    paint damaged patch of viynl liner - HELP PLEASE

    in desperate need of an experts advice, i just messed up the pattern (approx 4 x 6 inches) on my 1 yr old vinyl pool liner
    i was using some xylene to remove some excess concrete sealer when it happened
    in a panic i tried to wipe it off which turned the vertical drip into a large patch of missing liner pattern
    it is a full pattern liner in a blue pebble stone look
    as you can imagine i am devastated!
    is there paint available that i can use to try and re-draw the patten as best as possible?
    are there any other solutions other than a liner replacement?
    please help
    thanks

    Do you have the pieces cut out for your skimmer or stairs? You could glue those over the damaged are.

    With that new of a pool, your builder ought to be able to get you a piece of material that you can glue over the offending spot.

    Re: paint damaged patch of viynl liner - HELP PLEASE

    unfortunately i dont have any cut off pieces, but should be available from the pool builder
    the liner is a random full pattern of shades of blue pebble stones
    this is my first pool and i'm looking for the best ascetic appearance to fix my mistake
    how do patches normally turn out? are they quite noticeable afterwards?
    if there such a thing as repainting the pattern?
    i was thinking it might be less noticeable than seams from a patch
    have no experience with this so any help is greatly appreciated

    If you're careful, you ought to be able to glue a piece onto the existing liner, and have the result indistinguishable from what's there.

    We were in need of some patch that matched our liner recently. We went to our local pool store and asked if they had any old sample pieces...........the manager let us have 2 pieces for free.
