    VINYL POOL FLOAT REPAIR? Options???

    I have 2 blue vinyl coated pool floats that have bite marks (it wasn't me!) and a few minor chips missing. I wanted to fix these since they're not too cheap to replace and are otherwise in good condition. I know that a company called "super soft" sells a vinyl repair and sealant kit for pool floats and PFD's. My concern is that it's not enough to fix both floats. I saw that Performix makes a blue "Plasti Dip" spray and dip that looks like it could fit the bill. Plasti Dip seems quite durable and is used in TONS of applications so it could work.

    Has anyone attempted to fix their vinyl coated pool floats? With Plasti Dip?

    Any success?

    I've never had any experience in this. Maybe someone else can help.

    I Plasti-Dipped a car but haven't used it on pool toys. I did see a thread where someone Plasti-Dipped their pool piping at the pad and it looked great.

    Please post and let us know if it works or not.
