I recently bought a home with a concrete pool with 9 inch red brick bullnose coping. It has always bothered me that the coping is slightly deteriorating on many of the bricks, chipping and breaking away at the "bullnose" part. I am looking to replace them so as to improve the aesthetics as well as safety since I have already cut my finger on a sharp edge. My questions are as follows:
Should I replace the coping with something very similar in material like a clay brick, or are there better options?
What kind of cost can I expect? The pool is 20x40 with the corners obviously cut.
Is it a fairly DIYable project to pop the old coping and install new? I am pretty hand, but not an expert.
Thank you all in advance!
