Can You Fix a Leak Underwater?

Yes, it is possible to repair cracks and leaks without draining the swimming pool with our quality underwater pool leak repair products. The AquaBond underwater leak sealants and adhesives can be mixed, applied and cured underwater!

But first ask these questions about the leaks and cracks in the swimming pool:  

  • What is causing the leaks?
  • How severe are the cracks?
  • Are there issues with the pool deck sinking or lifting?
  • Can you determine the exact location of the underwater leaks or cracks?
  • Do you know the general area of the leaks but can’t determine the precise spots where they are occurring?
  • How much do you want to invest in the pool leak detection process?

With the right high-quality products, many swimming pool leaks and cracks can successfully and economically be repaired underwater. That’s why so many pool professionals depend on AquaBond. They know from experience that repairs made with AquaBond underwater adhesives and sealants far outlast those made with other underwater concrete crack repair products on the market.

AquaBond Underwater Pool Repair Products

AquaFlex Underwater Sealant seals leaks, tears, thin cracks and spider cracks in gunite, shotcrete, fiberglass and vinyl — all without draining the pool! It creates a long-lasting, flexible, waterproof seal around returns, drains, skimmers, jets, gutters, grates, light niches, tiles, steps, coping, cracks, expansion joints and other trouble spots. Because AquaFlex can be applied to wide surface areas on pool floors or side walls, it’s also a great product to use when you only know the general area in which an underwater leak is occurring.

AquaFlex spreads like warm butter and is able to deliver a strong, flexible seal down to 1/5000 thickness. It’s available in clear or white to make color matching unnecessary. Apply with our patent-pending polyethylene film application process.

Underwater Repair Adhesive is the ideal hybrid epoxy adhesive for repairing swimming pools and spas underwater – without draining the pool! Extremely durable and able to withstand rigorous conditions, it bonds a wide range of materials including ABS, PVC, flexible PVC, fiberglass, metal, glass, ceramic, fabric composites, wood, plastics and concrete. Whether you use it to repair coping, skimmers, hoses and main drains – or to secure swimming pool handrails or rocks in a water feature – this amazing, all-purpose “Wet or Dry” adhesive provides an easy no-mess application. Apply with our patent-pending polyethylene film application process.

The type and extent of the pool leaks or cracks you’re experiencing will determine whether or not an underwater leak repair product is the right option for you. Sometimes the best solution really does require lowering the water level below the repair area.
