Fix-a-leak

  • Is a blended concentrated material designed to seal leaks in virtually any material
  • Can be applied for leaks in the shell and works equally well in plumbing
  • Will seal holes 3mm in diameter
  • Will form a permanent seal

 

A 1 litre bottle can handle up to 80 000 litre pool

Do not use in excess of 1 litre per 18 000 litre water

 

DIRECTIONS

    * Shake Well Before Using *

  • Bypass FILTER MEDIA before adding Fix-a-leak to water.

Sand filters: set filter valve to recirculate or by pass

Other types: remove cartridges from cartridge filter, Diatomaceous Earth elements from filter tank.  Then 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 or weir.  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 (Kreepy Krauly or Barracuda) every 4-6 hrs. During 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 hrs.) you may return to normal filtration.

Sand Filters: Backwash out unused Fix-a-leak as required, then rinse the pool.

Set filter valve to filter and resume normal operation. 

 

Other Types: Rinse out unused Fix-a-leak from filter as required.

Reinstall cartridge filter into tank and resume operation. 

 

*NOTE* Never let cartridges of DE elements be left to dry before they are cleaned.

  • Treatment can be repeated if necessary.

*NOTE* Suction Line Leaks

Suction 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. Until the leak has stopped.  When this has been achieved, gradually increase pressure to 15-25 psi. 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 hair dye or ketchup bottle.  
Allow a minimum of 48 hrs. To cure before starting up circulation.

PRECAUTION: Keep out of reach of children.
Can cause severe eye and skin irritation.  Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.  Harmful or fatal is swallowed.  Avoid contamination of food.  
Rinse empty container thoroughly with water and discard it.

FIRST AID:  In case of contact, immediately flush eyes or skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.  For eyes, contact a physician.  Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse.  If swallowed, drink milk, egg whites, gelatine solution.  If these are not available, drink large quantities of water.  Call a physician immediately.

NOTE: Fix-a-leak has been thoroughly field-tested under various weather conditions, and has proven to be effective in sealing leaks.
Fix-a-leak doubles as an excellent preventative maintenance aid, as it coats all surfaces that it comes in contact with, it cuts down on formation of rust and corrosion.

Neither Fix-A-leak nor its agents assume responsibility for the performance of this material.
