Fix A Leak for Swimming Pools
Fix a Leak is a blended concentrated material designed to seal leaks in virtually any material. This product can be applied for leaks in your hot tub shell and works equally well in the plumbing. Fix a Leak will seal holes up to 1/8″ in diameter, it will form a permanent seal.
Use 1 quart per pool up to 22,000 gallons
You may add 1 quart per application if the leak has slowed but not stopped completely.
*NOTE* SUCTION LINE LEAKS
Suction line leaks are usually known by air mixed with the water at the return fittings. In most cases suction lines only leak water when the filter pump is shut off. Normal Circulation will simply draw FIX-A-LEAK away from the leak and if the pump is shut off, the material will simply not get to the leak. You must reverse the flow of water, to force the material through the leak under pressure. Preferably 5-10 psi til the leak has stopped. When this has been achieved, gradually increase pressure to 15-25 psi to insure a proper seal.
After sealing a suction line leak “it” is a must to leave suction off the repaired line for no less than 48 hours. FIX-A-LEAK requires time to cure and harden.
If you suspect a leak around fittings inside the pool (such as return fittings) lights, skimmer(s) or steps, ect.
Shut down pump
Apply FIX-A-LEAK directly to the leak using a squeeze bottle, similar to a ketchup bottle. Allow a minimum of 48 hours to cure before starting up circulation.
