    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 Not impressed This product did not work the way intended. It deflated half way through the season. and often shifted in the pool. Certainly there is something better that companies can come up with.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with quality First winter with new air pillow, it lasted until April when it spontaneously popped and deflated before we could uncover the pool. It was a complete waste of money as the purpose was to be able to keep water off the cover, especially during rainy springs. We will attempt to patch but I would not buy another one.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well if used correctly I've been using these 4x8 pool pillows for years. I've never had a problem with them deflating or going flat. As a rule I take a new pillow in the fall, mark it with the date and only use it for two winters then throw it away. Pillow should only be inflated half-way. Pillow is not intended to hold the winter cover up to keep water from accumulating. The intent of the pillow is to absorb the pressure from the ice as the water freezes so it doesn't blow out your pool walls. Proper winter cover installation is to put the cover on over the pillow and allow it to settle to the water surface around the pillow. The cover should be secured around the pool perimeter with a cable and clips so it has enough slack so the cover can rest on as much of the pool water surface as possible. You then add water on the winter cover around the pillow after installation to hold it in place. You may need to drain some water off the cover before it freezes but you should try to keep about 2" of water on the cover just before it freezes up for the winter.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT Rugged! We bought 2 of the 4x4 size pool pillows. They lasted maybe 3 weeks. We had a big windstorm here in MO and the next morning the pillow bulges had disappeared from the pool. Also, these pillows don't raise the cover level enough to keep water collecting, if that's what you're buying them for. We have a 24' pool. After lowering the water the 18" advised depth, we would have had to buy 8 or more of these to sufficiently raise the liner. The pool in the picture shown does not have the water level lowered. Disappointed. Would have gotten better performance out of a couple tire inner tubes.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed I bought 3 of these air pillows and they were in the pool 1 week and the middle one has already deflated. To much of a pain to reopen pool to replace. Will not buy these again.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4x8 didn't hold air I purchased this a week prior to closing the pool and delivery was quick. I didn't blow it up until closing day but when I did, it would not hold air. Filled it up and within 10 min it was flat. I had to run to the neighborhood pool store to grab one. I contacted customer service and apparently I'm stuck with this. No help.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bigger than I thought. I bought 2 but only needed to use one. They are HUGE! Not sure about the heavy duty part yet, will let you know when we open the pool next year. Seems a little light weight, but again, not sure yet. For the price it is a huge pillow and perfect for our 15x30 foot pool.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from might have a problem here... Closed pool mid-October (about a month ago) and they've already lost a great deal of air (4 bags total). I was extremely cautious when filling being aware of puncture points/items around, but that was a waste of time. If they lose any more air, I'm in trouble. 26'x32' pool, the four bags going directly down the center with 20" in between. Held in place with 5-50 cord. The only reason I give three stars is because of the supplier. Fast shipping, always a pleasure buying pool equipment. Definitely my new supplier.

      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.
