Advantages Of Gunite Pools

Swimming Pool Design and Construction

Gunite is the best material for building inground swimming pools, its superiority doing the job is unequaled. It is a pneumatically applied concrete with superior strength, up to 6000-7000 psi. Gunite has one of the best "CV's", as it has been used to build the Olympic competition pools, as well as the inground swimming pool at the White House in which the president takes his morning laps.

Gunite is the preferred material by both homeowners and contractors, as it can be shaped in any form or design, thus being perfect for the homeowner with a vision. A gunite pools professional can also help you perfect your vision, by providing assistance with blueprinting the design and suggestions about the pools creation or the objects that can come with it, such as fountains, streams and landscaping.

Excavation is necessary when installing gunite pools; the entire process from start to finish, normally takes 8-12 weeks. Be sure that your gunite pools contractor is a member of the APSP (Association of Pool and Spa Professionals).

The addition of a gunite swimming pool to your home is a superb investment in both your spare time and in your health, as swimming is a wonderful form of exercise for your entire body. Swimming in gunite pools builds long, lean muscles and gives you a wonderful cardiovascular workout. Many doctors and physical therapists say that swimming in gunite pools is the exercise of choice, because it doesn't put pressure on joints and you don't have to be swimming, per say, to enjoy a superior workout. If this is your wish, you can jog in place in your gunite pool or simply move your arms back and forth through the water for your muscles to enjoy the benefits of natural water resistance.
