Concrete pools may be constructed using different methods. They offer greater design flexibility and can be constructed in any form, shape or style. Ideally, these are appropriate for challenging locations. Also, the owners are not limited to designs that are pre-mold.
Concrete swimming pools usually consists of shotcrete shell or steel-reinforced gunite, which is capped horizontally with coping. The pool surface normally is made of marbelite plaster, otherwise known as whitecoat or marcite.
