Grout breaking off

luvh20June 17, 2011

I just noticed yesterday that the grout lines for the water-line tile, just under the lip of the coping, is

cracking ,and falling apart.

The pool builder told me that it is normal for this to happen when you have cantilever coping. They will come out , and remove the grout where it meets the coping, and put flexilble caulking in.

Does this sound right to you all??

The pool was just finished a few weeks ago, water in it, kids swimming.

My last pool had pre-cast coping,and didn't have this problem.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Flexible caulking is what should have been there in the first place.
