    above ground index sprung a leak, pinhole

    Any recommendations for vinyl pool leak? I started filling last night. Went to look around this morning and small pinhole about 5 inches from bottom, now about 2ft under water. Do I need to drain my pool now?

    No need to drain. You should get a patch kit and apply a patch to that area on the inside of the pool. Patches can be applied under water.

    I like to triple up on my patches. The first patch covers the initial hole. The second patch covers the first and the 3rd patch fits right over the second and all corners are rounded off.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
