Gunite Vs. Pool Plaster

Both materials are commonly used in the construction of swimming pools, but they differ in their composition and application process.

Pool plaster is a finish layer applied over a concrete or gunite shell, while gunite is the structural shell itself. While both materials are durable and long-lasting, gunite is generally considered stronger and more versatile, allowing for more complex pool shapes and designs. Pool plaster, on the other hand, is more affordable and can provide a smooth, attractive finish for any type of pool.

Pool Plaster

Pool plaster is a mixture of cement, water, and marble dust or silica sand. It is typically applied as a finish layer over a concrete or gunite shell. The plaster is troweled onto the pool walls and floor, and then smoothed and polished to create a smooth, waterproof surface.


Gunite, on the other hand, is a mixture of cement and sand that is applied using a high-pressure spray nozzle. The mixture is sprayed onto a steel or concrete frame that has been shaped to the desired pool shape. Once the gunite has been applied, it is typically smoothed and shaped by hand to create the final pool shape. After the gunite has cured, a plaster finish can be applied.
