Shotcrete is the preferred method of concrete placement for over 90% of pools. The process gives the builder flexibility to pneumatically direct concrete to any position, including overhead, while densifying and strengthening the concrete through high-velocity compaction. This module uses the foundation established by the ACI and ASA standards as well as several years of hands-on experience by the instructor to give a thorough presentation of the shotcrete process.
