Pool Construction

Concrete/Gunite Pools

The conventional building material of choice for in-ground pool construction is concrete.  It’s a popular type of in-ground pool because it’s durable and can be customized to any shape or size. Concrete pools are usually more expensive than other pools, but they offer many advantages that make them worth the investment.

A concrete swimming pool is designed to take up a full water load along with the capacity to withstand large pressure loads. The significant loads on the concrete pool structure are the weight of the earth outside the pools and the weight of water held within the pools. The thrust created varies when the water in the pool is emptied for cleaning purposes. It may or may not cause an effect on the concrete based on the design efficiency.

This type of pool begins with excavation and a framework of steel. Concrete is poured and then sealed with a coat of plaster (which can be re-applied over the years as needed).
