Our industrial grade liner is tough, but mistakes happen. Sometimes chips, gouges, or rust can appear when moving the Modpool, or through usual wear and tear.
Repairing the liner yourself is often quickest and cheapest. The following steps will provide a water-proof seal with paint.
- 80 Grit Sandpaper
- Gravel Guard - black textured, from any reliable brand
If the exterior of your Modpool is not black. Please request spray can of your color at "firstname.lastname@example.org". Please know your finish will not be textured unless fine gravel is applied at the epoxy stage
- Marine Epoxy - from any reliable brand
- 4 Rags
- Paint mixing stick
Stage 1: Prepare the Area
- Use a wet rag to clean the spot that needs repair. Then dry it with another rag
- Sand down any rust on the surrounding liner. Also sand down any exposed metal
- Clean it again with wet and dry rags
Stage 2: Apply the Epoxy
- Epoxy can be a skin and eye irritant. Wear gloves and eye protection
- On a piece of cardboard, pour and mix the marine epoxy with the mixing stick
- Apply the marine epoxy to the liner with the mixing stick
- Flatten the epoxy with your finger (glove on). Make sure the edges of the liner have been overlapped by the epoxy.
Don't worry about any white epoxy smudges. This can be painted over later.
If you are using a different color paint (non-textured) you can add fine gravel into the surface of the epoxy. This is optional, and not necessary
- Let this cure for 4 days.
It can be exposed to the elements during this time
Stage 3: Painting
- After the epoxy has cured for 4 days, smoothen it with the sandpaper
- Use a wet rag to wipe away the sanding dust. Then dry it with the other rag
- Spray the black textured Gravel Guard over the epoxy (choose a dry day for this).
Apply 3 coats while waiting 1 hour in between.
If your exterior color is different than black, please use the can you received from us
- Let it dry for 2 days.
After this, you should have a fully sealed and painted repair patch
