How to Repair/Patch a Leaking Vinyl Liner Pool

Boxer Adhesives Vinyl Liner Repair Kit

You’re vacuuming up your pool, taking care of all of the dirt and debris and the next thing you know, the vacuum head breaks, you lurch forward and the pole has accidentally put a hole in your pool’s vinyl liner.

This could easily turn into a big problem. A full vinyl liner replacement could easily be a thousand dollars, needing to schedule a time for a replacement and putting a decent size dent in your summer pool plans.

But fear not, the  Boxer Adhesive Vinyl Repair Kit turns this into an easy, self-fix that you can do to get your leaking pool back up to speed and ready for summer celebrations.

This Vinyl Pool Liner repair kit works well for patching tears and holes in your vinyl pool liner. The kit is simple to use and supplies you with the needed “Do-It-Yourself” essentials to get the job done. The pool liner repair kit doesn’t require you to empty the pool out before use as it works just fine underwater.

Items included in the kit are the following:

  • 4 oz. tube of #100 vinyl adhesive
  • 500 sq. in. of clear vinyl patch
  • Dauber applicator

  • Using the product is very simple and easy. Start off by cleaning the damaged surface and then cut a piece of vinyl that is close to double the size of the damaged area. Apply a generous amount of adhesive to the vinyl but don’t worry as it is designed to work while submerged. Secure to the damaged area by pressing tightly and allowing it to dry for 24 hours.

    Some good advice to adhere to during this repair process includes rounding the  vinyl patch to ensure that no corners exist that are easier to peel over time. Also, it’s definitely alright to add a very liberal amount of the adhesive to the patch ensuring as best of a seal as possible. As you are applying this patch underwater, make sure you pinch patch while going underwater and then opening above the damaged surface. Lastly, it is possible to use a larger patch over the initial repair for additional strengthening or fixing.
