    Patched turned ugly

    I patched a hole in my liner in the corner near the skimmer last year. It was a clear patch probably not the best choice since you can see the hole but now I know. Anyways when I opened up the pool this year the glue under it had turned a yellowish color so I have quite the ugly spot. Is there a paint on can use on vinyl to cover it up.

    None that I am aware of. I suppose you could paint it with about any type of paint, although it may not last long.

    I had the same thing happen to me, I think I used Boxer clear patches. I remember asking about it and was told it was probably UV that turned the epoxy yellow, I thought it might be from CL. I dove down and the patch lifted off every easily then I replaced it with a piece of my liner that the manufacturer had sent me at no cost.

    I wish I could match up a piece of liner, mines to old and faded I think. I was thinking of getting a small section of borderlines but wondering if that will look tacky. One more season and hopefully I can get it replaced.

    Just find a patch that will look normal on the bottom and will not look like a patch. Cut out a solid color patch shaped like a turtle or something.
