Coping With Coping

Swimming pool equipment help: Coping is what you use to top the edge of the swimming pool (it looks like a mini-sidewalk that surrounds the pool). Coping can be made from all kinds of materials like (usually stone or concrete). People usually think of the coping as pool decoration and not really pool equipment, however, it actually does serve a purpose. Coping has a non-skid surface to prevent slippage accidents on the edge of the pool.

*When designing your swimming pool, make sure the coping is at a slight angle, tilted away from the pool. This is done to keep splashed water or dirty rain from flowing back into the pool.
