    Holes in Intex pool

    Ok ill be honest i didnt do the best winter upkeep but here i am trying to getvthe pool going for a new summer. My pool is 1 years old this will be its second summervand i found 3 holes well tears about 1inch some smaller. I only looked in one area there might be morez. The holes are at the side bottom. Can i just use tspe to patch the holes orshould i buy a liner? Whats the best way to fix this or should i trash the pool?

    Probably the best way is to use a vinyl pool repair kit...most places like walmart etc. have them and so do pool stores.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    After you patch the holes fill the pool up with about an inch of water and look for wet spots around and under the pool. If you find a wet area you can roll the edge of the pool over at the bottom edge and squeeze it like a water bed and see where the leak is, if it is near the edge. You can then lift up the pole of the pool and put it on a chair and patch the hole from under the pool and on the other side. This is how I patched my pool.
