Pool coping is the structure that goes around the edge of the swimming pool. It’s the barrier between the pool and the deck, keeping pool water in the pool and incidental runoff out of the pool and diverted into deck drains. Often it helps create a non-skid surface along the edge of the pool to help with safety, as well as a handhold for swimmers in the pool. Coping generally comes in several varieties. There are many options for pool coping. Usually, decisions in style and material will depend on the overall design of the pool and deck and the effect and use of the pool itself. If you have any questions about your own pool’s coping, especially if you’re looking to redesign or repair it, or even if you’re building new, be sure to contact the Pacific Cast Stone Design Services today.
