Part # PL0194
Place this sturdy air pillow under your above ground pool cover to protect your pool from the pressure caused by freezing water. As water freezes, it expands and presses against pool walls but an air pillow will absorb some of this pressure and help to protect your pool throughout the winter. By lifting up the center of the winter cover, this 4' x 4' pillow will also help reduce the amount of rain, snow and debris that collects on top. Made of strong 16-gauge vinyl with plastic grommets on two corners. Easy to secure with either rope or string (not included).

What size winter air pillow is recommended for a 24 foot above ground pool?
Hi. There is not really a specific size pillow for a specific size pool. A 4' x 4' Pillow is okay to be used with a 24' Round pool.
Hi there I have a above ground pool I was thinking of ordering a pillow but my question is do I really need it I live in Vegas the weather here is not too cold
Hi Martha, many people use air pillows even if the water does not freeze as the pillow also lifts the cover in the center which assists in draining any water from pooling on the cover. So you don't have to have the air pillow but it may prolong the life of the cover.
Every year we use the pillows under our cover and every year some of them deflate even thought the plugs are closed tightly. How can we prevent this from happening. It seems like money wasted if they are not going to stay inflated. Should we duct tape the plugs shut?
Hello, Lori. Sorry to hear about the difficulties with the Air Pillow. Make sure you haven't over inflated the pillow. Inflate the pillow to only 60% to 80% of its capacity to allow for compression and center the pillow in the middle of the pool.
I have an above ground pool and I've been told that I need to use an air pillow underneath my winter pool cover. What does the air pillow do?
An air pillow helps to attract freezing water as it expands and relieves the pool walls from the stress of water expansion.Air pillows also help reduce excess water, leaves, debris and snow on your winter cover.
