    Vinyl Liner Tear Repair

    Hi All, been around in the spa forums, my first venture into AGPs. I scored this 18' x 48" Intex on Craigslist for $100 knowing about this tear, although it's larger than originally described.

    A new liner can be had for $250 shipped but out of stock until the end of July. I'm curious what you'd put the chances at of me being able to repair a tear of this size. It's probably 14"-18" long and about 4" above where the bottom and side seam is.


    I purchased this repair kit as it contained the adhesive recommended on here. : Boxer - 4 oz Vinyl Swimming Pool Liner Repair Kit : Swimming Pool Maintenance Kits : Patio, Lawn Garden

    Am I wasting my time with this pool? Should I just go buy a new one?

    Thanks in advance,

    It would take a miracle to patch that, I am not saying you can't but 99% chance it will not work... That liner is holding back about 60 thousand pounds..

    That's a pretty massive tear.

    Thanks for the opinions.. bought a new 18x48 Coleman tonight. Will sell the parts from the Intex to make a few bucks back.
