    leaks in 24 foot round pool

    Does anyone have experience with fix a leak? I have small pinhole leaks down at the transition part of the liner where the walls of the pool transition to the bottom of the pool, I get small pinholes in this part of the liner anyone know what causes these small leaks, I can patch them but the next year there's always more to find. I'm going to try fix a leak to see if it helps, i read that it is kinda of a last resort but the only other alternative is a new liner,

    Welcome to the forum. . Any chance your vacuum or auto cleaner is snagging that place where the walls and the floor meets?

    I have found them on the flat part to but seems to be more on the transition part where wall meets the floor of pool

    How old is the liner? If brittle and old it will eventually fail. I found this out the hard way with mine in the winter when it let go and froze. Destroyed the walls so a tottal replacement was needed. But the pool was 30 years old so it eventually would have needed it.
