Have you been thinking about installing your own pool after maybe swimming in your neighbors pool but would like to make some changes? If you were in a vinyl liner pool, maybe you did not like the white walk in step or the white coping around the perimeter of the pool.
With technology today, you can use a step and coping that does not have to be white. Let’s discuss the step first. For the entry way into your pool, you could add a step that would fit into one of the two shallow end corners and would be covered by your liner. The step would blend in with your liner pattern. You can even have a step made that will fit the width of your pool and be covered with your liner pattern.
The top of this entry way step, you could have a lounger area (water maybe 4” deep). From this lounger area, you would then walk down the steps into your pool. This entry way step and lounger area would be covered with a liner. No where would a white step be visible. You could even add a bench in the deep end to sit on which would be covered by your liner pattern.
Around the edge of your pool, you could use side mount coping and then have brick or stone installed around the pool edge. If you want to do a cantilever type
coping, you could use top mount coping. The use of either one of these two types of coping would eliminate the white edge look around your pool.
