    tcats coping cracks

    Here's my cracks in the coping (not ground movement, since pool has no cracks). I do expect this sort of thing in concrete, I was just wondering if there is a way to visually hide the cracks that looks good (paint?)

    Re: 3 month old pool should I have cracks in deck

    You could fill the cracks and them paint but over time these cracks could re appear and then you just do the same thing over again. If it were me, I'd leave it like it is. I don't think it looks that bad.

    My thinking too, who's going to notice the cracks:
    IG pebble, 15,000 gallon
    48 PentAir DE Filter with backwash valve
    PentAir Whisperflo pump with 1hp 2-speed motor
    Aquabot 4WD, Poolskim
