You are right. They miss him in Long Island, N.Y. ever since 1980, when he moved to Port Richey, Florida.

The plastic forms a cavity for the top edge of the tile to fit in and provides a finish look between the lower edge of the pool deck and the top edge of the tile. Bill

Bill,

I have the same problem. Did you get any other information? The plastic on my pool just has small pieces missing here and there. If I could find a place to buy the plastic, I was going to just try and glue a new piece all around the pool to cover up the missing chips.

The plastic strip is imbeded in the concrete during the pour of the cantilever deck.
It provides finishing look. The purpose is pure cosmetics. It cannot be replaced, and it would not match colorwise anyway. You can either live with it, remove it all, or re-tile and grout to the coping.
I know it sucks, but those are the option pretty much.
