Fix A Leak
For Sealing Leaks In Pools And Spas
Fix a leak is a blended concentrated material designed to seal leaks in virtually any material. It works extremely well on all types of plastics, from spas to plumbing. Fix a leak forms a permanent seal on holes up to 1/8" in diameter. This is the finest product we recommend to people that have a leak from an unknown or undetectable origin. A single quart will treat up to 20,000 gallons.
General Directions For Use
- Shake Well Before Using
- Bypass FILTER MEDIA before adding FIX-A-LEAK to water. Sand filters: set filter valve to recirculate. Other types: remove cartridges or DE elements from filter tank and proceed to circulate through empty tank.
- With pump running, add FIX-A-LEAK slowly through skimmer or in front of any other suction intake.
- After adding FIX-A-LEAK, adjust suction to main drain. If this is not possible, the vacuum cleaner could be used alternatively, simply by placing the vacuum in deepest part of pool and connect to normal vacuum connection. Set filter valve to normal vacuum position.
- FIX-A-LEAK is very heavy and will sink to the lowest point rather quickly. It must be stirred back into suspension, either manually using a pool broom or mechanically with an automated pool cleaner, every 4-6 hours, while maintaining circulation of water. Continue to recirculate water until the leak has stopped.
- Mark level of water in pool and check for 2-3 days, to determine if the leak has stopped.
- After the leak has stopped and given the proper time to cure (24-48 hours), you may return to normal filtration. Sand Filters: set valve to filter and resume normal operation. Backwash out unused FIX-A-LEAK, as required. Other Types: reinstall filter into tank and resume operation. Rinse out unused FIX-A-LEAK from filter, as required.
- Never let cartridges of DE elements be left to dry before they are cleaned.
- Treatment can be repeated, if necessary.
