    Patchless patch

    Has anyone used this before? I have a leak that is not taking a patch very well and was hoping someone has had good results with this.

    How large is the leak? Sometimes you can just take an extra piece of liner and use it as a patch. Maybe check to see if the company who sold you the pool has a defective or sample liner that they could cut a piece from.

    I've never used EZ Patch's vinyl products however I can say that there plaster/tile products work well.

    I have liner from the build. It is a small hole. It is the location of the hole that is a problem. It is on the outside corner of a step on a seam. I patched it last year and it held well for the year. Started to leak just a bit this year so I pulled it and replaced. The problem is that I cant put pressure on the part that is leaking. If I could put a brick in towel on it I think it would be ok. I am thinking that the patchless stuff would be great it if was something I could ball up and then place on the hole and not have to put a brick on it.
