Our concrete decking was put in with the pool install and the installer put on a 'kool-deck' type product. Charged $2/sq ft extra. It was still too hat to stand on in the middle of summer. He has repainted it to a light tan which I don't really caree for but made it a little more tolerable. still very hot for the little ones to walk on. The coping is travertine and stays fairly cool. At least tolerable. We have ZERO shade aroundthe pool all day, except for umbrellas. Any ideas on cooling the decking? Do you think the coating was not really a kooldeck but just a texture?
