    Help With Deteriorating Thermoplastic Coping

    Need help / suggestions to replace thermoplastic coping

    I have in-ground, vinyl lined, 20 X 40 Trojan pool, ( i.e. now sold under name of Radiant Pools ).
    Sides are double walled aluminum. My problem is that bull nose thermoplastic coping continues
    to deteriorate, ( i.e. cracking chipping, stained etc.). The pool was installed by prior home
    owner in mid 70’s. During the past few years, I contacted pool retail and distributors for
    replacement coping. There was no inventory available. Then contacted Trojan Pools for
    availability of replacement parts. They indicated that this style was no longer available.
    See illustrations and photos attached. Please get back with replacement suggestions.
    Many Thanks, Toms_SEMass

    Looks like Buster Crabbe too. Try looking for that.

    Hey Scott,
    Thanks for the suggestion. Looked for Buster Crabbe coping online.
    Did not find enough information to determine if Buster Crabbe brand
    has a compatible replacement for my pool problem. Do you know
    of web site with specific details, ( i.e. dimensions and detailed
    photo of coping etc.)? Or a phone number to speak with someone?
    Many Thanks, Tom_SEMass

    B.C. pool kits are history too. They were overlap style in-ground liner pools, usually with wood walls. Stuff is out there though.

    All I can find now is the spacers that go between the sections.
