True... duct tape is amazing stuff. Waterproofed many a hole on my surfboards back in the day. Not
to mention a blown radiator hose... of course on my way to the beach to surf... right after my
muffler fell off and my head gasket blew! Damn, that was some night! But at least we caught some
perfect waves in the morning.

Oh I did. But since it only kills the weak ones, the brain cells I have left are quality! ;^)

Duct tape no, staples yes... I'm trying to keep the water *inside the bladder. This is the rectangle
strip of velcro that's glued to the main body of the bladder, not triangle shaped one .

But I don't think duct tape is strong enough.

I'm glad you didn't run for the staple gun (the thought of it made me chuckle so you had to suffer through it to). Penny's idea of the "industrial" velcro is a good one. We keep a pack of it in the camping gear and they are not playing with the term industrial. Good luck.
