Swimming Pool Step Repair Products

What is the Problem?

  • Is the inground pool step gasket leaking?
  • Is the pool step cracked?
  • Is the step crack the result of a void?

A step gasket's flexibility becomes compromised over time in a chlorinated environment. The plasticizers can migrate from the vinyl liner or the gasket, making the material brittle and causing a crack to appear. And if the inground pool step has been leaking for a period of time, the fill material which was originally there to stabilize the step can wash away, creating a void and weakening the step area.

AquaBond® has the right products for any kind of inground swimming pool step repair. All are designed to provide a permanent flexible seal to stop water loss.

The best product for the job is determined by the extent of the problem. Many leaks and cracks can be fixed underwater without draining the pool. However, sometimes the best solution is obtained by lowering the water level below the repair area.
