an inground gunite pool requires several skilled contractors.
Step One begins with the contractors laying out the shape, size
and location of the pool in your yard. Large equipment is needed
to dig the hold for the pool so it may be necessary to remove
stumps or trees to allow access for the equipment.
The contractor will lay steel rebar in
a grid like pattern on the inside of the pool, creating a mesh
like skeleton of steel. The size and spacing of the "grid"
will vary based on soil conditions.The gunite contactor will
cover all openings of the pool, skimmer, main drain and inlets
then applies several layers of gunite behind and covering the
metal grid. The gunite is applied by a spray hose and requires
skill and precision to apply.
Once the pool has the desired amount of
gunite sprayed on, it's time for the coping to be attached.
The coping is installed by a contractor, it is the top cap and
a decorative piece of the pool. Once this is done it's important
the the gunite "cures" for the next five to seven
