Pool Class 101


Do you know what is Gunite?  Today was 'spray the pool lining ' day! 
Trucks started arriving early this morning.  In the back yard and even in the front.
One truck contains the gunite (pure sand and cement dry mix) and the other truck is the air compresser (3000 ppsi) tanker. 
For the technically minded, namely my grandson, here is the process of applying gunite to the pool walls and floor.  It took about 5 hours of work today.

  4. I cannot believe he is in the pool when he sprays that!

    It is looking good and I love the stairs and ledges.

    Will they be making it blue? Do they use paint? I need to know what happens next!
