This is my first year with an 24ft round above ground pool and it has not been an easy first year. It first started about 2 months into summer and our pool was leaking. Figured out it was tiny holes that were created by ants. The thing is, we have a pool cove and one of those pool liner pads under the liner as well that is supposed to prevent ants and rocks from getting to the liner... so how are the ants getting to the liner? Its so freaking frustrating because as soon as we patched the already 11 holes, more appeared! We are replacing the liner next spring but I want to get a head start and get some ideas on how to prevent the holes in the new one. Hubby spread some ant killer before the first holes which obviously didn't help and after patching the first holes he spread more ant killer around the pool and more holes appeared.... what are we doing wrong? Any advice would be helpful!
