At Gary Pools we exclusively use the Wet-Mix Shotcrete process when building our pools. The main difference is in how and where the concrete is mixed.
The Wet-Mix method uses the same ready-mix concrete process as is used for home foundations, roadwork, and most everything else. The concrete is mixed at the batch plant via a highly controlled process and delivered in via large ready-mix trucks.
The Dry-Mix is unusual in that the mixing is done on-site, by the nozzleman. He adjusted the mix based on his experience, no real-time measurements are made, and the process is without assurances.
This can be a little confusing because many local pool builders don’t know the difference and call everything Gunite!
Our pools last a lifetime, and we can only make that happen with consistency in our concrete, so we build with Wet-Mix Shotcrete.
