I have little holes in my inground pool coping how do I fix it caulk?
It will eat / disfigure the coping and will then turn that into dust that gets in your pool and discolors the plaster.
Remove decking material (concrete, tile, etc....) then the coping is screwed to the pool backing.
What about "pool coping installation" ??????
what is pool coping
Galvanized steel. It lasts longer and is less affected by chemicals and saltwater if you choose to go that route. I do suggest saltwater. It needs for less maintance than a pure chlorine pool.
Aluminum is a better material. It will not rust like a steel resin pool. It can also be recycled when the pool is no longer usable.
They are one and the same. THEY BOTH ARE CHLORINE POOLS!!!
Chloraminated pools are saltwater.
It really doesn't matter. The amount of salt in proportion to the volume of water is almost insignificant. Less than that of a human teardrop. Enjoy your pool.
Yes a saltwater pool would be best for you. If you're allergic to cholrine than you certainly wouldn't want to swim in it!
Firstly, you should only have water that is treated with salt - not 'saltwater'. Pool water will always leave deposits in the pool and the surrounding area. If the coping is correctly sealed with a high quality stone sealer it will be fine if it's kept clean and deposits are hosed and bushed off on a regular basis. I'd also suggest sealing the sandstone coping a couple of times a year.
Rustoleum usually works well. Make sure surface is degreased first.
It depends on the pool make. The only one I know of that offers a plastic "coping cover" is Pacific Pools, now owned by Latham Plastics in Latham, NY and it is only for their older "Garden Pools". Your aluminum coping can easily be reconditioned with an epoxy spray paint from the hardware store. If there are defects, fill them with a two-part epoxy putty and sand it to blend with the rest of the coping before painting. Mask the coping off with painter's tape to keep from painting the deck or liner. Hank4pools@aol.com
No, a saltwater pool does not need to be covered.
You can heat a saltwater pool. Options for heating your saltwater pool include solar heating, electric heating, and gas heating.
Yes, make sure the coping is clean and sound, then apply an oil based primer, followed by your oil based top coat.
Many people will say that saltwater systems are as good for your pool as chlorinated systems. Saltwater systems are not as harsh on your pool system or for the people that enjoy the pool itself.
salt water pools don't use chlorine salts, they are bromine salts. So yes, saltwater pool are better for you.
If you can find out who made the pool in the first place you may be able to track down the manufacturer.

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. THANKS, BILL
Nothing, the coping should slope back away from the pool
Yes, it's easy! Just add a saltwater chlorinator between the filter pump and the pool intlet. Then add pool salt. Follow the directions in the manual and you will be swimming in your saltwater pool in 24 hours.
