Pool Construction

What is Gunite - Spray Concrete method?

Το Gunite ή αλλιώς εκτοξευόμενο σκυρόδεμα είναι ένας συγκεκριμένος τύπος σκυροδέματος που εφαρμόζεται με “ψεκασμό”. Αποτελείται από μεγάλη ποσότητα τσιμέντου, άμμου και αδρανών υλικών με πρόσμικτα. Ο ψεκασμός εφαρμόζεται απευθείας στο σκάμμα ή σε καλούπι αφού προηγουμένως έχει τοποθετηθεί ο οπλισμός (σιδέρωμα) και οι ηλεκτροϋδραυλικές εγκαταστάσεις.

Indicatively, the Gunite method has been applied to constructions of high requirements e.g. road bridges, tunnels, dams, restoration of buildings, etc. 

Why choose the Gunite method for your pool?

Choosing the Gunite method to construct your pool shell is more excelled than the classic method and has many advantages. For example: 

Full sealing.

Ability to construct in a freeform.

Excellent anti-seismic behavior.

Comprehensive shell (no joints).

It forms curves at the junctions of the walls, resulting the proper water recirculation and easier cleaning (sweeping) of the pool.

It requires less (more economical) total excavation as no external mold space is required.

Pool construction phases:

1. Creating a pool shape

2. Excavation in exact shape

3. Arming (ironing)

4. Installation (phase A) of electro-hydraulic networks

5. Concrete swimming pool with the spray method (Gunite method)

6. Damp proofing of the pool according to its final investment

7. Final pool coating (pebble, tile, paint, liner)

8. Completion of electrohydraulic networks (phase B) and installation of mechanical equipment.
