    Patch doesn't match?

    We had 6 places where the liner had come of of track in a foreclosure we bought. I was able to get 5 back in myself. The last one was about 18in long and 6 in pulled down. I had a "pool guy" come to try and get the last one. WELL, he ended up poking a hole in the liner. He patched the hole, and I told him to just leave it alone because it had stretched TOO much....I waited until the next day and got it back in the track myself. Now, I don't like the patch and we're getting ready to put the house on the market. Anyone know if you can order patch kits specific to the pattern? I believe this one is called Cambridge? I tried to find the company, but can't find them. I'd love to have a "sample" that you see hanging in the pool stores! That would be an easy match! Any suggestions?

    I don't have anything to say other than I understand why you want a different patch. That one stands out. Hopefully this will bump your post and one of the more knowledgeable men & women of this forum will have some advice.

    Thanks all! I've emailed several companies to see if they would sell me a scrap or sample. I only need a small piece. Any installers on here happen to have any scrap?

    Just be aware even if you find the right matching pattern your old liner has faded considerably from the original color also if this was a pin hole they make clear patches.

    Thanks, yes, I'm sure it would be different since the liner is about 7 yrs old, but I only need about a 3 inch piece & I think it would look a lot better.

    Just incase anyone else ever needs a matching patch, I googled "Cambridge Vinyl Liner Fabricator" and emailed the company. I attached a photo and they are sending me a scrap free of charge! It may not be perfect, but it will match better than what I have. Thanks everyone!

    I know! Latham & PenAir both responded! I was so impressed! It's so hard to find good customer service these days! I will sure be checking with them the next time I need a liner!

    Please don't make my mistake and go with clear. It clouds and looks bad. I am having my pool company come out and cover all mine. They stick out mile away.
