A swimming pool’s coping provides a comfortable resting place for swimmers and is the decorative concrete or stone used to cap the pool shell wall. Its main purpose is to separate the decking from the pool structure, this ensures, if the decking shifts over time, the pool surface or tile work won’t be affected.
Coping Repair and Replacement
As the ground settles, minor shifts can sometimes cause the pool coping to develop cracks in the joints or the coping itself. It’s imperative to repair the coping as soon as problems occur, so water doesn’t get behind the pool’s walls and into the soil supporting the pool. If the soil gets wet, it is more likely to shift and cause serious damage to the pool’s structure.
