    Pool cove help

    We just got a new (used) pool and I am ordering the parts I need. A liner and cove is on my list but I want to make sure I am ordering the right things
    Anu pics of cove I see being attached are on a pool with a straight metal bottom ring. My pool is resin and the bottom ring has a flare to it. Will the peel and stick cove work right with my pool?

    The cove we got had the bottom corner notched out and the peel and stick was at the top wall side (or wall foam in our case). It was VERY sticky so go slow. Also get the seems tight together as you go around.

    Re: Pool cove help

    Got my cove in the mail. Here is a pic of what I am questioning. You can see that if placed at the ground, there is about an inch of space where it would need to meet the wall. If I hold it up to where it should attavh to the wall, it does not hit the floor. So what is the best solution for this?PhotoGrid_1471284024696.jpg

    Re: Pool cove help

    Rock and hard place for sure..............I am thinking you are going to have do some dirt/sand work............Put the cove ON the wall so it seals as best it can THEN use the sand to fill in UNDER the cove and UP the cove.

    Your goal is to STOP the liner from having any place it can get out of of the pool.

    Play around and see if you can push the cove so it fits on that piece with the cut out and if you can push the top of the cover against the wall AND it say that way with some pressure.

    You are going to have to play around with it to see what works best. I wish I were there to help you figure it out.

    Re: Pool cove help

    Thanks kimkats, putting the cove on the wall and pushing sand up against and under it may be the best option I have. The next problem I run into then, is how to make a floor pad work with that set up.

    Re: Pool cove help

    When you floor pad what are you talking about? Gorilla pad, tarp, foam pad, ?????

    Oh!! if you are using foam.......you would not need as much if ANY sand to fill in the area under the cove!!!!

    If you are using gorilla pad or tarp hummmmm trying to think it through.......pad over the cove with sand filling in area under the cove to keep the liner from pushing under. Using spray adhesive to hold it there. It might take some fancy cutting to make sure it does not bunch up or over lap. The over lap would show the liner some.

    Let me know what you are using.

    Re: Pool cove help

    I plan to use foam. This is what I plan on using. I know someone who does autobody work and gets loads of this and he loves wjen someone is able to reuse/recycle it

    That is NICE stuff! Going to feel great on your feet and help hide any boo-boos on the floor.

    Okay with it being that thicker I would not run it up the wall. It will show under the liner.

    I would put it under the cove on top of the sand if possible. How much of a gap will be left under the cove with this foam?

    Re: Pool cove help

    Me, I would put sand, then that green padding, and then if my cove still did not fit over my track, I would cut the cove to fit. You *could* do it with a utility knife, but I would just run it through a band saw and take off enough on the back corner to make it fit. A hacksaw blade (held in your hand, not in a hacksaw frame) would also make quick work of it. Not as fast as a band saw, but faster than a utility knife.
