    Afternoon all.

    Simple as that really! I tried yesterday, and it didn't appear to work!! Could be because:

    a) there is more than one hole (Doh)
    :rolleyes: Rubber solution and bike repair kits just don't stick to pvc
    c) hmmmm......

    I know one came with the pool, but I've no idea where it is!!!!!:blush:

    Gaffer tape does work fine.
    I've seen it done, it looks a bit Wayne & Waynetta, but sod it! It works!

    Parky?? 27-28 degrees here yesterday, and much hotter in the sun!! Even today it never got below about 24 degrees!!

    I actually checked out some patches c/o ebay - at £1.49 I thought it was worth the risk!!
