Solar Sun Rings
The Solar Sun Ring is a passive
solar swimming pool heating device made from two sheets of heavyweight
U.V. 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.
Solar Sun Rings Work?
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
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.
Many Solar Sun Rings Do I 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.

Are Solar Sun Rings
With My Pool?
Solar Sun Rings may be used on
all chlorine or salt water system pools, whether in ground or above
How Do I Clean My Solar Sun
After removal from the
swimming pool Solar Sun Rings can be easily cleaned with a sponge and
mild detergent solution.
Rings Help Your Pool Stay Clean
Your pool requires some direct
sunlight and open water to stay healthy. The open water around the raft
of Solar Sun Rings and the triangle caused by the convergence of three
Solar Sun Rings is by design. These open areas allow your pool to
receive some direct sunlight. This sunlight will greatly reduce the
incidence of mustard algae.
