Benefits of the Shotcrete Process

Basically a method of placing concrete, shotcrete is used to construct high strength swimming pools that have low permeability and high durability. Even though the hardened properties of a shotcrete pool are similar to those built from cast concrete, shotcrete offers additional benefits, including the potential to create a shell of just about any shape or size.

Shotcrete may be applied as a dry mix (sometimes called gunite) or a wet mix. Both processes have specific advantages that are determined by:

  • Access to the site
  • Availability of materials and equipment
  • Expertise and preference of the pool builder
  • Economics

As the American Shotcrete Association (ASA) indicates, both wet and dry processes are virtually interchangeable and the resultant properties including durability, compressive strength, and bond strength are similar.

Additionally, there are numerous benefits in terms of sustainability that relate directly to all kinds of savings that benefit Georgia Pools’ clients. The ASA lists the top sustainability advantages of shotcrete including:

  • Savings of between 50 and 100% in formwork versus conventional cast-in-place concrete construction.
  • Minimal, if any, formwork required for pools designed in complex shapes.
  • No need for formwork to be designed for internal pressures.
  • Increased construction speed savings of 33 to 50%.
  • Better bonding to the substrate increases and enhances durability.
  • Can be used in restricted spaces and areas that are difficult to reach.
  • Substantial savings, if not the elimination, of cranes and other equipment.

Shotcrete also offers sustainability advantages for repair work:

  • In repair applications, labor savings are at least 50%.
  • The speed with which repairs can be undertaken reduces or eliminate downtime.
  • The versatility of repairing surfaces that other processes simply can’t beat in terms of cost-effectiveness.

Ozone Pools by Georgia Pools

Whatever sort of pool you choose, the most important thing is to keep the water clear and sparkling clean. The traditional method used to keep pool water clean is with chemicals, specifically chlorine. An alternative is a saltwater system. But, today, an increasing number of pool owners are opting for ozone pools instead. Here’s why:

  • Ozone pools minimize the need to add chemicals to your swimming pool.
    • Ozone becomes your pool’s primary oxidizer and disinfectant, reducing the amount of chlorine or bromine needed to keep the water clean, clear, and healthy.
    • When used with sodium bromide, ozone has the ability to regenerate the used bromide which can reduce the use of chemicals by up to 60%.
  • Ozone is a better disinfectant than other systems, particularly when it comes to destroying bacteria.
  • Ozone products improve the quality of pool water significantly via a process called micro-flocculation. This forces organic contaminants to congregate, making it easier for the ozone-resistant sand filter to remove them.
  • Ozone pools are more comfortable to swim in because there is no strong residual chlorine smell and the ozone doesn’t irritate eyes or skin.
