When to Consider Repairs for Your Gunite Swimming Pool

Changing or Adding Water Features

A swimming pool on its own provides hours of entertainment, but why stop there? Make a truly unique pool with custom water features to add a touch of elegance to your backyard. These features can even be added to your pool after the main construction is complete, and most repairs will be finished in under a week so you can get back to swimming! Choose from a list of lovely additions to your pool, including:

  • Waterfalls
  • Slides
  • Scuppers
  • Bubblers
  • Bridges
  • Fire decorations


As durable as a gunite pool’s surface is, it’s not indestructible. On rare occasions, you may see chips or cracks caused by the ground shifting too much or something heavy being dropped into the pool. Either circumstance calls for your pool to be resurfaced. Not only will your newly refurbished pool look better, but it will also last longer once the repairs are complete.

Changing the Pool’s Size

Even with precise measurements, the size of your pool may not be exactly as you had envisioned. Maybe it’s smaller than you imagined. Alternatively, maybe you barely have room to walk around the pool to get to another part of the yard. Either way, it’s easy enough to change the size of your swimming pool. Just update your contractor with the new measurements you want and let them get to work.

Pro Tip: Are you happy with the shape of your pool? Gunite can mold to fit virtually any shape and create a truly unique swimming pool.

Restructuring Your Gunite Pool

A gunite swimming pool for your backyard is a significant investment of both time and money. As you’re designing your pool and watching it take shape, make sure it’s exactly what you want. Keep improving upon your design until it matches your dream.
