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?
Bash the old stuff of level it and re cement the new coping on top of the old work.
I have little holes in my inground pool coping how do I fix it caulk?
Remove decking material (concrete, tile, etc....) then the coping is screwed to the pool backing.
I share the same problem. I had a new liner installed, but the coping in cracked and need to be replaced.
Any pool supply store should be able to help you find coping and plaster. While they may not carry it in the store, they will most likely be able to direct you to a distributor, or set up a delivery for you.
That would be a pool company.. Now there are dozens of coping styles and sizes, so take one of the old one with you..
For Dad, jogging is a healthy coping strategy for dealing with the stress of his job. Eating is a poor coping strategy because it just makes me fat. A big part of the alcohol treatment program is replacing drinking with healthy coping strategies.
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.
Yes. Replace the existing coping with a horizontal aluminum liner receiver track by either Cardinal or Cinderella. These tracks are very small in height so you can run either your concrete or wood/composite deck over them. See the HM-1 or HM-2 at http://Coping.CinderellaInc.com Purchase it at: www.poolpartsandsupplies.com and look under "INGROUND POOLS" and then subheading "ALUMINUM LINER TRACK" or "ALUMINUM LINER TRACK BY CARDINAL" http://www.poolpartsandsupplies.com/sectionsxx.mv OR GO TO www.libertypool.com http://www.libertypool.com/xq/asp/Section.In%2DGround+Pools/qx/Section_Headings.htm
Replace the tiles. Makes it easier to clean the water line. Stains and oils will be permanent if you don't. k
Pool coping can only be replaced by cutting the concrete at least a foot back from the coping and busting that section out. If it were me, I wouldn't replace it with PVC, I would go with aluminum. Because of this, a new liner will most likely be needed. My pool was built in '74. The liner needs to be replaced and the coping looks awful. I have been told by 2 pool repair men that the concrete will have to be "busted up" and also replaced. I was told "Liner Lock" is used to hold the new liner onto the old coping and it should last until the liner needs to be replaced again. So, I asked if there was something out there to cover the coping since it looked so bad. One of them says he will check into it for me but I have not heard back yet. I AM IN THE SAME SITUATION WITH A 30 YEAR OLOD POOL. I AM ONLY LOOKING TO PURCHASE THE 4 ALUMINUM CORNERS IF SOMEONE DECIDES TO GET RID OF THEM TO ADD NEWER COPING PLEASE CONTACT ME AT WGJ48@AOL.COM.
