    Welcome to TFP.

    There have been a thread or two where people have used rope or ratchet straps to repair a broken pool strap. Either should work pretty well.

    Yes Ive seen that done but only on round metal frame pools which hold the poles close to the pool. My pool is rectangular and the poles are at a 45 degree angle and the straps were attached to the botom of the liner then held by the support poles anyone with a rectangular intex metal frame pool have any advice

    Do you think that you could repair the straps that broke? Possibly with glue and stiching? Those straps look like they hold back a lot of force and just the fact that they broke shows the forces involved. It is probably time for a new pool.
