    Solar cover rip

    hello all! I have a couple of small rips in my solar cover at the edges. Is there anything I can do to fix? If not, I was thinking about cutting out the rip so it doesn't continue to tear down the cover. Its about 6 inches right now and has been getting worse over time. Let me know your thoughts!

    Is this the bubble-wrap stuff? Good quality duct tape will hold for about a month at a time.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
