Frozen it's cold...and about that gunite...

45 degree day time temps, dipping into the upper 20's at night here in Michigan.

As far as I know, they're shooting gunite tomorrow.

Is this safe? Can't find a thing online about temperature standards for gunite.

Also, what if it sprinkles rain tomorrow, will they/should they still shoot?

Although I'm not afraid to ask my pool builder these questions, I'd rather get the low-down from all of you first to make sure I'm calling him for a reason. I hope he appreciates that. ;-)

Thanks everyone. *I* appreciate *you*. I'll post pictures this weekend of our build.

Hi there, GOOD QUESTION!!! I was thinking the same thing b/c we're having similar weather here in Boston. We woke this morning to serious frost in the yard. So sad. Anyway, our pool builder assured us that they can do the gunite up until December and that it's the plaster that needs a warmer temperature. That said, I sure wish it'd warm up, we're still waiting on our permit and I'm really anxious that the timing won't work out. Good luck!!!
