First let me say I have missed you guys!! When I saw the tear today I new exactly where to go for help! This tear is in a spot that pulls away often and we have to pull it back in. The liner is 7 years old and I know we need a new one but the estimate is $4500 and it is just not in the budget. Ironically, when the pool man came, he said he was impressed it had made it 7 years. I guess he jinxed us! The tear just showed up this week and the pool man came a month ago! Anyway, is a patch possible? Have a feeling we will see a lot of these in the weak spots where the liner pulls away. Thanks in advance for your advice.
