Small Holes in Above Ground Pool

May 28, 2012
Hi Guys! I am new here :)

I am sure this has been asked before but I couldn't seem to find a search feature.

I have this pool: ... l/19414904
Intex 15" x 48" Metal-Frame Above-Ground Pool

We haven't had water in it for about a year and it has acquired some small pin holes from acorns. I think I also saw a hole about the size of a dime, maybe a bit smaller. What can I use to patch these? We are having a kids pool party in July and need to get it fixed up soon!

I saw Permaseal on Amazon ( ... W74C9KQGII) and was about to buy it when I saw it said it was for "cracks" in the pool. So I am unsure if that is what I need.

Could you guys give me some advice on how I can patch these holes up and get running again?

Thanks!! :)

I made lots of mistakes with my 1st intex pool, which resulted in several tears. Underwater repair patch kit (at any pool store) works great. No doubt it can mend your holes.
