Hi, It's about time to close the pool, and I need to buy new air pillows because the 2 I bought last year didn't last the entire winter. Unfortunately, I see the same air pillows all over the internet, and they all have terrible reviews. What's up with that? Why is it so hard to find a quality product? Does anyone know of any higher quality pillow that someone sells, or alternative methods?

Also, I drained the pool a little last year but not below the skimmer and used a skimmer cover. Well, it leaked until the water was below the skimmer. Seems like the same situation as the air pillows - nobody makes one that isn't junk. Should I just drain below the skimmer, or is there a quality skimmer cover out there?
