The next process of your pool construction is the application of gunite. Gunite is a mixture of sand, rock, and cement that is applied by spraying it through a hose. CLP works only with the most qualified and experienced gunite crews in the entire state to skillfully shoot the gunite around the pool's steel reinforcement grid. This process takes about a week's time. After the gunite has been completed, we need your help to help the gunite cure properly by thoroughly soaking the gunite top to bottom 3 times per day for a minimum of 1 week after application. Don't worry about any water collecting in the pool as it will be pumped out before the pool's interior finish is applied.
