The Journey To Your Backyard Pool Paradise: Advantages of Gunite Pools

In the realm of luxurious swimming pools, there are two materials most often used in their construction: gunite, and concrete. While both offer an abundance of benefits, there’s a reason why many homeowners opt for gunite pools and why we at Living Waters Gunite Pools & Spas use it exclusively (and made it part of our company name). In this blog post, we’ll walk through the advantages of choosing a gunite pool over the more traditional concrete pool.

Flexible Design Options

One of the biggest advantages of a gunite pool is in its ability to have almost endless flexibility in design. Unlike pre-formed concrete pools, which are limited in shape and size, a gunite pool is constructed wholly onsite using a mixture of cement, sand, and water sprayed over a framework of rebar. For those not familiar with the term “rebar” these are embedded steel bars that provide structural strength to the pool shell and helps stabilize the fresh gunite to build up walls, The ability for gunite to be extremely flexible in design options allows for virtually unlimited design possibilities, from free-form shapes to intricate features like waterfalls and integrated spas. With a gunite pool, the only limit in design is your imagination.

Longevity and Durability

Gunite pools are also well-renowned for their longevity and durability. The application process creates a solid shell of gunite that is resistant to cracks and damage, ensuring your pool withstands the test of time. Additionally, the surface of a gunite pool can be finished with a choice of various materials such as plaster, tile, or pebbles, further enhancing its durability and aesthetic appeal.

Personalization and Customization

Every homeowner who longs for a pool dream of one that reflects their unique preferences and style. With gunite pools, customization is key. From different options available in choosing the color and finish of the interior, to adding custom features like tanning ledges and swim-up bars, gunite pools can be tailored to suit your exact desires. This level of personalization ensures that your pool is built as a true extension of your home and lifestyle.

Increases the Property Value of Your Home

Having a gunite pool significantly increases the value of your property. Not only does a meticulously well-designed and maintained pool enhance the visual appeal of your property, but it also adds to the overall desirability of your home. Whether you’re looking to sell in the future, or simply increase your property’s value, a gunite pool is a very sound investment.

Low Maintenance

Even with their luxurious appearance, gunite pools are relatively low maintenance compared to other types of pools. The smooth surface of a gunite pool makes cleaning extremely easy, and routine maintenance tasks like chemical balancing or vacuuming are very straightforward. Utilizing Living Waters Gunite Pools & Spas to provide regular servicing and proper care, your gunite pool will remain in quality condition for many years to come.


The advantages of having a gunite pool instead of a concrete one are clear: flexible design options, longevity and durability, customization options, increased property value, and ease of maintenance.
