How can above ground pool be repaired


It sounds like the hole is relatively small. You can make a patch using a piece of sheet metal or a piece of flat aluminum which you can purchase at Lowes or Home Depot in the hardware dept. Use sheet metal if the metal surround is metal. Use aluminum if the surround is aluminum. You can tell which is which by taking a magnet and touching the metal. If the magnet sticks, it's metal not aluminum. Cut the patch using sheet metal shears to a size that is 4 inches by four inches larger than the hole. Then you'll have two inches on each side of the hole. You are going to need to put the patch on the inside of the metal, between the liner and the metal surround. This so the hole edges won't tear the liner. When you cut the patch, round off the edges so there are no sharp edges. Take duct tape and cover the edges of the patch. Place 1/2 the width of the duct tape and apply it to one side of the patch and fold the other half over to the other side. You can cut a round patch, but a square or rectangle patch will be easier. Just cut the corners round. Purchase a small tube of silicone sealant ( when you but the patch material) and apply a bead around the patch edges and in the middle. Then affix the patch over the hole. Wipe off any sealant that ozzed through the patch so it doesn't bond to the liner.

I have a early 70's magnavox model 1p3760. The speakers produce no bass responses. I cannot tell if the speakers are blown are foam surrounds are damages because they are enclosed in styrofoam. Can you...


magnavox model 1p3760 is a stylus for a phono.

Regardless, if the woofers are working they will vibrate. You can feel the cones moving. Damaged surrounds won't kill them.

As far as repairing or replacing them, you need to define the speakers better.

Water draining in bottom of refrigerator


Unplug the refrig . Inside the refrig section , remove the 4 screws ( 2 on each side ) and
lower the panel . Disconnect the large plug and remove the panel by pulling froward to
clear the defrost drain hole .Find a food safe caulking or odorless silicon and caulk at the
upper portion where the styrofoam meets the plastic AND on the top center of the styrofoam (
all the way around the large rectangle hole ) so that the styrofoam will seal to the top of
the refrig . When the refrig goes into defrost , the water is seeping between the refrig top
and the styrofoam , causing it to run into the refrig section . When reassembling , be sure
to plug the large plug back into the refrig .

While the panel is down , use a hose inserted into the opening of the drain hole on the rear
wall , to blow thru to remove any unseen blockage in the drain line .

Jbl subs


One time I had 2 MTX 10" subs that had a rubber surround. I was playing it a little hard and tore the surround pretty much all the way around. I bought some windshield urethane and glued it back together. I got rid of them a little while after that and surprisingly the guy who bought them tell me they still sound great. So the answer is yes and no. Depending on the surround you might be able to get away with it. Make sure that you use something that stays flexible even after setting. Also depending on where the tear is and how big it is, it might not even hurt the sub. I hope I could help.
