How to install paver coping on a fiberglass pool
As part of our Tundra Loc/ The River Pools Way of best practices for installation of fiberglass pools, We start out the installation of paver coping with a 12" thick by 12" wide beam of concrete. This locks the pool coping and concrete together creating a thick strong base for the pavers to attach.
In these photos we show how pavers are installed on a fiberglass pool with automatic pool cover. The concrete beam/collar is poured flush with the top of the automatic pool cover encapsulation creating a solid and flat surface to adhere the pavers too.
After the concrete is formed and poured it is alowed to cure then the pavers are adhered to the concrete with a strong construction adhesive such as liquid nails,etc.
On this pool we did a dry joint which means that there is not mortar between individual coping stones. This gives a more modern look to the pool coping.
