Well I was being stupid today. Only our 2nd time in the pool and I grabbed my surfboard and was messing around with friends, trying standing up on it - it shot out from underneath me and pierced the side of our pool. One of those stupid moments you feel like a kid again and could reverse time.
Anyway, I quickly grabbed some duct tape to keep the water from flowing out. It's kind of doing the job for now, but I don't think it'll last.
The tear is about 16-18" wide.. pretty big.
I see I have some patch stuff that came with our pool, but none of it is wide enough. There are 3 different patches that have the pattern of the inside of the pool, with different colored backs. I can't figure out what those are for, or how they are different from one another (wasn't clear to me in the manual).
Anyone have any suggestions? I wondered if I could actually "stitch" the tear so it doesn't continue to tear wider?
Is there a way to patch this without emptying the water?
Thanks for any tips.
