Leak due to crack in top stairs

Postby dougvr » Tue 06 May, 2008 07:13

Vinyl lined pool with what looks like some kind of plastic stairs stepping into pool. Top stair has a visible crack. Pool guy put something on it to seal last summer, but it looks like it cracked again. How can I seal it for a month before I fix it properly?

lcrack in fiberglass stairs...what to use to patch?

Postby dougvr » Tue 06 May, 2008 20:55

I have a crack about 7 inches long and 1/4" wide on the top step of fiberglass stairs leading into the shallow end. ....there is some type of puddy there from the last patch job. Is there any temporary "wet" product I can apply under water to stop it until I get it fixed for real?

The putty is usually a two part epoxy such as Epoxy Bond or A&B. This should seal it up until you can fix it. It sets underwater.
