After opening my less than one year old pool last season, I noticed considerable wear marks on the stamped concrete (Stampcrete) from the pool cover and the retention straps. The deck is cantilevered and the rubbing on the edge of the deck is wearing the deck considerably. When we closed up for my second winter, the PB suggest putting carpet strips down on the edges of the pool last fall, which I did. However, with the wind, all the strips did was end up in the pool instead of protecting it. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue and what they may have done to prevent this from happening. I think my next step is getting some 2" x 42" foam strips from Grainger and try and secure them with some string using the cover anchors.
