vinyl repair kit recommendation?

May 15, 2013
I have a Summer Escapes 18 foot round pool. I currently have the pool closed and realized there is a leak on the bottom somewhere. I haven't uncovered it and gone in to find the exact leak yet. Which vinyl repair kit have you used in the past and would recommend to use or even to stay away from? I found patch kits that can be used without draining the pool, are these good?

Any vinyl pool repair patch will do. Clean the area really good, the patch is opened under water near the area to be repaired. A squeegee helps to make it really smooth. There is also underwater tape.

I purchased the Boxer brand based on reviews. We got a lot of rain this year,i a few of the bricks shifted, and I'm expecting a leak. I have not used it yet but I am prepared.
