Pool company closed the pool and covered it with our mesh safety cover about 2 weeks ago that had been in the shed. Today I noticed that there is a hole in the cover that is large enough for leaves and very small animals to fall through. I'm guessing that a mouse chewed through it.
Any suggestions on what to do? I don't want to leave it and end up with a bunch of dead mice and leaves in the pool. I recently was laid off, so I'd prefer not to go through the expense of buying a new one right now.
I was thinking of buying some flexible mesh and a curved needle and sewing a patch on it. The hole is close enough to the edge that I could do that, laying on my stomach.
Thoughts? Should I plan on buying a new cover for next winter. This is the cover's 8th winter. TIA.
