POOL COPING: CLEANING, SEALING & POOL DECK MAINTENANCE

What is Pool Coping?

If you weren’t sure what the decking surrounding the perimeter of your pool was called, it is called coping. Coping is an important part of any in-ground pool, but it takes a beating from constant exposure to water, salt, and/or harsh chemicals. A pool coping is the edge of the pool surrounding the perimeter and sealing your pool’s coping especially here in Texas’ climate is an essential part of any pool construction and maintenance.

Seal Pool Coping with Slip-Resistant Sealant for Safety

A pool coping (aka pool decking) serves as a stepping off point, a surface people use to pull themselves out of the swimming pool, and a handle for novice swimmers. Pool coping sealer needs to address obvious safety concerns like providing non-slip resistance without being so rough as to scratch or scrape swimmers. For that reason, we recommend using a grit sealant additive like TSS SG-100 to prevent slip hazards around pool copings and other we areas surrounding fountains, waterfalls, and hot tubs.

Protecting Your Pool Coping with a Thorough Clean & Durable Sealant Application

Maintaining the look and beauty of the stone on your pool coping is a big deal, because replacing it is a huge expense. Pool copings endure a relentless beating from either saltwater, chlorine, or both. We have the perfect pool coping sealer and cleaning solutions for whatever stone or concrete surface used to build your pool coping.

Pool coping can be made with a wide range of materials, each of which require different sealants in order to achieve professional results. Understanding the purpose of pool coping and the various ways to implement coping for your pool will help you determine the right pool coping sealing and cleaning solution for your Texas pool.

The Purpose of Pool Coping

While professionally sealed pool coping is designed to make a pool look aesthetically pleasing, it also provides essential protection for your pool. Professional coping shields your deck from water damage, lengthening the life of the deck.

Most importantly, the pool deck is safer when pool coping is implemented since coping causes water splashes to flow into deck drains. If you have young families or use the pool area for parties, the non-skid surface that results will make the pool safer for diving into the pool and overall pool use.

Additional safety features can be implemented with a clever pool coping solution. For example, pool coping with built-in handholds will help swimmers exit a pool safely or relax with a comfortable resting spot when needed.

That is why it is so important that you keep a clean pool coping. A heavy grade sealant that can endure the elements and harsh chemicals that a pool coping sustains is essential.

Types of Pool Coping

As mentioned, pool coping can be made from a wide variety of materials, including the following:

Any of these solutions can be implemented with various size and texture specifications, ensuring that you can create the perfect aesthetic for your pool area’s coping.

Ideal Sealants for the Coping Material Used

The best pool coping sealant for a pool in Texas’ climate will depend on the coping material that you used. For example, a porous concrete coping material could do well with a standard acrylic sealant, whereas a porous natural stone coping would require saltwater resistant sealer for limestone and sandstone that are specifically designed for the vulnerability of this coping type. In effect, your sealant choice will be a direct reflection of the coping material chosen.

An additional sealant choice to consider is whether you want to create a wet look for your pool coping. If so, you will want to choose a sealant with a high-gloss or medium-gloss sheen. Acrylic sealants usually come in a wide range of sheen levels, making them a great choice for concrete coping.

Many homeowners opt for salt water pools instead of the more common chlorine pool. These salt water pools provide outstanding health benefits since these pools use fewer chemicals than traditional chlorine pools.

However, when opting for a salt water pool, you need to choose the coping and sealant solution carefully. Stone copings are usually the best choice since it will not deteriorate as rapidly as other coping materials such as wood or concrete. Patios and walking areas surrounding the pool also work best with stone materials.

Salt water resistant sealing stones are the best choice of sealant for a salt water pool since they are designed to provide effective and long-lasting protection for salt water pools.

Other natural stones, like flagstone, are porous, meaning that they will be exposed to chlorine, salt water and any outdoor elements. All of these add up to reducing longevity if a sealant is not used. For porous stones, sealants that fill in the pores while providing an attractive matte finish are an ideal choice.
