The problem:

Pool owners know the problem: After the wintering of the pool, it is dirty in spring, the tarpaulin sunk and only with great effort to pull out of the pool. In addition, the construction, add-on parts or the foil can get expensive damage due to frost. In addition, ice pressure pads must be installed to drain the snow and ice loads in winter.


>> The solution:

The [R] Pool Cushion is simply inflated in autumn (battery blower, bellows or by means of flexible universal adapter - each available here in the SHOP), placed on the pool and stretched with the tarpaulin.

Unlike other manufacturers who combine several small pads, this solution does not create "water pockets", i.e. depressions between the individual pads. The cover is stretched evenly and acts like a roof where environmental influences simply run off.

Choose from various standard sizes or let us customize a cushion especially for your pool. Due to our own production site in Germany, we can produce any format and size for you.

Now with free velcro!

The desire of the customers was: The pool cushion must be able to be fastened in the pool somehow.

We listened and found a solution. Instead of eyelets (these would tear out), we add a high-quality Velcro fastener to our customers in every package. This is self-adhesive and can be cut and applied individually.

The instructions are included in the delivery. Two variants are recommended:

  • Crosswise, top, centered on the pool cushion
  • At all four ends, but at least 50 cm from the tip

...or you combine both variants.

Dimensions velcro closure: 5 x 70 cm

Best of all: The velcro strip is a free upgrade from [R] SHOP24!

Technical Data:

  • Foil: PE (particularly robust and tear-resistant), transparent, 100 µm
  • Inner layer: PE film, transparent, 100 µm

Standard dimensions (uninflated) in neuen Shop CoverMio:

On the pictures and in the video you can see the pool cushion 2.000 x 2.500 mm in a steel wall pool with a diameter of 5.000 mm.

You should know that:

The volume of the filled XXL air cushion changes due to temperature changes (winter/summer). At warm ambient temperature it expands, at colder temperatures the air contracts.

Especially with falling outside temperatures in autumn and winter it may be necessary to refill the XL pool cushion with air.

In spring the air will expand again and you can let some of it out. However, the XL air cushion is designed for these changes and cannot be damaged by them.

We explain the correct filling possibilities with el. air pump, or e.g. vacuum cleaner with blowing function, foot pump etc. in our application video for the correct operation of the valve.

Send us a picture, a drawing or the dimensions of the pool and we will make you an offer for a pool cushion especially built for your pool.

You should know that:

Our SMART valve has an automatic opening and closing function during filling, provided that the supplied filling adapter is used.

This can also be deactivated manually to allow filling e.g. with an electric air pump, a vacuum cleaner with blow function or similar.

To do this, press in the blue cross and turn it clockwise to open the valve. When placing the pool cushion on the floor this is not possible when pressure is applied from above.

Therefore, hold the valve by the edge from behind so that the spring of the valve has free play.

    Our oval pool has a size of 4 × 8 m
    What size do I need for the pool and how expensive would the pool cushion be?
    Best regards,

      Hello Guido. Depending on the raw material, we can manufacture pool cushions up to a width of 2m. Theoretically, the length is not limited. But in terms of handling, a maximum length of 8 m is recommended. In your case, the solution would be: use 2x a pool cushion with 2 × 8 m. You can order these directly from us (later also in the shop with 2 × 6/2 × 7 and 2 × 8 m - it's our turn) at: bestellung@rothschenk.de for € 249 including VAT.

    Our pool is round and 4.88 wide, what size should I order? Or would you prefer 2 pillows, because otherwise there would be too much space for water pockets on the left and right?

    24. September 2020 at 08:07

      Hello Mrs. Krug,

      The best would be the XL pool cushion in 2 × 4 m. It is important that the tarpaulin is taut. We have already supplied over 700 customers with this format this year and there have been no problems. 😉 You can find the link here.

    Which cushion do I need for a round pool with a diameter of 3.6m?

