    New Pool owner with a somewhat simple question

    Hello everyone. I just installed a 12x18 above ground pool and built a deck around the entire pool 1/2" below the lip. The skimmer is about an inch or so below the bottom of the deck. My question is what do you suggest I use as a top plate on top of the deck to cover the soon to be hole I will cut for skimmer basket access? The deck is a brown color. Thank you
