Thread: Gap appeared between liner and steps, not sure how to patch?

    Gap appeared between liner and steps, not sure how to patch?

    Hello, I recently purchased a new house with a inground liner pool. I've learned alot from this website over the past week.

    My pool was holding water for 2 weeks with no noticable losses.

    I just added a liner patch around the top of the pool (ameri-sheild) and I am very pleased with the looks.

    The problem is that the patch (or more likely the hh-66 glue) caused the old liner to pull away from the steps. There is now about a 0.5" gap that the water is leaking if I fill it.

    So I have a vinyl liner and it seems like a plastic hold-down that seperates the steps from the pool.

    My question is, do I use pool putty, marine silicone, or vinyl patch?

    Or do I unscrew the hold-down and patch the vinyl and screw the hold-down back?

    Pics are attached. Any help would be much appreciated!!!

    Anyone have ideas? Is this the wrong place to post this?

    The liner folks haven't seen it yet. Give it a day or two and bump it again if noone has replied.

    Just my 2 cents, but personally I think what you need is a new liner.
