Functions of Coping
Coping is the pool’s shell and the waterproof barrier between the water and the ground. Although sometimes covered completely by tile, coping is often left exposed in pools and makes up the rough, sandy surface that swimmers feel under their feet at the deep end of the pool. Coping comes in several styles that determine the size and shape of your pool.
Types of Coping
This barrier is often made of concrete, but can also be made from natural stones such as limestone, slate, sandstone, clay, granite, travertine, flagstone and bluestone. Because coping is often also part of the pool deck and exposed under the water, it can be treated to resemble terracotta, charcoal, caramel or several other colors.
