Thread: Sealing the tile to the coping

    Sealing the tile to the coping

    First time posting.

    Was directed to this site from the garage journal.

    We have an in ground concrete SWG pool. The seal between the top tiles and the coping brick is broken (even missing completely in some areas). It LOOKS like the builder just used mortar first time around. It may have had a flex agent, but does not feel like it when I break a small piece out.

    Of course, because of slight movement, the mortar won't stay sealed. I am going to dig out all of the old and reseal it.

    What is the best product to use on this? I want something that comes in a caulking tube. I need to get this done before the weather (and the water) get cold.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to TFP! I saw your post over there this morning and wondered if I'd see you here.

    I can't answer your question, but somebody will.

    Polyurethane caulk is a bit difficult to work with (tape off both sides of the joint then drag it smooth with a putty knife) but it is the most durable.
