Rust Hole in Pool Wall
by Kim Fife
I have a above ground pool 12x24 its 10 years old and I just noticed the wall has a rust hole in it.
What do I do? We have river rock around the pool and a nice paver patio. Can I save the pool?
Please help. Thanks, Kim
Hi Kim. Small rust holes in the wall of above ground pools can be repaired. You will need to drain the pool water down to somewhere below the rust holes. Be careful not to take too much water out of the pool or the liner will shrink. Take out just enough that you can pull the liner back and get in behind it.
Small holes can be repaired by taping sheets of metal flashing material to the inside of the sidewall. Use flat stock that is a lot bigger than the hole and use plenty of duct tape.
