General Directions for using Fix-A-Leak

  • 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. Proper curing requires that the Fix A Leak be allowed to completely dry out, where it has formed a crust at the leak site. 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.


Suction Line Leaks

  • Suction leaks are usually recognized 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 at 5-10 psi, until the leak has stopped. When this has been achieved, gradually restore normal pressure to insure a proper seal.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: After sealing a suction leak "it" is a must to leave suction off the repaired line for no less than 48 hrs. FIX-A-LEAK requires time to cure and harden.

Miscellaneous Leaks

  • If you suspect a leak around fittings inside the pool (such as return fittings) lights, skimmer(s) or steps, etc. 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 hrs. to cure before starting up circulation.
  • Leaks that involve cracks or loose fittings can be subject to expansion and may not be permanently sealed. Leaks over 1/8" in diameter may be too large to be sealed, with this type of product. Pools that are losing major daily amounts of water, over 2" inches per day, may have loss rates too great, for the product to properly cure. Some leaks. because of their size, nature or location, may require a hands-on repair.

Spa or Hot Tub Leaks

  • Bypass Filter before adding FIX-A-LEAK to water.
  • With pump running, add FIX-A-LEAK slowly through skimmer or in front of any other suction intake.
  • FIX-A-LEAK is very heavy and will sink to the lowest point rather quickly. It must be stirred back into suspension every 4-6 hours, while maintaining the circulation.
  • Continue to recirculate water, until the leak has stopped.
  • After the leak has stopped, give it the proper time to cure (24-48 hours). Then, you may return to normal filtration.
  • Treatment can be repeated, if necessary.
  • Never allow cartridges or DE elements to dry before cleaning. Rinse clean with water.
  • If your spa is a foam insulated type and has been leaking for a long period of time, it is advisable to drain your tub, after determining that the leak has stopped. Thoroughly, wipe down the spa with a soft, non-abrasive wet cloth. Allow to dry for 4-5 days, to allow FIX A LEAK to properly cure.
