    Holes in vinyl liner

    Just noticed today that I have two holes in my liner. One is about the size of a dime with a tiny small crack in the bottom of the hole. The other hole is half the size of the first one. Both are just above the water line. The liner looks pretty old. It's all white below the water line. It's not brittle though. What is the best way to repair a small hole so it does not become a big hole. Vinyl patch,some type of epoxy or some type of sealant? I'm going to start saving for a new liner now! Hopefully this one will be okay for a while longer.

    Home Depot has a patch kit that works great. You can even put it on under water!

    Make sure your patch is bigger than your hole and had rounded sides.

    Use Boxer brand adhesive with your patch

    You can also go to a local pool store or installer and see if they have some scraps of liner you could get. You may even get lucky and get a matching color. I agree with the boxer adhesive too.

    Thanks, I will check with the pool store and see if they have some old liner that matches.
