I have a 18 x 33 oval pool. I need to order air pillows to supplement the pool cover that was recently purchased. How many pillows will I need to order and which sizes are optimal?
Hello, You can either use a 4'x8' or a 4'x15' air pillow for that size pool.
How do you inflate the pillow?the place you put air in seems closed uo?Help.thanks!
Hello Myrtle- The fastest way to inflate this air pillow would be to use a Shop vac with the air flow reversed.
how do you inflate air pillow>do we have to cut out the hole where the air goes in?
These pillows have a plug that you use to inflate them. No cutting needed.
What size of pool pillow is needed for a 24 foot round pool?
Hi Kendra, We would suggest a 4' x 15' air pillow for a 24' round above ground 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.

Pros: Perfect size for oval pool
Cons: Will not hold air
I recently purchased a 4 x 15 ft pool pillow from INYO POOLS prior to winterizing my pool. At first I loved the pillow. Perfect fit for my 12 x 24 ft oval pool. I filled it with air, tied it off and covered it snuggly with the pool cover I bought last year from INYO POOLS. It was awesome. But after less than 2 weeks the pillow lost nearly all the air. I refilled it with air and recovered. Now 2 weeks later it has lost all air again. I requested a new/replacement pillow from INYO POOLS and they promptly sent a new pillow to me at no cost (that was terrific). Sad to say, I had the exact same problem with the second pillow. The second pillow did hold air a few days longer but it went flat as well. I refilled it two more times before I gave up. When I uncovered my pool this spring both pillows were resting on the bottom of the pool. I like INYO POOLS a lot, and I will order form them again. But I will not be buying any more pool pillows. I will go back to using those extra large beach balls that are sold at the local Food Lion store. They hold air nicely all winter long.
(1 out of 5 stars) 4'x 15' pillow is poor quality

Pros: Fits well in a 12'x 24' pool
Cons: Doesn't hold air. Poor quality.
Opened my pool in 2015, the pillow was low on air. Reinstalled it in Sept. 2015. Flat by December. Past warranty. Bought a new one in December. Flat by February. Inyo sent me a new one under warranty. That one is now flat.(5/1/2016). This is a poor quality product. People complained about the grommets in 2011. Nothing was changed. I am very tired of uncovering my pool 3 times during the winter. Inyo needs to find another supplier. This product should not be sold!

We put the pillow in the pool, covered it wrapped it tight and within 4 to 5 days the pillow was flat. I will not know why till May when we uncvover it... Very sad it was a really good idea..??

I thought this was a very good idea, until we installed and it went FLAT. Apparently there is a small leak it took about 5 days to go completely flat. I have already sealed the pool with the wrap that I also purchased from Inyo. It seams to be working well. I wont know if there is a hole or the plug leaked until next spring....... :(

This product is very week. I used two of them in the fall of 2014, under my pool cover to assist with water run off. Both were flat within 1 week. I would like my $ back but I can't get to them until spring of 2015.

Pros: It still worked.
Cons: It's build **really** cheap and no QC.
This product does have some issues. The filler opening was malformed as the "slug" was not removed. I had to carefully cut this out with a knife, (btw while out in the cold). It only has two groments for tie off. We had a little wind and it ripped one side completely off. Fortunately it still held air and will do it's job. You get what you pay for.