    26. September 2020 at 16:47
    • Posts by %s Reply

      Hi Daniel. With a diameter of 3.60 m you have the choice between: Pool Cushion 2×2,5 m and the 2×4 m Pool Cushion. When inflating (approx. 1 m high) a kind of "dome" is created. The water can then run off easily by tensioning the tarpaulin above. Tight tensioning is more important than a pool cushion reaching exactly to the edge of the pool. With this dimension of 3.60 m, both variants would be conceivable. Is super quick to inflate with the electric air pump. 😉

      Hello Mrs. Kremser,
      with a format of 5 × 3 m the 5 × 2 m pool cushion clearly the right choice. The length fits perfectly and the width is also completely sufficient, as only approx. 50 cm have to be bridged to the side. As mentioned in the other comments, the taut tensioning of the tarpaulin is essential. The new self-adhesive Velcro strips (5 × 70 cm, free upgrade with every order) help with fixing.

  • Katja Reply

    Hello, we have a pool with a diameter of 350 cm. 4 m is too long and 2.50 m too short, do you have an interim solution?

    27. September 2020 at 17:09
    • Posts by %s Reply

      Hello Katja. With a diameter of 3.50 m, the Pool Cushion 2×2,5 m is the right one. When inflating (approx. 1m high) a kind of "dome" is created. The water can then run off easily by tensioning the tarpaulin above. Tight tensioning is more important than a pool cushion reaching exactly to the edge of the pool. In your case there would be a distance of about 60 cm all around. If you want to be sure, you could also take the 2×4 m Pool Cushion , because when inflating this is shortened in length and width depending on the volume introduced, e.g. from 4 m to 3.50 m. By the way, the fastest way is with the electric air pump. 😉

      Hello Werner,
      in this case, a 2×4 m XXL Pool Cushion. When fully inflated, it has a format of around 1.80 x 3.60 m, which is enough to create a nice slope with a taut tarpaulin. All around there would be some space of approx. 25 cm, but this would be loosely bridged without creating "water pockets".

      Hello Jurgen. This would be correct: 1x a pool cushion with 2 × 7 m. You can order this directly from us at: bestellung@rothschenk.de for 179.- € including VAT. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the customer center: +49 9335-9715-77

    our pool is oval and 8x4 m in size. What solution can you offer and what does it cost?


    30. September 2020 at 11:04
    • Posts by %s Reply

      Hello Nikolai. In your case, the solution would be: Either insert a pool cushion with 2 × 8 m and tension it neatly, or put a second one next to it. The water would still run off, as a kind of "gutter" would be created. You can order these directly from us (later also in the shop with 2 × 6/2 × 7 and 2 × 8 m - it's our turn) at: bestellung@rothschenk.de for 249.- € including VAT (note: the price is a little higher here, as it is a custom-made product).

      30. September 2020 at 13:48
  • Nikolai Schiel Reply

    For an oval pool, wouldn't a shorter cushion be better? e.g. 6x3 m?

    30. September 2020 at 14:14
    • Posts by %s Reply

      Hello Nikolai, theoretically yes. But the raw material "foil" is limited to 2 m. We are not limited in length, so 8m is no problem to get as close to the edge as possible. You could of course also take 1x 2x7m (179.- €) and one of the 725 x 1.200 mm pool cushions on the right and left to support the tarpaulin. On the one hand, experience has shown that a large cushion in the middle is sufficient if the tarpaulin is neatly tightened. On the other hand, there is always a risk of water pockets when using several pool cushions.

    • Posts by %s Reply

      Hello Dirk, the 2x5 m XXXL Pool Cushion should be a perfect fit. It becomes slightly smaller when inflated (it builds up gradually in height up to approx. 1m) and therefore remains within your dimensions. With this size, the electronic air pump (SHOP) or, for example, use a vacuum cleaner with a blower function, otherwise it will take a long time. Best regards, Thomas.

