You can put a patch on the outside while there's water in it. What you do, is put a piece of plastic (bag, saran wrap, anything similar) on the inside to stop the leak while patching the outside. Place your patch with glue, then if you can, put a flat magnet on each side to hold it together and keep the plastic in place. Remove when it's cured, and it should hold you at least the season, when you can patch the inside.

How to find a hole in intex vinyl pool


look for wet spots..if its full of water and you fear its in the floor..take a small bottle with red food coloring in it and work your way along the seals in the floor..squeeze out a bit of coloring and see if it flows to the leak suspected area..we do this on in-ground pools around the plastic fixtures and along cracks in the walls to determine water loss rates..and to check for flow in the system..

SMALL HOLE BOTTOM OF 15 x 4 metal frame pool. believe a small pebble caused it. water leaking out is there a way to save the poolwithout draining and taking it apart?


Try this....
You will need;
Pool liner patch kit
Goggles
Body weight to hold you down while doing repair under water.

Most liner repair kits have instructions on wet applications. Cut a piece of the liner kit fabric to cover the entire hole plus at least 1/2" around. You will need to dive in with a mask/goggles to see the hole. Put a thin layer of glue on the patch and spread evenly.. Fold in half on the glue side and go down to the bottom of the pool. Note...The weights will help you stay at the bottom for this part of the repair.. QUICKLY!!! while holding the patch next to the hole. open the patch and place on the hole and push firmly for a few seconds. Come up and place your foot on the patch and hold for 3 minutes or so. Should work...It took me several times to master this technique when I had a hole at the bottom of my pool... Caution!!! You don't need a lot of weight to stay at the bottom. Test from light to heavy until you think you have enough to do the repair..
Good luck and hope this will help you!! If this works for you, please rate!

Have an Intex 12ft x 3ft metal frame pool. Set it up first and filled it and it lost more than half the water overnight. Did everything I was told to find the leak and nothing. Was on hands and knees in...


what is not included in the instructions is the simple " lay down a bed of filter sand around 3" thick before placing liner in the pool frame and radius it up at the bottom corners
that sand is necessary because any small pebble , rock or edge will cut the thin liner under water pressure or feet walking in the bottom of the liner
further more , if you use chlorine as a cleaning , antibacterial agent that will cause pin holes in any part of the liner not completely covered by water

How do i hook a vaccum up to my model 604 filter pump?


You should take your vacuum hose and plug it into the hole in the bottom of one of the skimmers. Fill the hose with water first or your pump will loose suction. I fill my hose by putting the head of the vacuum in the pool. Take the other end and hold it over a pool's discharge port (where the water comes back to the pool from the pump. When the air bubbles stop, put your hand over the end of the hose and move it to the skimmer and connect it.

That work for you?

Thanks fo your visit today.

Is there any chemicals I need to add to my pool when I leave it up and full of water for the winter. I am worried about the alge growth. when I stop treating the water . on my salt water system.


If you have the intex soft side pool do not leave it up.
Once the water freezes and thaws you take a big risk of gouging the pool and thus tearing it.
These pools are meant to be taken down every year if you live in a freeze area

I LOST MY OWNER MANUAL FOR MY 18X48 EASY SET INTEX POOL AND I DON'T REMEMBER HOW TO SET UP THE PUMP AND FILTER


Attach the hose from the lower part (the pump) to the lower hole (intake) on your pool. The attach the hose from the taller part (the filter part) to the taller hole on your pool.

Open the spigot on both parts of the pool (turn, lift and lock into open position) openings. You'll hear water fill up the filter section. Make sure the knob on top of the filter section is a little open and let the air bleed out. You'll know when it is full of water when it starts spitting water out. Close the top then.

Plug in your pump and turn it on. If it doesn't take much water in at first, reopen up the knob on top of the filter to let more air out. Once it spits water, close that up.

Hope this helps!

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.

Water loss in pool, but no hole in liner


The only problem is that ther is a leak in the liner. Generally at the bottom where a rock or debris has made a small hole. They can be patched but the pool will need to be drained. Call your local pool service company.
