While most swimming pool types are flexible in terms of shapes and sizes, concrete or gunite in ground swimming pools are generally the most flexible.  They can fit into practically any backyard and can be formed into any shapes, depths, designs.  Like most pool types all extras are typically available with concrete in ground pools. In some cases, you can get things with a concrete swimming pool that is not possible with other types. For example a beach entry pool is not really possible with a vinyl pool but is very possible with a concrete pool.

Concrete pools are generally constructed with metal rebar.

Rebar is a type of metal that is shaped, connected and placed in the excavated swimming pool site. Once the rebar is in place gunite or shotcrete is applied over the rebar. Gunite and shotcrete are both types of concrete.  the difference is the mix and the application process.

After the shotcrete or gunite is applied, a finish is placed over the concrete surface.  Concrete swimming pool finishes come in many styles, types and colors.  One of the most popular finished is pebble finish.


It usually takes about 7 to 10 working days to complete a basic concrete swimming pool.  After your pool is complete the largest maintenance issue that is unique to concrete pools is resurfacing.  depending on your chemical usage and how well you take care of your pool a concrete finish should last 10 years.
