The coping is formed up as you can see in the pictures with a 2" canteleiver and is 3.5" thick. Once the concrete is set up it gets a heavy scrubbing with a broom and sponges to expose the aggregate and provide some texture.Matt,
Please tell me more about your poured coping... I am only familiar with "installed" coping, like flagstone, brick, etc...
Later in life, when you decide to upgrade your pool, you will often replace the coping with something newer or different.
Can you do the same for your poured coping or does it just last forever?
I like it, just don't know anything about it...
Down the road if you choose to change the coping it would be no different than removing brick or stone but you'd have to replace it with something that's equally as thick. This style of coping is very popular here and I think it's somewhat of a timeless look that hopefully will not need replacing.
