So I recently bought a house that has an inground Heldor pool built in the 80's and needs some work. From what I understand, a few years ago, a large branch from a tree fell onto the corner of the pool and broke the aluminum coping (and bent the top of the wall a bit) and the concrete around it. The previous home owners tore up the surrounding concrete, threw the broken coping away and just left the pool as-is. My wife and I want to fix it to enjoy the pool. It also needs a new liner, but I have to replace the broken coping and concrete.
Problem is, I cannot find matching coping anywhere. I have asked a local pool guy and he tells me that it is a Heldor universal coping that isn't made anymore. He gave me a sample of Cinderella CP-8 deck mount coping to see if it would fit. Its the right shape, but the height and width are off a few inches (see pics). I can put in the Cinderella product, but it doesn't match and I'll have a trip hazard in that corner. I'd really hate to have to replace all the pool coping because that would be very expensive (cutting all the concrete, replacing all the coping and pouring new concrete).
I'm hoping someone can help me find an exact match. I've been searching the Internet for days with no luck. If you or someone you know had this type of coping and has some left over from a re-do or just wants new coping and is looking to get rid of the old, please let me know! I'm willing to pay top dollar for a match.
This is a picture of the coping
The next 3 pictures are of the "replacement" Cinderella coping sitting next to the existing coping. As you can see, they have the same shape, but the height and width are way off...
