Concrete Pool Builder in Sydney Explains Why Concrete Pools Are Preferred

Published September 18, 2023

Your Local Pool Builder, a pool contractor based in Dural, NSW, Australia, has explained in a new blog post the advantages of concrete pools. Concrete is a popular material for building in-ground swimming pools because of its versatility and durability. Furthermore, concrete is the longest-lasting material for constructing pools, with some of these pools made of concrete having life spans exceeding 30 years. In addition, a concrete pool can be made to fit any size or shape. It is also possible to add steps, caves, benches, and even slides to a concrete pool. These pools are also more energy efficient because concrete tends to retain heat, and it doesn’t need as much energy to maintain.

There are two concrete pool types, which are the gunite pools and shotcrete pools. Gunite pools, which are also called dry-mix pools, are built by applying a method where a mixture of cement and sand is sprayed onto a rebar framework. The mixture does not contain water until it reaches the nozzle where water is added. The process results in the creation of a robust structure while allowing the building of unique designs and shapes, Gunite pools have achieved the reputation of being strong and durable, and capable of withstanding high use and extreme weather conditions.

Meanwhile, shotcrete pools, which are also called wet-mix pools, employ a similar process used for gunite pools except that the water is already mixed with the sand and cement before it reaches the nozzle and is sprayed onto the rebar framework of the pool. With such a process, a slightly stronger and denser material compared to gunite is achieved. Shotcrete pools have a solid and monolithic structure that ensures a high level of longevity and leak resistance. Shotcrete pools are also high customizable in terms of shape and size.

There are various benefits of concrete pools. A key advantage of swimming pools made of concrete is their longevity. They can outlast other kinds of pools as long as they are well-maintained because concrete is strong and durable can withstand general wear and tear and various kinds of weather conditions. Another advantage of such pools is that they can be made into any kind of shape and size. And the aesthetic possibilities are practically endless. For instance, a pebble finish may be used, or the homeowner may prefer a shinier finish using glass or tile.

Furthermore, concrete pools can be constructed with a deep end, which allows for deep diving. This is not possible with vinyl or fibreglass liner pools. Concrete pools can also be easily adapted to unique landscapes, such as those that are irregular and sloping. Concrete pools can easily be made to fit into a hillside or a steep upgrade.
