I am building a new inground pool, approx 18 x 36, vinyl liner. I am going to have the concrete guys poor a 12x36 deck on the north side of the pool for lounging, sun bathing, etc. Then around the rest of the pool a narrow 3 foot walk way.
The concrete is going to be poured right up to the aluminum cp2 coping.
Do I need anything more than the normal concrete expansion joints in the concrete (i.e. a normal sidewalk joints)? I was thinking I needed an expansion joint around the entire parameter of the pool, 18" in or so from the coping? I would prefer it not be there, but I through I read somewhere it was needed, but that might only be if a true coping (like limestone, quartz, etc) is being used.
