There are many places one can accquire inground pool covers. A couple of the places that one can purchase an inground pool cover is at Pleasure Pools and Backyard City Pools.
6 pieces of plywood will cover this area without a lot of piecing.
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
I just repaired my aluminum inground pool coping. The cause was not the same (jack hammer damage). I had damage from a tree falling into my pool and of course the aluminum coping was the recipient of the tree. The coping was severely bent, nearly upon itself at a couple of places. I got my auto body hammers and dollies out and basically did what any good auto body repair shop would have done and beat the coping back into shape. It's not perfect but certainly useable. The good news is that it didn't require re-painting. I removed the coping from my pool to make it easier to work on but I'm sure it could be repaired without remove. You've got to be patient and plan to spend quite a bit of time with the hammers and dollies. Over the years our aluminum coping was damaged from the straps of the winter cover. Due to high winds the straps dug deep grooves into the coping. We bought an epoxy filler made for outside use on metal at Home Depot for less than $5. After filling in the damaged areas, sanding, and painting, the coping looks like new. Thanks for your replies! We ended up using a hammer on the smaller dimples, then a grinder on the bigger ones. The low spots we filled with auto body putty, sanded the whole thing and repainted it. Looks great! Thanks again -
3.5 sheets to cover that.
3 pieces, one in each slit of the matzo cover
There are many options available for anyone looking to purchase a cover for their new inground pool or as a replacement for an existing cover. It’s important to weigh out the benefits and shortcomings of each type of cover before making the purchase. Not only should installation of the cover be considered, but also the winter maintenance necessities. Tarpaulin covers are the cheapest of inground pool covers, but will require quite a bit more work to put them on and maintain through the winter. These covers are held down and secured using water bags or flexible vinyl tubes filled with water. After the pool is closed, a pump must be used regularly to keep a safe amount of water on top of the cover. If a large amount of rainwater is allowed to accumulate on the cover, it has the potential to push down into the pool and tear the pool liner below. The safety cover, sometimes referred to as a loop lock cover, is made up of a canvass mesh material that prevents water from laying on the cover of a pool. While it allows water to freely pass through to the pool, it prevents debris from getting in. As a result, the initial pool cleaning is much easier once the pool is reopened. This type of inground pool cover is attached to the surrounding deck or patio with looped straps that hook onto thick screws. This keeps the cover secure enough to hold a very large amount of weight. Considering all of the benefits that safety covers offer, this type of inground pool cover is normally the most expensive option. Bead lock covers are only available from certain pools manufacturers, as they are sized to fit the exact shape of the pool. They float on the water and attach to the coping, above where the pool liner is locked into. This cover is also designed to bear a fair amount of weight for safety purposes, but it is not as secure as the safety cover. In addition, a pump will also be necessary through winter to keep the water level down on top of the cover.
