All above ground swimming pools need a cove! Read any pool manufacture's installation instructions and you will find: "The cove is a vital structural element of your pool." A cove is needed to keep the weight of the water in the pool liner from causing it to balloon out under the bottom of the pool wall. Previously, pool cove had to be hand built, in place, using tons of sand or dirt. Liner failures due to cove washout were all too common. Corrosion occurs rapidly where metal components, at the bottom of the pool, come in contact with moisture in the sand or dirt. Hand formed coves are uneven, with hand or shoe prints, making cleaning difficult.
A Pool cove becomes part of your pool to seal the space between the
wall and the liner and to prevent liner strain. Made from chemically-neutral foam, it
helps fight corrosion. It's compatible with all vinyl liners. Eliminates the need for
banking of sand, otherwise used to create a sealed barrier between the wall and liner.
Accommodates wall stretch to help prevent liner tearing and leaking. Fights corrosion to
add years to a pool's life expectancy. Will not erode or freeze; holds its shape
