Try this....
You will need;
Pool liner patch kit
Goggles
Body weight to hold you down while doing repair under water.

Most liner repair kits have instructions on wet applications. Cut a piece of the liner kit fabric to cover the entire hole plus at least 1/2" around. You will need to dive in with a mask/goggles to see the hole. Put a thin layer of glue on the patch and spread evenly.. Fold in half on the glue side and go down to the bottom of the pool. Note...The weights will help you stay at the bottom for this part of the repair.. QUICKLY!!! while holding the patch next to the hole. open the patch and place on the hole and push firmly for a few seconds. Come up and place your foot on the patch and hold for 3 minutes or so. Should work...It took me several times to master this technique when I had a hole at the bottom of my pool... Caution!!! You don't need a lot of weight to stay at the bottom. Test from light to heavy until you think you have enough to do the repair..
Good luck and hope this will help you!! If this works for you, please rate!

Swimming pool


NOT from Outside.
If Possible empty pool now with a Controlled drain...
Peel back liner and clean area real good. Sand or steel wool to remove rust. Then Paint using one of those "Rubber" based leak sealing paints found in your local DIY warehouse store.
Then place a piece of Thin sheet metal against the wall after paint dried. Replace liner, coping strip, ridgidizing metal bar, and top rail.
Refill.
or if you're lucky...
Patch the liner. When all is dry, use 3 applications of Epoxy Putty like JB Weld. Place a small covering over the DRY area with the hole. If possible, force some into the hole.
Once dried and cured, place a 2nd patch, slightly larger over it, and then repeating a 3rd time, again slightly larger.
Not as good as First method, but may still work?
If left unattended...
The water pressure in the pool, will push the liner right thru that hole - like a hernia, and will burst thru releasing all your water and possibly collapsing the pool? This will be an "Uncontrolled" drain vs. the controlled drain above.
I guess you can choose which way you want to drain your pool?

What to check when your refrig. cools ok but leaks water from freezer


The cause of that drip is going to be a blocked defrost drain in the freezer and the water from the defrost is pooling up in the freezer then when it can't hold anymore it's dripping through the vent in the ceiling of the refrigerator onto the shelfs. By removing the back wall of the freezer you could find the drain on the bottom of the freezer coil. By GENTLY peircing that frozen drain at a 45 degree angle until a small hole is formed in the built up ice it could be totally flushed using warm water once a small opening is made in the ice in the drain.

I just put up a intex metal frame pool and i noticed water leaking at the bottom I can't find the hole how can i find it and fix it I had just bought the pool


Well there are two solutions.
1st: fill the pool with water. (yes it will be leaking)
Get a small bowl and put some dish soap in it.
Next tape a sponge or a rag (or something you can apply the soap with) and scrub down the sides with the soap. Because the soap reacts with water and releases oxygen (or Co2, I'm not sure) when it does, it will bubble up and reveal where the leak is.
I think that's the most reliable way. Another way is only reliable if the leak is large. You can make everyone get out of the pool and listen very carefully at each side. If the leak is large enough you'll hear a sizzling.
I think that the first method would be more efficient, but the second sounds like it might do the job as well and would be easier.
To fix the hole, I believe that you'll have to fix it with a patch kit. The link below lists a few different options. It's essential to have a patch kit when you have a vinyl above ground pool because it's incredibly easy to get a hole in the side. I'd suggest buying a quality patch kit to insure that the patch lasts. You don't wanna waste the 120+ dollars on annoying recurring holes in the side.

How do you fix a leak to a 15x48 swimming pool without emptying all the water? it's a small leak on a seam near the ground.pool has been up a week & no leak, until tonight?


They make underwater patch kits that are very simple to use. You cut a patch and apply glue, fold the patch in half with the glue faceing in. take it to the leak and slowley unfold against the hole. smooth out and make sure edges are sealed down. Keep pressure on the patch as instructed on package. Then let cure. Good luck.

Water collecting in the bottom of freezer.


There's a small drain in the bottom of the freezer compartment. It will clog up from time to time and cause water to pool up, then run wherever it can. So, find that little drain (small hole about the size of a dime or so) and un-clog it. you can do this with hot water and a turkey baster!

Water loss in pool, but no hole in liner


The only problem is that ther is a leak in the liner. Generally at the bottom where a rock or debris has made a small hole. They can be patched but the pool will need to be drained. Call your local pool service company.

Haier AC HWR10xc6


Haier Air Conditioners do not have a drain hole or hose like most A/Cs. This problem can easily be solved by carefully drililng about an 1/8 or 1/4 inch hole in the bottom outside edge directly on the metal frame, around the cooling fins.... This will elt the water drain out...if you when outside and looked in while it was spitting you would see the water pooling up in there. Haier expects us to mount these units at an ungodly angle to drain the water, but drilling a small hole will help (really anywhere in that bottom plate would work since the whole bottom is a "drain pan"

Water leaking frigidaire frs23h5as


yes remove the rear panel in the freezer where you see the drain hole. Clear the ice from the drain hole. It will take a while for the water to start to drain because the ice is deep in the insulation. A small tube is helpful to draw some hot water in and stick in in the drain hole and squirt the hot water down in the hole.
