    Coping crack need repair?

    When they built my pool last year they were landscaping and the bobcat ran into the deck. It cracked the perimeter a little so they came out and patched it up. I just noticed that in the location of the incident there is a hairline crack across the deck. It appears to be through the full thickness but doesn't involve the pool shell. Does this need to be addressed, sealed or repaired? Here are some pics. The first 3 pics are for perspective as I pan into the hairline crack.

    Re: Deck crack need repair?

    Is that deck or coping where the crack is? If the crack does not extend into the pool, it would seem safe to leave. I do not know how this would be fixed cosmittically.

    Sorry,

    Oops...yes coping. Cosmetically you really can't see it unless you look for it. I was actually kinda concerned that with the freeze/thaw cycles we have here in the midwest that if I didn't seal it or something that it might erode or crack worse
