It could probably be patched; 8 years is a long time for an intex pool though so I'd say it's time for a replacement pool. Many intex owners hold those returns up with string or wire to help prevent that very issue.

After posting this, I removed both returns and reattached them. I thought I was able to get a nice seal around each return, until I filled up the pool and noticed a tear in the liner next to the return🤬 I figured 8 years of use is pretty good for a soft sided AGP. Time to order a new one. I ended up ordering an intex 24x52 ultra frame XTR AGP on amazon. Should be here on Monday. Hopefully I can get another 8 years out of the new pool🙏🏻

I'd love to hear how you got 8 years out of that pool! That's awesome!! Are you taking down in the winter?

When we bought this house 3 years ago, the previous owners said they had the pool up all year for 5 years. The amazing thing is, I live in northern Maine and we have 6 months of harsh winters. The only thing I do to winterize the pool is drop the water levels below the returns and store the pump/heater/filter in the garage. I also load up the pool floater with chlorine tables and wait for the 10 feet of snow to fill the pool.

That's amazing, I'm in a similar climate, the mountains of WV. I'll be happy if I get 3 or 4 years out of this pool.
