Why You Should Use Ready-Mix Concrete for Your Swimming Pool Project

Ready-Mix Concrete is a trusted solution for property owners looking to install an in-ground pool. Not only are concrete swimming pools reliable and durable, but they are also customizable, offering design flexibility to achieve any aesthetic. With proper installation and care, concrete pool shells and pool decks can last a lifetime.

Long-Lasting Durability

The inherent durability of concrete makes it a reliable and effective shell material in Florida, where subtropical weather conditions can reduce the service life of other materials. Concrete withstands heavy wear and resists stains and scratches to preserve the pool’s appearance. A properly maintained concrete pool can last at least 50 years and increase property value.

Structural Benefits

Concrete pools are constructed using shotcrete, a method of applying concrete projected at high velocity to form vertical or curved surfaces with high compressive strength. Shotcrete is used for pool installations because it creates a dense surface with low porosity and permeability.

Design Flexibility

Concrete pools are customizable and offer a variety of shapes, sizes, and depths, achieving almost any aesthetic. Ready-mix concrete is compatible with tile, concrete pavers, and a variety of pool deck materials. The use of shotcrete allows for variable depths, tight radiuses, and built-in seats and steps. For enhanced ambiance and safety, lighting may also be installed in the pool shell.
