    Inground pool edging maintenance

    Hey jimmythegreek, thanks for suggestions. I'm not too much of a handy guy, so let's me try to rephrase so maybe you can confirm if I understand correctly. - User the fiberglass mat inside the crack to help contour the roundish shape of the coping - Apply the Bondo over it. * I lost you on...
