I have an 18' round Intex pool that we put up the first of July (new) and upon taking it down this last weekend I noticed that there are numerous pin holes in the bottom. We put the tarp down over sand and I am thinking the sand wore through the tarp and the bottom of the pool. It appears it did leak some as there were trails in the sand that looked similar to insect tunnels, weaving through the sand.
My question is what is the best way to patch these? From the bottom or the inside of the pool? I plan on putting the pool away after patching. Should I wait until next year to patch?
I have the standard patch kit that came with the pool, but I also purchased a couple kits made by Poolmaster meant for vinyl pools that contains a clear patch and adhesive.
Thanks for your help and the awesome forum!
