Will saltwater harm honed sandstone coping tiles in any way?

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.

Where can you find fiberglass or plastic pool coping to cantilever over your existing aluminum coping?

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

Can the PVC coping be replaced with new PVC coping on an inground pool built in the mid 70's?

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
