I have been installing a solar system for my pool. I had some sand on the end of a 2" pipe and dipped it in the pool. It slipped out of my hand and hit the bottom hard. I didn't think I had a puncture. It's now about a week later, has rained tons for the last two weeks and I noticed this morning that the water is about 2" below my overflow. I grabbed a mask, hopped in, and sure enough, it's a clean puncture over about half the circumference of the pipe. Basically, a half moon.
Now what? I still have a good bit of the extra liner from when my pool was installed almost 2 years ago. Is it possible to install a patch without draining the pool? Please say yes!
Another issue, is should I be wary of running the Polaris the rest of the day for fear of sucking too much sand from the puncture?
