Sloping waterline tile and coping

Posted by showerq (My Page) on

So we just filled our pool, and as the water level got up to the waterline tile it becomes obvious that the tile and coping on two sides (it is a rectangle pool) slope downwards into the corner where they meet. So now the pool looks so silly, like it is crooked. Any ideas? The coping is formed concrete. They only thing I can think of, is to somehow take the coping and tile off and put them back level! Is that possible without doing damage to the rest of the pool?
Thanks for your thoughts!

RE: Sloping waterline tile and coping

You will most likely have to remove tile, coping and any deck attached to the coping. Also will need to patch plaster or replaster pool. There are no easy fixes.
Make PB fix it. Don't let them get away grouting under the tile and sloping the coping to match any existing deck.
How far out of level it is? And is the skimmer at the lower level?
