    I don't know how to fix this

    We are about to close our pool and my husband by mistake did a small tear on our liner right by the left side of the skimmer. How can we fix this? Are there any kits that anyone recommends before this tear gets any bigger? I really want to fix this before we re-fill next year. Thanks for your help in advance.

    If the wall has a pattern on it where he tore it, bring a picture of the pattern in to the pool store and they might have some old vinyl samples laying around that will come close to matching it.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Any chance of posting a pic?

    As long as the rip is above the waterline, you're fine for the nonce, but addressing it sooner, rather than later, would be optimal

    (I know a whole lot about liners and repairs, so might be able to help you correct this in the most lasting way )
