    Coping Replacement

    I've got a concrete decking, brick coping, and older pebbletech. The pebbltech and tile are in good condition. I'm going to replace the decking with pavers and coping with a precast concrete. My contractor stated that if we repalce the coping, he would have to replace the tile and pebbletech as well.

    I know every pool is different, but is it possible to replace the coping without replacing the tile/pebbletech? Thx

    I have no idea but I WOULD talk to at least 3 others to get their thoughts on it.

    Good luck!

    Re: Coping Replacement

    I recently got quotes to have JUST the coping replaced in S.E. PA and the pool guys were willing to do it. The thing is my plaster probably only has a few years left and I would be running into salvaging the coping while replacing the tile / surface down the road. I do not know the lifespan of pebbletech, but it may be worth biting the bullet and doing a complete rehab... Long story short, I had a knowledgeable mason come in, carefully remove the coping (he had to level out the bond beam in a few spots) and replace it with new.

    We were basically told the same thing. We wanted to go in and do coping after and redon on our pool and we were told they wouldn't be able to guarantee the tile and pebble would be ok and advised us not to risk it.
