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
* Shake Well Before Using *
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.
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.
*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.
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.
