Thread: Dimple leak

    Dimple leak

    I had a buddy that patched a hole in the very bottom corner of the deep end. The hole wasn't all tha big but it had left a big dimple about the size of a half a baseball. The patch sucked into the hole and seemed to work okay. This was back in the spring. Now I am losing a lot of water and I have a few clues that it is coming from that general area.

    The edges of that patch have turned loose but most of it looks in tact. Being that it is in a corner it is a little tricky to get a patch down there. The patch is really designed to go on a flat surface.

    How do people handle this that know what they are doing? Unfortunately I don't. Is there some kind of pool bondo that you can pack in the dimple and then patch over that?

    Any ideas will be apreciated. I need to get this thing fixed before it turns cold. I spent all winter last year adding ater over this same leak.

    My post in this thread gives the basics of patching.

    With a situation like you describe, I'd TRY to put a patch in the dimple and make it stick - then I'd put a patch over the dimpled area (~ 1" larger than the dimple. where the liner is still flat).

    If you need more fro,m me on this, just let me know
