't J i Ml Steel Plus Gunite Equal Strong Pools Modern pool construction is a far cry from that of a number of years ago. Nowadays a new type of construction has replaced the former concrete walls and floors which required enamels and other water sealers. Swimming pools of today are for the most part constructed of a heavy network of reinforced steel bars varying from %-irich-to-i/i-inch in diameter. A heavy "gunite" cement is then applied to the sides and bottoms under high pressure. The gunite is sprayed from 4 to 9 inches in thickness and the resultant construction is so strong it would hold the enormous weight of the water if it could be lifted out of the ground. The gunite surface is plastered to a'marble smooth .surface and the interior never requires paints or enamels. A six-inch thick 12-inch wide beam reinforces the pool at right which is being constructed by a Tucson firm. The piping is all plastic, tested for 300 pounds pressure.
