    Fiberglass coping stone question

    I just finished pouring the bond beam on my diy install of fiberglass pool. I've searched everywhere on here about gluing/mortar for the paver coping. I have about 5 inch fiberglass lip and then plenty of concrete behind for adhesion for a 12inch cast coping stone. I'd like to use glue to install these after I roughen up the fiberglass surface. What brand/type of glue ? Pl400 is what I was leaning towards

    Still trying to figure out how to post pictures

    I can't help with the glue question but using a photo hosting site like photobucket.com is the easiest way to post pictures.

    Have you tried linking your photos from Photobucket? That's what many of us do here on TFP. Upload your pics to Photobucket (free), then copy & paste the IMG code for that pic from Photobucket to your TFP post. Works great.

    I have not personally, but most of the PB's I've spoken to about coping around a fiberglass pool all say they use construction adhesive to bond the paver to the pool AND the concrete.

    Re: Fiberglass coping stone question

    I did my own DIY fiberglass install as well and put down cantilevered flagstone. I did my coping similar to yours where it was flush with the fiberglass bond beam. I used mortar to hold mine down. I mortared right over the fiberglass bond beam and onto the cement. I did use a bonding agent on the flagstone and on the cement/pool as well. Has held down for a few year just fine. No issues.
