Above ground pool busted at the seems - fixable?


Well, my ongoing bad luck is on a roll.. My above ground pool just busted at the seems and I was wondering if that's possible to mend or not? It's the kind of pool that shapes up when you fill it with water it's an Intex model 15feet wide and 4 feet high. It's ripped through and through!

I don't think repairs will hold. A patch kit might hold random repairs but not seams. And you could spend lots that could go to a new pool trying. You might consult a pool company though.

That will need to get re-stitched and resealed. I'd check with a pool supply company first. If you can't get any help there, you might look around for whitewater rafting outfits. They might be able to repair something like this, or at least steer you to someone who can.

Nope. With them being so cheap, you can throw them away and get another. I have gone through three of the Intex pools now, with first two busting at the seams. The third one I have now, it still holds water, but had to patch a hole in the bottom, where a screw in the cabinet that we store it in, poked through. It will be going in the trash next year, due to getting a larger & deeper pool, since my kids are older.

can't imagine it would be worth it, and it would probably look rather unsightly.

If there is any danger of a "blow out" - I would be reluctant to use it at all.
