Pool Patch FAQ

We hope you already have read our articles about pool patching and about patch kits themselves.

After having a better idea about how to install a pool patch, there are a few questions that you should be asking yourself. Most pool owners will never have to worry about tearing their pool. However, if you do happen to have a tear, this is something that you should consider.

Where My Pool Is Leaking?

One of the most effective ways to determine the location of your pool's leak is by using a pool leak detection dye. This will allow you to identify the exact spot where you need to put a patch. To use the dye, you must first narrow down the area where you believe the leak is located. Once you have found the area, you can then apply the dye in the water. The dye will flow toward the leak once it senses that something is happening. This happens because the water pressure changes. It's important to pinpoint the exact location of the leak so that you can patch it.

I Need to Patch My Pool. What Should I Use?

There are various types of pool patches that you can use depending on the type of pool that you have. For instance, you can use a vinyl liner patch or a waterproof tape. On the other hand, if you have a plaster pool, you can use a patch that's filled in the gaps that have been damaged.

The Best Pool Patch?

The best pool patches are those that use a larger sheet of vinyl and an underwater adhesive. This type of patch will prevent the water from leaking again.

Is It Really Work?

The use of pool patches is temporary and can only be replaced with a new one in the future. However, if you have a vinyl liner, make sure that you avoid getting a rip or a tear in the process.

How Long Does It Last?

A high-quality pool patch can last for up to two years. However, it's important to note that this type of patch is not intended to be a permanent solution. Instead, it can be used as a bandaid.

Should I Drain My Pool?

Doing so can be very dangerous since it can cause pools to collapse. Fortunately, the manufacturers of pool patches have made products that are designed to be installed underwater. If you don't want to use the traditional method of draining the pool, you can always use a pool patch that's underwater.

Great products. As a leak technician, working on all sorts and sizes of pool leaks, I had once used a product like this. Works like magic for sealing leakages.
