    Relieve Ice Expansion in Your Above-Ground Pool During Winter Months

    These durable, heavy-duty air pillows are made of thick 16-gauge vinyl and sit below your winter cover on the water’s surface. Their presence prevents the freezing water from forming a single sheet as it expands across your above-ground pool, preventing stress to the pool’s walls.

    If the cover is tightly secured, the air pillows can also hold the winter cover in a tent-like shape that keeps rain, leaves and snow at the pool’s outer edges where it can be easily removed. To use, simply inflate the air pillows using a shop vac or air pump and place them on the pool’s surface. Most pools will need several pillows for maximum protection; the pillows are available in several shapes and sizes to accommodate all pool sizes.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I've tried these pillows for probably 5 years or so and have come to the conclusion not to waste my money. They always develop holes and go flat - - think this is from all the wind we have. Since ice expands when it freezes I have begun using gallon liquid chlorine plastic jugs. I fill them about 1/2 full of pool water & throw them in so they float around. Being filled only 1/2 full allows for the expansion when it is cold enough for ice to form. Then in the spring I remove, empty the water back into the pool, and dispose of the gallon jugs. I usually use about 8 - 10 gallon jugs for our 15,000 gallon above ground pool.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from These worked horribly for me I've bought at least 4 of these air pillows and they wouldn't even last 1 season. I followed the instructions to not inflate them fully but in every case they completely deflated within weeks of placing them under my cover. My pool is a 15x30 above-ground with a standard cover. This past year, instead of using these pillows (snce they wouldn't hold air for more than an hour) I used an old inner-tube (not from a car, but one of those $10 tubes that you find at Walmart) and it held up through the whole winter (which was really nasty this year) and did exactly what these pillows were SUPPOSED to do. The best part is it still has all of it's air and I can use it again next fall.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Large Air Pillow Leak I purchased 10 of the large pillows (4X15') and 4 of the 10 has small leaks and inflated in approximately 1-2 weeks. This is a pain since you have to uncover the pool to add air to the pillow. Removed one that was leaking and leak checked with soap solution and found many leaks along the seams (small). I was expecting the fill valve to be the problem, but they seemed fine on all of them. Appears to be a quality problem that they leak along the seams and they were not overinflated! They are working but would be much better if they did not have to be filled with air every few weeks.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than the ring I used last year I bought the 4x8 air pillow and I can't tell you how much better it worked compared to the ring float I used last year. For one thing it was easier to anchor and keep in place so when it came to putting the cover on it didn't move around or cause the cover to get hung up on it either. Last year the ring float deflated half way through winter so we will see how this holds up. It is more durable than the ring too. I inflated it halfway and I read somewhere to put duct tape over the flap(I guess to keep it inflated). So far so good!!

      Why do I need Air Pillows on my aboveground pool?
      When your pool surface freezes solid during the winter, the expansion of the ice sheet can put enormous pressure on the walls. Air Pillows break up the ice sheet, so that it doesn't freeze solid all the way across the pool, reducing this outward pressure.

      Air pillows also protect the vinyl liner, should your pool develop a leak in the vinyl liner during winter. Solid ice sheets that form above a falling water level can be held stationary by the outward ice pressure, until it melts slightly and drops quickly, which can damage vinyl on the wall, sliced by a sharp and heavy ice sheet.
      How many Air Pillows do I need for my pool?
      You don't need to completely cover the surface of your aboveground pools in air pillows / ice equalizer pillows, but you probably need more than one, unless you are winterizing a very small pool.
      Which size Air Pillows should I use for my pool?
      You can use most any size pool air pillow, unless your pool is very small. If you use the smaller air pillows, like the 4'x4' or the 4'x8', you will need more than if you use the larger 4'x15' air pillows.
       
      How do I inflate the pool cover Air Pillow?
      Air pillows have large valves, identical to the type used on inground pool water tubes. Inflating by mouth would be exhausting; much easier to use an electrical air blower, or wet/dry vac to inflate your air pillows.
      Can I use enough Air Pillows to allow rain water to run-off the edge of my pool cover?
      You can, if you use enough air pillows and pull the cover tight enough around the edge of the pool. Using cover clips or cable weights may be needed to keep the cover pulled taut over the air pillows. If you have enough air pillows in the pool, and you keep the cover pulled taut, you could enjoy a winter without having to manually pump off rain water and snow melt. Even falling leaves will simply blow off your pool cover!
      How long do pool Air Pillows last?
      Air pillows can last for many years. They are made of 16ga vinyl, and being under the protection of your pool cover, they rarely develop holes or splits. Storing your air pillows in a cool, dry indoor location during the swimming season will help prolong their lifespan.
      Can I repair pool Air Pillows?
      If your air pillow develops a hole, it can be patched with any vinyl patch kit; the type used to repair vinyl liners or inflatable pool toys.
