    Small Holes in Above Ground Pool

    Hi Guys! I am new here

    I am sure this has been asked before but I couldn't seem to find a search feature.

    I have this pool: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Intex-15-x-48 ... l/19414904
    Intex 15" x 48" Metal-Frame Above-Ground Pool

    We haven't had water in it for about a year and it has acquired some small pin holes from acorns. I think I also saw a hole about the size of a dime, maybe a bit smaller. What can I use to patch these? We are having a kids pool party in July and need to get it fixed up soon!

    I saw Permaseal on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Olympic-Permaseal ... W74C9KQGII) and was about to buy it when I saw it said it was for "cracks" in the pool. So I am unsure if that is what I need.

    Could you guys give me some advice on how I can patch these holes up and get running again?

    Thanks!!

    If you don't have the patch kit that came with the pool, go to a pool store and ask for a vinyl liner patch kit.

    I saw this on Intex's website: http://www.intexcorp.com/index.php/repl ... 10114.html

    REPAIR KIT FOR AGP POOLS (BLUE COLOR)

    Only $2.99. Is it really that simple?? Just use that to cut and patch the crud out of any holes I see? For some reason I thought the caulk seal stuff would work better. But you guys would know best!

    I made lots of mistakes with my 1st intex pool, which resulted in several tears. Underwater repair patch kit (at any pool store) works great. No doubt it can mend your holes.
