It depends on the pool and it's age. For most pools it is an easy job to replace your coping. However, for some pools it is impossible to get replacement parts because they are so old and the companies no longer exist. Some pool companies have resources where custom pool coping can be designed and manufactured, but it's costly and you need to be very specific.

Can you replace coping on vinyl liner pool with stone?

Afraid not. Vinyl liner pools are built using "concrete receptor coping" into which the deck is poured. It also contains the "bead receptor" that the vinyl liner attaches to. Actually YES it can. You would want to do this during a liner replacement but it can be done. You would have to remove the concrete from around the perimeter of the pool, remove/ replace the "concrete receptor coping" with bead receiver, aluminum extrusion, form/pour a bond beam, then lay your stone. Not really an easy do it yourself job but it can be done.

After all he knows the swimming pool electrical codes, what to look for , when to replace or refurbish, what to test, how to test and which GFCI works with the system. You will need a GFCI on your light if you do not currently have one. It matters none that you are JUST replacing the bulb - the code calls for upgrading/updating the entire system. Do yourself a favor and let a professional do this job. Electricity and water do not mix well.
