Swimming seasons is here! And if you are installing a pool in your backyard, there are three main materials that pools are made from: concrete, fiberglass, and vinyl. The most popular choice is a gunite swimming pool because it is highly durable and it can be created in just about any shape. Gunite is a concrete material that is sprayed over a rebar framework.

Gunite is exceedingly durable, so swimming pools made of this substance are built to last. Gunite pools are truly great and to be fair other options do exist such as fiberglass, and vinyl pools, but we will cover gunite in this post.
