Question about Adhesives, Coatings & Sealants

What's a good marine sealant to use on leaking underwater port holes on swimming pool?

The house we bought has a pool with two underwater port holes or windows (yes, bad idea -- but not mine) that bring in light underwater. They are on a side wall that opens out to the woods; the pool is not entirely in the ground. When it gets cold enough, usually in the 20s, the windows leak and the pool loses a lot of water. I do not want to drain the pool to repair them this time of year, but am instead looking for a temporary fix in the form of a good sealant that can be applied to the outside of the windows at the edges (which are wet). Any ideas? Thanks

Hayward pool filter Model SP711 alignment on filter, ports, spider gasket replacement


Remove the 6 screws from around the valve assembly. Pay close attention to the current orientation of the valve assembly before removing. Lift the value assembly straight out and the spider gasket is on the bottom. This could be twisted a little which would also cause your back flush port to leak when positioned in the filter position. If twisted, just position back in alignment with the valve holes on the bottom of the valve assembly. If the gasket is worn or torn then just replace and place the valve assembly back in the valve housing and replace all 6 screws. If you still have problems with water not functioning based on the way you have the handle turned then it might be time to replace the entire valve assembly.

Above ground pool leak


Is this an above ground pool or an in ground pool? As a general rule you don't want vinyl to go too long without water. Water helps things stay in place. If the vinyl starts to shrink and bow inward there is a good chance that it will lose its elasticity and split when the pool is being refilled. I would advise you to go ahead and refill the pool. Leaks can be repaired underwater. In the event of a split I'd go back to the installer and pursue a new liner at his expense.

My 14' pool is leaking from the bottom slowly. 1" per 26hrs. I can not find a hole. No water on the sides of the pool. It is leaking out from under it. How do I find the hole. I have patched holes...


Using goggles I inspect the bottom and looking at each individual speck on the bottom. Sometimes what looks like debris is actually a hole though it seems it would take a good size hole to leak that much. Check the seam by gently trying to spread it.

This should be easy ... a foot of water? I would suggest you are leaking out the bottom. do you have a mask and snorkel? Watch the bottom from a floating position ... you might find the hole ... there are underwater patch kits for this very purpose.

How do you fix a leak to a 15x48 swimming pool without emptying all the water? it's a small leak on a seam near the ground.pool has been up a week & no leak, until tonight?


They make underwater patch kits that are very simple to use. You cut a patch and apply glue, fold the patch in half with the glue faceing in. take it to the leak and slowley unfold against the hole. smooth out and make sure edges are sealed down. Keep pressure on the patch as instructed on package. Then let cure. Good luck.

I have two holes in the bottom of my pool how do I fix them


The easiest way to patch a hole in a vinyl pool liner is with the water still in the pool. With an inexpensive underwater repair kit, some swimming goggles and a few hours to allow the patch to cure, you will be back to enjoying your aquatic playground. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Pool repair kit (underwater) Rag Scissors Swimsuit Swimming goggles
  1. Step 1 Locate the tear in the liner. You may need to get into the pool and examine the surface wearing swimming goggles.
  2. Step 2 Read the patching kit instructions thoroughly before starting the job.
  3. Step 3 Clean debris from the area around the tear using a rag.
  4. Step 4 Use scissors to cut a patch for the hole. Use the vinyl from the repair kit to for the patch. Be sure it is at least 2 inches in diameter and will cover the entire hole.
  5. Step 5 Use applicator brush that comes with kit to apply adhesive to the back of the vinyl patch. Do not apply too much adhesive or the patch will not cure properly.
  6. Step 6 Fold the patch in half. The adhesive should be on the inside of the fold.
  7. Step 7 Enter the pool2_bing.gif water and relocate the area in need of patching. If hole is accessible from the outside of the pool, there is no need to get into water.
  8. Step 8 Hold patch underwater as close to the hole as possible. Unfold patch while underwater and apply to the hole.
  9. Step 9 Press the patch firmly while smoothing it from the center to the outside edges. This will help remove any excess air bubbles or water from under the patch surface.
  10. Step 10 Let patch cure as indicated on repair kit instructions.
