27 Aug 2008 I finally finished my deck. I left a decent gap between the top rail & the deck so I could get my winter cover on (1.5" maybe). As I'm looking at it , I can't help but think that somebody might catch thier toe in it. I thought I saw a pool catalog once that had something that was in tee configuration that would fill that gap. Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but has anyone else seen this? Bob. 30' AG Round, Sand filter, Sta-Rite Aquatools 2HP pump, 4G LQ
The expansion joint should be "True", that is, extend between the deck and the coping stone, all the way to the earth. 2. If the joint is very uneven in width, you can slice the backer rod with a razor knife to fill in the gaps, or buy more than one size of backer rod. The rod must fit tightly, as shown in the diagram. Self-leveling caulk can be very runny, especially on a warm day, and you will lose a great deal of caulk that will run down into the joint. If you have a new pool, and there is a strip of
4 Oct 2014 How to re-caulk a inground pool deck. Removing the old caulk, I used a 5-1 painters knife. The backer rod/ caulk saver foam was from Lowes (in the weather strip area) and the size I used was 5/8" (will vary based on crack size) . The caulk also came from Lowes in the concrete section. Some small areas did leak through causing a hole or gap. the next day I skimmed a little latex caulk over the hole then after it dried added another coat of the self leveling caulk to cover
The two elements that cause the most damage to a wooden deck, whether it is around a house or pool, are sun and water. A pool deck gets even more exposure to water and chemicals than a typical deck.
Caulking the expansion joint around the pool (between the pool coping and pool deck) is important for two reasons. First, caulking keeps out water, which can freeze and expand in the joint during winter. The 10% expansion is enough to damage the coping, beam and eventually the tile. Ice in the expansion joint can be very destructive over time. The second reason is to prevent the expansion joint from filling up with sand and dirt. Over many years, material building up in the

15 Nov 2017 Over time, the pressure from the pool deck will break the top of the pool wall, resulting in a fairly major repair to fix what is called 'beam damage'. A 'Proper' Expansion Joint, is a gap between the pool wall and pool deck that goes clear to the earth beneath the pool deck. Without caulking in the gap, the gap or space soon fills with sand, pebbles, seeds, dirt, etc. When the joint fills with such non-compressible stuff, this removes the gap, and the two structures will move

1 Jul 2016 After the pool is built and full of water, you'll want to backfill some dirt around the pool. Remember the hole was bigger than the pool? Leaving some earth close to the hole will make backfilling much easier. Warning: Backfilling before the pool is full of water will result in the wall caving in! Don't start backfilling too early. Let the pool fill with water so the water's outward pressure will keep the pool wall in place. I know this sounds like a “duh” statement, but believe me it's

Due to the amount of water that is sure to pummel the floorboards it's no wonder that they'd be at the top of pool deck repair scenarios. The water, in conjunction with the pool chemicals and elements, causes the wood to swell. This causes the wood to bow and warp as it dries. Fixing these boards is not at all difficult. Pry them from the deck and measure floorboards that are not warped. Use those measurements to get new floorboards of the exact size you need. Replace the warped or
