Can someone educate me on why there are no Gunite pools in the south. I live in Alabama and everything here is Vinyl, why is that???
I lived in JAX FL and had Gunite.

Funny, my Wild Guess would have been that 3/4 of all pools built in the south are gunite pools. They are in the area where I live anyway.

Cost is the factor in my area. You can get a similar size pool 25-50% less money going vinyl over gunite.
