I purchased our house earlier this month and now have a pool.
It has missing or decaying mastic between the coping and the concrete skirt, perhaps a 12" or deeper in spots. I hope I am using the right terms; this is where the mastic has decayed away. The interior of the pool looks good, if currently green. So, should I start by pouring sand into these cracks, or some foam thing? I was thinking sand and then filling the last inch with some sort of mastic. I'll need to replace the screeds as well.
Any advice would be helpful. Is this a "pay the nice pool man about $600 to fix it"? Or is this a weekend's project.
