Should you replace the coping while you are replacing the liner in your inground pool if the white on the coping gets on your skin?

I replaced the liner and kept the old coping. Now, five years later, the coping is failing. It has cracks and splits and looks terrible. If I had it to do all over again, I would have replaced the coping. There were signs of deterioration that I had ignored. The small seam covers had mostly broken off. Blaming the kids, I got some replacements from the company that had installed the pool originally. The lasted on season. Your coping may be failing. Why take the chance?

Unless it is in a place where you can glue it and it will not be noticable I would try to replace it. If you have the piece you can use a plastic welder to repair it.
