    Weeping Gunite

    Our gunite was poured for our second pool build 9/24/16. It still has some places where it's weeping and it looks like it has calcium build up. I'm not an expert, but should something be done about this? Wouldn't this weeping affect the plaster once they put it on top? Picture attached. You can see what I'm referring to across from the coping, mid way down on the bench. Please advise.pool pic 1.jpg

    Re: Weeping Gunite

    I was a bit concerened about some spots in my pool, but, it slowly but surely went away and stopped (quickly once we stopped watering). Check out my build thread... gunite happened... oh... maybe page 4 or so. I took a photo similar to yours with weeping... yours isn't too much 'worse' than mine.
