Please check that the air valve on the pillow is completely closed. This valve can open and will cause the Air Pillow to deflate. In order for your air pillow to absorb the pressure of the ice expanding, it has to remain soft. You should inflate the air pillow to about 60% of its capacity to allow for compression. You should also place two strips of duct tape over the air valve to ensure the pillow doesn’t deflate over the winter. The air pillow will be more effective if it remains in the center of the pool. Keep the pillow in the center to help evenly distribute ice and snow.
Additionally, to make sure it stays in place you must use the grommets on the pillow to attach string to it. Tie the pieces of string to the top ledges of your pool leaving them a bit loose. If you tie them too tight, the grommets on the pillow can tear or the string can break letting the pillow float freely in the pool. Follow the steps below to prevent the valve from popping open.
