Why Choose a Gunite Pool
Many homeowner choose gunite pools because of their customizability, durability and longevity. Unlike traditional concrete or vinyl liner in-ground pools, gunite pools are composed of a sand & concrete mixture that is sprayed into the specific pool design. Every part of the pool is then carefully crafted with a specially-designed nozzle. Gunite pools are also laid out with metal framing as opposed to wood, increasing its structural integrity. We proudly serve pool owners in Greater Danbury.
With gunite pools, you have many options from the shape, size, finish and features that can be added on. Pool specialists from Aquatic Technologies will work with you to a design a pool that works for your landscape.

Gunite Pool Building Process
- Tile & Coping
- Deck, Fencing & Utilities
- Smart Emails
The building process of gunite pools starts like any other in-ground pool. The layout process consists of setting radius points and laying it out with string and paint. Excavation then begins, digging out the poles depth. Forming the pool is done after excavation, and is also where the gunite process begins as a metal frame is used in place of a wooden frame. The subbase is applied through stone, and plumbing also begins to be inserted at this point.
Plumbing installs consists of main drains, skimmers, pool jets, waterfall pieces and any other elements needed for your particular pool design. Next, a steel frame is inserted to reinforce the structural integrity of your pool. Concrete is poured on the base and the unique process of gunite is finally applied. After the design elements such as tile & coping begin to be crafted. The last steps include installing a filtration system along with decks, fencing and other utilities.
