You have often heard the term ‘Pool copings’ while discussing pool designs, or the architecture during its construction. In simple words, Pool Coping is the cover or cap of the pool’s edge. It is basically the first set of tiles or pavers that encircles the pool.
- The most important reason to install pool coping is the non-slip property it holds. It provides a safe and sturdy way to enter and exit the pool without slipping. Copings therefore ensure swimmers’ safety.
- Coping is mounted on the bond beam to cover the concrete edges and conceal the steel rods of the pool’s walls. Hence, they act like an attractive cover and add to the aesthetics of puddles.
- Another important benefit of Coping is it blocks the water from penetrating the area behind the pool shell. This helps diminish the chances of damage to the pool. Additionally, they keep dirt, grass, or debris from entering the water, keeping the pool clean and usable.
To uphold non-slip coping, generally Travertine, Limestone, Granite and Sandstone are used. Marble is predominantly used in indoor swimming pools.
You need not fret over cleaning pool copings because the high-quality natural stones are self-sustaining in nature. However, in case of stains, you can pressure clean them or apply a diluted bleach solution to get rid of blemishes.
