How To Install Pool Cove

Pool Cove is designed to be installed in minutes with little effort. It will last for the life of your pool liner. To save time, read all directions completely before starting your pool cove installation. If you choose not to us a foam cove you must make one out of sand.

Step 1: Follow all of your pool manufacturer assembly instructions that precede cove installation.

Step 2: Make sure you have a 4 inch wide firm, level surface around the entire inside of the pool wall. Make sure the bottom 6 inches of inside pool wall is clean and dry.

Step 3: Take the first piece of cove, peel the protective backing away from the adhesive strip on the back of the cove. Expose about six to twelve inches of the adhesive strip. TIP: To remove backing paper from the adhesive, bend the pool cove, with the adhesive side out, until the backing paper rips. Peel the paper away from the adhesive, starting at the rip.

Step 4: Press the adhesive backing on the first piece of pool cove against the pool wall. Remove the remainder of the protective backing and press the rest of the cove into place along the bottom of the pool wall.

Step 5: Continue around the pool wall installing successive pieces of cove. Make sure that there are no gaps or cracks left between sections. Do not install the last piece of cove.

Step 6: Before installing the final piece of cove, check to see that all pieces fit tightly against each other and rest firmly on the ground around the pool wall.

Step 7: Cut the last piece of cove to fit tightly in the remaining space. TIP: Measure the remaining opening a cut a piece that fits very snuggly. Use a fine tooth saw, knife blade, or box cutter and keep the cut as square as possible.

Step 8: Insert the final piece of cove into the remaining space at bottom of the pool wall.

Step 9: Congratulations!!! You’ve installed your cove.
