Waterproof Vinyl Repair


Vinyl material is waterproof, which is why it is so commonly used to line the inside of both above-ground and in-ground swimming pools. Repairing a damaged liner is fairly simple, and the vinyl adhesive glue you'll use is waterproof. Once it has dried, there should be no issue with the patch slipping or not sticking.

Things You'll Need

  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Vinyl patch
  • Scissors
  • Waterproof vinyl adhesive
  • Paintbrush or applicator
  • Measure the size of the tear in the vinyl with a tape measure or ruler. Whether it is a large hole or a thin rip, you can fix it with the vinyl patch.

  • Cut the patch to the correct size needed, using scissors. Leave a few inches on each end of the vinyl patch strip, or give it an extra few inches in diameter if the damage is a round shape.

  • Cover one side of the patch with the waterproof vinyl adhesive, using the applicator or paintbrush.

  • Hold the patch over the torn area, and then gently press down on it. Move it quickly into place if it happens to shift, and then firmly hold it for a few minutes until it begins to set. Allow 24 to 48 hours of drying time.
