Pool coping helps to protect your pool and complete its overall look. It helps to connect your pool deck with the pool wall, making everything appear cohesive. And, it prevents water from getting into your pool wall. So, if it is damaged, it can create many issues.

Here is how you can spot any pool coping damage.


If You Notice the Coping Is Loose

Have you ever relaxed in your pool and hung onto the edges? Or instead of using the stairs have you used your arms to lift yourself out along the pool walls? Well, your pool coping is what makes that possible. But, sometimes it can become loose and if that happens, it can be a hazard. If you notice that it is loose, make sure you get it replaced as soon as possible.


Cracked Materials

Since your pool coping is a part of both your pool and deck, it needs to be intact at all times. If it becomes cracked, you risk damages to both your pool and deck. Concrete coping tends to be the easiest material to notice cracks in. And, if you don’t see the cracks, it can become easy for debris to get stuck and make the cracks bigger. Try to take some time when you are cleaning or checking on your pool to inspect surrounding coping.


Crumbling Materials

Similarly to cracked materials, you may find some debris from your pool coping laying around. This can be because of the age of the pool or because the material cannot withstand hot temperatures. When your pool coping begins to crumble, it means that your pool coping is beginning to fall apart. So, it is best to get it looked at sooner than later.
