Sadly I came to the relization that I did my pool projects backwards and am probably going to end up paying for it now, but my biggest head ache right now is the coping.
Long story short I had a guy doing concrete around my pool and after he removed the concrete some of the coping is broken.
My pool is older (so I've been told by the people I've called to get quotes so far) inground with a vinyl liner. I unfortunately just replaced the liner less than a year ago, and hope it can be saved but no one has given me the warm and fuzzy about that.
The coping around the pool is unique (Meaning old) because it is not just connected to the wall but one piece with the wall. I've been told by different companies they can't do it, it'll be costly, and they can't do it (of course none of them offer an alternative).
I have one guy who says he may be able to fix it, but being pool season I only get responses from him if I call ten times.
The questions I have:
1) Has anyone dealt with replacing coping that is one piece with the wall, how is it done? Is it as simple (used very loosely) as cutting off the coping on the top of the wall and replacing it with new, are there special pieces made for this?
2) There is no concrete right now, would it make more sense just to replace the whole wall with a more current style where they are two pieces?
3) Would it be smarter just to put in fiber glass shell and do away with the liner all together?
Any help would be appreciated, this "project" was started in late April and I really would like to get this going and done...
