Default Patched the hole in our liner

Major PITA.
Only ONE supplier locally with the glue needed to bond epdm (or permalon), and its a gallon for $25, almost half the cost of a new replacement liner!

When you put the stuff on a epdm patch, it curls up like mad. We couldn;t get it to just stick properly to the preparred hole, so I tacked it down, and then put duct tape over the whole thing so the edges would tack down properly. I just left the duct tape over it.. it can come off naturally. (Its black, so it blends in with the liner anyway.

2 days later, the leak seems tackled, so we're happy campers.

There is a duck tape patch on my pond that has been on for years.

Due to chipmunk damage we had a fairly large hole (6") to plug on a
vertical wall. We patched w/ a piece of liner and then patched over
that with a larger piece of liner. That was 2 yrs. ago - still holding.
