My pool builder used travertine pavers as pool coping. No problem, I like the look. All of the pavers are set on a sand base and the coping is adhered to the top beam of the pool with thin set. Looks good.
Problem I'm having is keeping sand out of the pool. Whenever it rains, the sand washes out of the joints between the coping pavers and right into the pool.
There is no grout in the paver joints or anything to keep the sand from washing into the pool.
Does anybody else have travertine coping and are your coping joints grouted to keep sand from washing into the pool?
Thanks in advance.
