    Help with pool patch!!

    I have a hole in my a.g. pool and i bought a pool patch kit. As soon as i put glue on the patch the patch starts to curl up and i cant even work with it to try to fold it over onto itself. Any ideas on what i am doing wrong? Thanks!!

    Also I have been told that you should have a broom stick with you and have someone swirl the broom stick around while the patch is being pushed into place. Some of the adhesive will leak out and it will stick to what every it comes in contact with...I.E. the stick and not your legs or the sides of the pool. Pool installer told me this...It makes sense.
