Hello awesome community!

My pool cover is 4 years old and has multiple leaks starting this year.
There are 2 long fold lines along the cover and all leaks are along these fold lines. The 2 folds basically form an X and right in the center is the biggest leak.

Ideally I'd like to repair it but repair patches are usually 2' x 4'. I think I would however need patch the whole length of those folds, about 15' each.
So ideally I would need a roll of repair fabric.

Does anyone have tips on where I could find a repair roll and how to apply?
I'd hate to replace a 4 year old cover but also hate to keep patching it over and over.

Thanks!
Tim

Look at tarp repair tape. Duct tape will also work but tarp repair tape comes in wider rolls...


I have patched a bunch of tears in my Meyco solid cover and the patches have lasted years.
