    Air Pillows 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. Pool pillows prevent the freezing water from forming a single sheet as it expands across your above-ground pool, preventing stress to the pool’s walls.

    Pool pillows raise the winter cover into a tent-like shape to keep rain, leaves and snow at the pool’s outer edges where it can be more easily removed. To use pool pillows, simply inflate with a shop vac or air pump and place pool pillows in the center of the pool, under the winter cover. Larger pools will need several pillows for maximum protection; grommets allow you to connect several pool pillows together with rope or twine.

      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 during winter. Solid ice sheets that form can damage vinyl liners as the edges thaw into sharp spikes. 
      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 or pool 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 pool 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. Cover Clips and/or Wall Bags may be needed to keep the cover pulled taut over the pool wall. With enough air pillows in the pool, you could enjoy a winter without having to manually pump off rain water and snow melt. Even falling leaves will 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.
