed onto a pool’s framework using high-pressure air. This creates a robust and durable surface resistant to cracking and chipping.
  2. Customization: Gunite pools can be built in any shape or size, making them a good option for homeowners who want a unique, custom pool.
  3. Low maintenance: Gunite pools do not require as much care as other pools. They do not require special chemicals or coatings to maintain their surface and are resistant to algae growth.
  4. Energy efficiency: Gunite pools can be equipped with energy-efficient pumps and filters, which can help to reduce energy costs.
  5. Long lifespan: Gunite pools have a long lifespan and can last for many years with proper maintenance.
  6. Versatility: Gunite pools can be finished with various materials, such as tile, plaster, or quartz, to create multiple looks and feels.


  • Cost: Gunite pools are generally more expensive to install than other swimming pools, such as fiberglass or vinyl.
  • Maintenance: Gunite pools require more maintenance than other types of pools, as they need to be resurfaced every 8-12 years to prevent cracking and deterioration.
  • Construction time: Gunite pools take longer to construct than other pools, as the gunite mixture needs to dry and cure before the pool can be used.

Overall, gunite pools offer a durable, customizable, and low-maintenance option for homeowners who want to add a swimming pool to their property.
