Gunite is a process of applying concrete to a structure. It is commonly used to build pools as well as bridges, tunnels and water tanks to name but a few.
Gunite comes in two basic forms...a dry gun and a wet gun..
The dry gun method uses a gunite rig in which sand and regular cement are mixed and compressed. This mixture is then blown through a hose where water is added at the tip of the hose and then blown into the walls and floor.

Chlorine generators produce chlorine by taking salt that is in the water and breaking up the two components sodium and chloride using electrolysis. In addition to this, the salt in the water gives it a smooth silky feeling on the skin. Because the chlorine generator produces chlorine, it doesn't contain the additional compounds found in granular or tablet chlorine.
Giving your pool a face lift can include the changing of the interior surface including the tile and plaster. In addition, you can change or add brick coping to your pool and breathe new life into your health investment.
