* Shake Well Before Using*
Use 8 oz. per 1,000 gallons for minor leaks. A second bottle can be added for larger leaks.
*Shake Well Before Using*
*NOTE* Never allow cartridges or DE elements to dry before they are cleaned. Rinse clean with water. It is advisable, if your spa is a foam insulated type and has been leaking for a long period of time:
Once you determine the leak has stopped, drain your tub. Properly wipe down the spa with a wet cloth, nothing abrasive. Allow to dry for 4-5 days to all FIX A LEAK to properly cure.
*NOTE* Suction Line Leaks
Suction Leaks are usually known by air mixed with the water at the return fittings.
In most cases suction lines only leak water when the filter pump is shut off. Normal Circulation will simply draw FIX-A-LEAK away from the leak and if the pump is shut off the material will simply not get to the leak. You must reverse the flow of water, to force the material through the leak under pressure. Preferably 5-10 psi. until the leak has stopped. When this has been achieved, gradually increase pressure to 15-25 psi. to insure a proper seal.
VERY IMPORTANT: After sealing a suction leak "it" is a must to leave suction off the repaired line for no less than 48 hrs. FIX-A-LEAK requires time to cure and harden.
Miscellaneous Leaks: If you suspect a leak around fittings inside the pool (such as return fittings) lights, skimmer(s) or steps, etc.
Shut down pump. Apply FIX-A-LEAK directly to the leak using a squeeze bottle, similar to a ketchup bottle.
Allow a minimum of 48 hrs. to cure before starting up circulation.
