Pool Repair FAQs
You can patch pool liner tears with our HH-66 adhesive and an appropriate vinyl patch. HH-66 will adhere above or below water.
Things You Will Need:
- HH-66 Adhesive
- Vinyl patch (color-matched or clear are recommended)
- Rubbing alcohol or Acetone
- Clean Rag
Cut the patch to so that it is 2 inches larger on all sides than the size of the tear.
Cut the patch so that it has rounded corners. Clean the cut patch using rubbing alcohol or acetone.
Clean the area to be patched with rubbing alcohol or acetone.
If below the water line
Apply HH-66 to one side of the patch. Do this while above the water line. After 1-2 minutes, fold the patch with the glue on the inside to spread the adhesive and protect from washing away.
Unfold the patch and center it over the rip, covering all torn edges.
If above the water line
Apply evenly to both surfaces and allow adhesive to dry until tacky (generally, beginning of Tack Time range).
With your fingers, push the patch from the center to the edges to remove any air bubbles until the patch is smooth. Hold the patch in place for one minute.
