Considering that the initial process are done like the excavation, rebar cutting and installation and laying out of plumbing system, spraying gunite is up next.
Depending on the area, it usually take at least 3 days up to a week to finish spraying gunite. During the spraying gunite, the consistency of thickness should be considered and must be done layer over layer to achieve the right thickness.
It takes at least four weeks for the gunite to cure. Allow the concrete to properly bond together, be hydrated and achieve the designed compressive strength to be able to support the load of the pool. To properly moisten the gunite during its curing period, use a water hose or a water nozzle.
It is recommended that during the water spraying, you should start at the shallow end portion of your structure, example the pool, working your way to the end portion of the structure. To know how long you need to spray water, the color of concrete should be your indication whether it needs to be watered more or not. Avoid walking into the gunite surface unless cured.
After it has cured, the plastering, tiling works and other process will begin to finish the pool job.
