Hello my friends at TFP
I am resetting up my pool this year. Well things are not going quite as planned. I got about 1/2 way and can see some water on the ground outside the pool in a few different spots.
At first I didn't think much of it, but after a day I can see quite a bit more water on the ground. I walked around the pool to where the water spots are are kicked the bottom to see
if any water comes out. BTW you need to kick it pretty hard! Each time I kicked it, I could see some water shoot out. Looking from the inside, I could see this right where the bottom
seam is going completely around the pool. This is in 3 different spots and the spots are in completely different areas.
Intex Pools are a bit different as the liner and wall are all in one. Basically it's just a very thick vinyl is all. Now the seam I am talking about is at the bottom and goes the whole diameter
of the pool. On the inside, it has a lip about 1 inch that covers the seam. Oddly enough, the lip is facing upward instead of downward. I've had to clean inside this lip before because
crud can build up in there. This means you can pull that lip back and look down into where the seam really is.
I've poked about the forum for a bit reading about fixing Intex seams but nothing really stands out for my situation. Most was suggesting patching it just as a normal tear. But I am trying
to think out of the box and go a different method such as using my HH-66 Vinyl Cement I have and pulling back that lip applying directly to the seam. Another thought was a bead of
liquid nail or silicone. I plan on doing the whole seam if I can just to prevent any other leaks that might arise.
I am looking for some alternative to just regular patching since the area is a bit unique and that lip.
I'll try to get a better picture when I get home.
Thanks a bunch,
