    Shell All 1 Pour or 2 Stages??

    Hey everyone, Pool builder swears by pouring the bottom one day then the walls the following day to get rid of Gunite rebound... Does this make sense? I’ve always thought monolithic pours with concrete, etc was always best Wouldn’t that be a giant cold joint around the walls/bottom?
