    ughhh... dog bit my liner.

    Well, brand new 26 x 52 Intex. After working several weeks nonstop on a less than ideal location- fighting roots, moving dirt, leveling, tamping, digging in pavers, cutting and putting down foam insulation... I go get my liner from the garage and discover the dog chewed on an exposed corner and put punctures through it in about 3 layers where it was folded up. OMG I am just about fit to be tied. Now I'm reading about patches and trying to find all the holes. I'd laugh if this pool wasnt about to whip me as it is.

    Oh, dear. I have a big dog that has chewed up so many things, I could just beat him. You have my sympathies.

    You might be able to patch all of the holes????? The above is the best patch stuff out there.

    Bad doggy!

    Going to try to find & patch them all. A new liner is $400. One set of tooth holes is right on the bottom seam area. This is like a bad dream.

    Okay so here is the patching 101.........cover the hole with just bigger than the hole THEN cover again with another patch bigger again. Cut the patch in a circle aka rounded edges only. That helps it stay on.

    Good luck

    lol I know, right? Interesting about the patch method. I did not know that double patch method. Good info.