      Hello Waldemar, There are two options: Yes, the Pool Cushion 2×5 m will be sufficient. If you want to be safe and want to go to the edge, there is also a 2 × 6 m (€ 129 including VAT) and a 2 × 7 m XXL Pool Cushion (€ 179 including VAT).

      Hallo Andrea, das 2×4 m Poolpolster wäre tatsächlich ideal.

      Wichtig ist das straffe Abspannen der Plane, das Polster bewirkt dann die gewünschte Höhe (bis 1-1,2 m) und damit das gewünschte Gefälle.

      Kleiner Tipp: Entweder einen Staubsauger mit Blasfunktion verwenden, sofern vorhanden. Oder unsere el. Luftpumpe

      Liebe Grüße vom Rothschenk-Team

        Hallo Familie Becker,

        es freut uns, dass Sie mit unserem Poolkissen so gute Erfahrung gemacht haben.

        Zu Ihrer Frage: Wir haben dazu extra ein Anwendungsvideo für das SMART-Ventil erstellt. Dieses finden Sie unter: https://youtu.be/fHyo8CFZeGw

        Kleiner Tipp: Beschweren Sie das Poolpolster mit einem Gewicht (z.B. Holzplatte) um das Luftentweichen zu beschleunigen. Anschließend rollen Sie das Poolpolster z.B. mit einer Rolle in Richtung geöffentes Ventil auf.

        Sollten Sie noch Fragen haben, können Sie uns gerne unter shop@rothschenk.de oder 09335-9715-78 erreichen.

        Liebe Grüße, das Rothschenk Team

    Was noch zu erwähnen wäre sind die Poolkissen von Rothschenk!
    Im letzten wirklich Schneereichen Winter (in Nord – Hessen) erstmalig ausprobiert und als klasse Produkt bewertet.
    Endlich sind Poolkissen am Markt die Ventiele haben die wirklich dicht sind, das über Monate (8), was in dem Bereich nicht bei allen Herstellern der Fall ist.
    Selbst 30 – 40cm Neuschnee haben die Poolkissen von Rothschenk nicht in die Knie zwingen können.
    Im Oktober eingewintert und Ende Mai mit der selben Luftmenge aus der Abdeckung von Pool genommen.
    Von mir eine klare Empfehlung, wenn es um Überwintern von Aufstellpools geht.
    So bleibt Schnee und Schmutz draußen und man hat im Frühling sauberes glas klares Wasser!
    Auch eine Form von richtigem Umgang mit begrenzten Rohstoffen ( Trinkwasser).

    Beste Grüße, Lutz Adler

      Guten Tag Patrik,

      vielen Dank für die Nachfrage. Bei diesem Format würden wir dir das XXXL Poolpolster im Format 2×5 m empfehlen. Je nach dem wie straff du deine Abdeckplane spannen kannst, würde bereits 1 Poolpolster gut ausreichen. Denkbar wären auch zwei Poolpolster nebeneinander – wird aber wahrscheinlich nicht notwendig sein – es ist ja auch ein Kostenfaktor ;-). Nebeneinander ginge, da beim Aufblasen sich das Polster ja in jede Richtung ca. 20 cm verkürzt und 3,80 m damit abgedeckt würden. Wenn du noch Fragen hast schreib uns einfach (z.B. Mail oder via Chatfunktion) Viel Spaß beim bestellen, dein Rothschenk Team.

      Sehr geehrter Herr Franck. Ein 5×2 m Kissen wäre bei einer Gesamtlänge des Pools von 7.32 m in der Tat etwas zu kurz. Optimal wäre hier ein 2×7 m Poolkissen, welches Sie per Mail bei uns bestellen könnten (shoporder(at)rothschenk.de). Der Preis wäre 179.- € inkl. Mehrwertsteuer und inkl. Versand nach Deutschland/Österreich und würde beinhalten: 1x Poolkissen 2x7m, 1x Klettsstreifen selbstklebend im Format 5×70 cm und unser optimiertes Befülladapter für das ebenfalls neue „FLAP-Ventil.
