    Leaking at the seam

    The lower seam is leaking. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Lost almost a foot in 4 hours. The stream is half the size of a #2 pencil.

    I don't think you could patch a very large section, but a hole a few inches long shouldn't be an issue. Read this over for some directions.

    so I successfully patched that hole and low and behold about a foot away a quarter sized hole popped up and then it split to 6-8 inches. The pool is done and I feel bad for the kids but I refuse to buy a new one with only a couple to 3 months tops left for swimming season before the 3-4 month off season. I guess you get what you pay for. I was deployed and the wife got the pool from big lots. Lesson learned. Next year will be an intex ultra frame pool. I hear they are much sturdier.

    Check your local Craigslist... you might find some screaming deal there.

    How much better are the ultra frame pools?

    If I were getting a new, multi season Intex, it would be an ultra frame with a skimmer and a sand filter. I had EasySet and I am beyond that. I don't care for the u- tubed sack pools but is likely preference vs knowledge.

    The Intex metal frame 15'-4' is on sale at Walmart.com for $229.00. That is cheap.

    yeah I'm sure come the turn of the year in going with the 18'x9' ultra frame pool. It sucks because now I have a swg that was hooked up for three weeks that'll have to sit till next spring.
