    Serious coping problems...need advice!

    I have a 18x38 IG pool with auto cover that has been broke for years ( before I bought house) . Coping is severely damages the entire perimeter of pool, I "think" due to 5 years drought, earthquakes, and auto cover tracking/poor installation. Question is:

    1)should I repair now or wait till season is over?
    2) best way to replace and what material?

    Zoom in to see the horrible cracking and parts are actually falling

    I would wait until after the season for several reasons:

    -it is holding water so can still be used!

    -Gives you time to shop and get quotes

    -it will be their slow season so may get a better price

    Good luck and let us know what you find out and decide!
