    Tear in automatic safety cover

    I've never owned a pool before, bought a house this year that had a pool installed in 2004. This website has been a great resource in helping take care of it so far, thank you! It is a Pacific Pools pool and automatic safety cover. One side has a rip or tear in the material that holds the cover into the track. I'm sure that it was there when I bought the house but I didn't catch it. I can't tell if it has gotten worse throughout the season. I started mainly keeping the pool covered when not in use, but having been using the cover less lately as I'm concerned that each cycle of on/off will increase the risk of lengthening the tear. Couple of questions:
    1) Can something like this be repaired, or is a new cover going to be needed?
    2) Does anyone know a ballpark cost for this?
    3) Anyone in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area have a recommendation for a company to call and service it? The pool and cover were installed by a company called Aqua-Clear.

    Thanks for your help, pics below.
