    Leak by gasket where skimmer is located

    I have 2 very small drips coming from my skimmer on my pool. The pool is a 19󭅉2 intext vinyl above ground pool. I would like to know if there are some adhesives or something that I can use to plug the leaks without having to go thru the whole process of taking everything apart and replacing the gasket. If there is anything I can buy please let me know

    Sorry, but no. If snugging things up doesn't dry up the leaks, it has to come apart. Laying a bead of something around the outside will just cause the leak to shift to a new spot, and then you'll have to clean off the mess when you get around to fixing it right.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
