In Austin, TX: Does a faux negative edge count towards pool coping (I.C.?)

We are building a new pool, but have limited available impervious coverage. Does a faux negative edge on one side of a pool count as pool coping? We aren't sure about City of Austin rules on this time of edge.

Hi! That is a VERY interesting question! That could make or break a pool build.

I would not go by what anyone says unless they had a title by their name for your part of the world. I would start calling your inspection department until I found someone that would be wiling to put it in writing with their signature on it.

When you find your answer PLEASE share it here so we can all learn from it.

I would LOVE to see your plans!
