Does Flex Tape work?

We’ve seen the as seen on TV commercials. Water leaks, they grab a piece of flex tape, and like magic the water leak is stopped instantly. Unfortunately after his grandpa died, W was going through some emotional issues and cut a hole in the pool. So I had to try something to stop the leak. Did Flex Tape work? Let’s find out…

J W Miller says:

A few things that would greatly assist you and this application are as follows: 1) Your patch is much too big. The more patch that is there, the more patch that the water has to work loose. Make sense?, 2) Your patch is the wrong shape. It has sharp corners and edges. Same principle applies as in #1. Water will be able to work on sharp corners and edges much easier than if your patch was, let’s say, round= correct shape of a pool patch that’s inside the pool. Outside it wouldn’t matter, and 3) when applying the patch, start directly in the center, and work outward. It also helps if you, or someone else, will hold something hard and flat on the opposite side of where you are applying the patch, to give you something solid to press against.
I guarantee that doing a pool patch, using these tips, will allow your patch to hold up much longer than if you didn’t use them.

This stuff works excellent! yes it does not work very well under water but once you prep the area and apply and let it sit for 24 to 48 hours to achieve full bond it works great! I did a temp fix on my above ground pool on 2 large tears and it worked perfectly, now I also used a can of clear flex seal spray as I felt it could add extra sealing and it did! I did the 2nd patch without the clear flex seal spray and it also worked perfectly!

that’s not flex rape dummie

Ciara Chacon says:

No it does not work on above ground pool tried it . It sucks

Phil Swift says:

I hate it when people say it doesn´t work when they don´t even know how to put tape on something the proper way.
Usually, these people leave lumps on the tape, so essentially the tape doesn´t do it´s full job because the lumps create holes in which leaks are possible. Fucking dumbasses

PokéSuFan says:

regular duct tape still works 100% better

Why is it white, it’s black in the commercial

crystle sandridge says:

I had holes in the bottom and the tape worked on most of them. still had a leak from a hole near the seam. I drained it since there was only about a foot of water and going to put on outside of liner as well.

Jim Dandy says:

I had the exact same result when I tried to use flex tape to patch a pinhole leak in a pool. It would not stick underwater and ended up leaking even on the outside. Get the $10 vinyl pool repair kit at Wal-Mart which is cheaper and actually works underwater.

Charles Flaherty says:

Mitchell Williams says:

I got the white Flex tape as well work perfect for me and mine was at the bottom of the pool I did it under water 2 weeks later still no leak

James Zapata says:

Flex tape. The lower u place the tape the more pressure on the tape. On tv they put it on a bucket. No pressure. On tv they put a hole in the upper s part of the pool. Put the tape On the bottom side where the pressure greater.

And that’s why they said no wrinkles
