What is Gunite - Spray Concrete method?
Gunite or other shotcrete is a concrete type of spray applied. It consists of a large amount of cement, sand and aggregates with admixtures. Spray is applied directly to the shotcrete or mold after ironing and electrohydraulic installations have been installed.
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:
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.
