Cup Anchor

A cup anchor is installed in a concrete or gunite swimming pool wall. They secure racing lanes and safety ropes but have other uses as well. It is flush mounted recessed into the wall.

Anchors are made from brass, aluminum or PVC. When replacing tile or coping the water line cup anchors should be replaced at the same time regardless of age. Placement of cup anchors at the transition of the deep to shallow water should be verified as building code dictates location.
