- What's Included
The Solar Sun Ring™ is a passive solar swimming pool heating device made from two sheets of heavyweight UV resistant vinyl. The upper clear layer holds insulating air and focuses sunlight on the blue colored lower layer. The blue layer absorbs about 50% of the sunlight and converts it to heat. The balance of the sunlight is allowed to pass through for deep water heating. At night the contained air acts as an insulating blanket to retain heat gained during daylight.
Solar Sun Rings are equipped with six magnets to improve clarity and decrease hardness of the water in your pool. The magnets are positioned to facilitate rafting. The strength of the magnets will permit single position removal but will easily separate to prevent entrapment in accidental falls. Solar Sun Rings were designed to be compatible with automatic pool cleaners. In the event the suction hose catches on a ring, the ring will separate from the raft to allow the pool cleaner to continue. Neither water nor pool chemicals can evaporate through the Solar Sun Rings two layers of heavyweight vinyl. You will save water and chemicals about equal to the percentage of the surface covered. Once the water in your pool has reached adequate temperature, Solar Sun Rings may be turned over to conserve water by limiting evaporation without significantly heating the water.

How many Solar Sun Rings does my pool need? We recommend enough Solar Sun Rings be purchased to cover 70% to 80% of your pools surface, ignoring the small triangles between the rings.
How much heat does one Solar Sun Ring put out? In an ongoing test at the National Pool Industry Research Center in California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo and during the summer months of 2005, Solar Sun Rings proves a total heat input to test pools of 21,000 BTU (or 84,000 Heat Joules) per day for each unit. This result was validated by repeatedly heating 10 x 19 foot test pools to a maximum of 8 degrees Fahrenheit in 4 days and reached plateau after that. Approximately 67% of the pool was covered with Solar Sun Rings.
Are Solar Sun Rings compatible with my pool? Solar Sun Rings may be used on all chlorine or salt water system pools, whether in ground or above ground. Common accessories such as pool cleaners and leaf catchers are able to operate normally with Solar Sun Rings on the pool. The many features that give Solar Sun Rings greater safety at the same time allow them to be used with automatic pool cleaners. Solar Sun Rings are also compatible with solar panel systems giving a pool a double shot of the sun's energy during the day and great nighttime insulation.
What if a person or animal falls onto one or many Solar Sun Rings while in the pool? Because of their relatively small size and the easy detachment of the rafting magnets, Solar Sun Rings pose little or no harm of entrapment against a object, person, or animal in case of falling in. In any such case, the fallen person or animal can easily remove the Solar Sun Ring(s) and swim to safety. No other floating solar cover matches Solar Sun Rings design for safety. Countless pets and many people have died because of entrapment with the one piece bubble pack covers. The primary design criteria of the Solar Sun Ring was to prevent entrapment.
How do I clean my Solar Sun Rings? After removal from the swimming pool Solar Sun Rings can be easily cleaned with a sponge and white vinegar solution.

Review of 37882
I ordered 5 but only 4 would pump up properly! So I returned the 5th one but would rather have another one instead of a refund!
