Choosing the right material for your pool can be a challenging decision. However, the shotcrete process offers several advantages that make it a preferred choice.
Shotcrete pools are not only durable but also versatile, allowing for a high degree of customization. Whether you want a simple rectangular pool or a complex design with curves and contours, shotcrete can accommodate all of your needs.
At BAM Shotcrete, we pride ourselves in our expertise in concrete pool construction, especially when it comes to shotcrete swimming pools. Our comprehensive approach ensures quality and durability, making us a trusted name in the pool industry. We’ve been specializing in shotcrete pools for years, creating unique and exciting designs.
Our process starts with the installation of a reinforced steel rebar cage, a crucial part of building concrete pools. This steel frame is what gives the pool its shape and provides the necessary strength and stability. Once the cage is in place, we apply the shotcrete material over it. The shotcrete method, as recommended by the American Shotcrete Association (ASA), involves spraying the concrete onto the steel rebar cage, forming the pool surface and floor.
The next step in our shotcrete construction process is allowing the concrete to cure. This essential phase enables the concrete to reach its maximum strength and durability. During this time, we ensure the requirements for proper curing are met to guarantee a long-lasting and sturdy pool.
After the concrete has thoroughly cured, the finishing process begins. This involves smoothing out the pool’s surface and adding any desired finishes, such as tiles or pebble aggregate. With our team’s meticulous attention to detail and commitment to superior craftsmanship, we transform backyards into stunning aquatic paradises.
The debate between gunite and shotcrete often arises among pool buyers. While both materials are widely used in the pool and spa industry, shotcrete is the newer technology and has been recognized as the superior option for swimming pool construction. The key differences lie in the application process and the final product’s durability and efficiency.
Gunite is a form of dry shotcrete and involves the mixture of cement and sand, which is then pneumatically applied to a surface. This process, called the gunite application, requires water to be added at the nozzle during application. While shotcrete already includes water in the mixture. This means that when shotcrete is applied, it is fully ready to set, making the process more efficient.
Furthermore, shotcrete forms a more durable and resistant surface than gunite. Its dense consistency and high strength make it the ideal material for constructing pools and spas. At BAM Shotcrete, we have over 45 years of experience installing shotcrete pools.
While gunite has its merits, shotcrete’s efficiency and durability make it the preferred choice for pool construction. Not only does it create a smooth, durable pool surface, but it also allows for more creative and unique designs.
Whether you dream of a simple backyard pool or a luxurious spa oasis, shotcrete can handle the job, ensuring a beautiful and durable result.
