A LOT!

Gunnite is make by mixing cement, sand, and water in an approximate ratio of 1 part cement to 4-6 parts sand with 1 part water using a high pressure spraying mechanism. Please note that the major component in gunnite is SAND and not cement.

With this as a guideline, a 50 pound bag of cement would be mixed with at least 200 pounds of cement (approximate total mixture weight of 250 pounds).

Thus,it would require approximately 8 such mixtures to equal 2000 pounds (2000 divided by 250 = 8) and since there is one bag of cement per mixture, it would require around 8 bags or 400 pounds of cement.

Furthermore, one 250 pound mixture (containing one bag of cement) will cover approximately 5 square feet at a depth of 1 inch.

So, to build a pool of any decent size, you will need MANY TONS of gunnite.

Hope this helps ...
