Hello,
I've got many many holes in my winter cover, big ones in about 4 inches diameter. Can I use duct tape to patch these holes? Anyone used duct tape for this?
And I am wondering what caused these many holes. I just bought the house at the beginning of this year. Never had a pool before. I am guessing rodents or squirrels bite those holes. Any idea?

A waterbag tarp might be. Safety covers should be sent to the manf. for rodent holes. Usually it's mice or rats. Storing the cover in a large, lidded, trash can with wheels or deck box work best.

Thanks, Scott!
I don't even know who the manufacturer is. I think the holes were bitten out by rodents, if they were, when the cover was out covering the pool. I guess I will just use duct tape since there were so many holes that even buying those patches from pool stores is gonna be too expensive.
