    should I worry for this crack in gunite?

    should I be worried about these cracks in new gunite shell?

    Thanks zea3, are hairline cracks one is at the floor and is about 4 ft long. The one that worries me most is the one going from the top of the beam down, is very little hairline but water takes longer to dry. Here are some pics.
