    auugghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    **** **** ****!!! bought a new 24'x52" metal frame intex. put it up, filled it.....rain, rain, rain....it's now sinking in mud so we empty as its not level....put it too the side to do MORE groundwork and dog runs up and bites about a 1/2" gash in the bottom of the pool. we have had nothing but issues but pushin onward. went to buy another liner from intex...out of stock..but of course for likely 2 weeks. ready to cry...lol. so what are the chances of a patch actually working? all this water..all that pressure????? is it gonna hold? practically on a seam no less. i haven't even gotten a toe wet yet and about 1300.00 into it. would someone please give a female some decent news, something i can at least attempt without having 15000 gal o water dumped in the yard? HELP PLEASE!!!!!

    A properly applied patch will hold just fine for many years. Patches don't usually last as long as the liner would if it wasn't patched, but then you just patch them again.

    Welcome to TFP!!

    If you haven't put the pool back up yet, put a patch on the outside as well as the inside

    If you need tips on applying the patches, I've got some posted here or you can just ask how to do it 8)

    The pool will be fine once it's patched and on level ground

    Check here... hole-in-vinyl-liner-how-to-repair-it-t6656.html?hilit=boxer%20100

    The Boxer stuff is great. No need to empty the pool. I just patched a tear with it. Thanks, by the way, Waste. Was so proud of myself this season... opened myself to crystal clear water, swimming a week before Memorial Day...but it seems I forgot to put the plastic caps on the feet of the ladder!
