4 elements in my Hayward de4800 have holes. I thought there was only one (based on the person who closed my pool), but upon taking apart, i found 4 with holes. I looked for a full series of 8 grids and then came across these on ebay..They are basically replacement fabric for the grids - which is funny because I was thinking about how wasteful it would be to throw out all that undamaged plastic just because the cover had a hole Looks like they zip up to close (altho i have a msg out to the seller for clarification). Has anyone ever used these???

Also, I read on the forums here that someone uses a product called water weld and a glue gun. posted here: guide-to-cleaning-and-repairing-a-de-filter-grid-mesh-t36948.html?hilit=grid%20repair
Has anyone else tried this - how long did it last?
