How do Solar Sun Rings work?
Solar Sun Rings are composed of two layers of heavy duty U.V. resistant vinyl. The top sheet absorbs the light from the sun and channels it to the lower layer. The bottom layer absorbs the sunlight and converts the energy to heat. The rest of the sunlight passes through the Solar Sun Rings to the bottom of the pool for deep water heating. When the sun is absent, the air in between the two layers act as a blanket to insulate the heat trapped during the day. There are six magnets located around the circumference. These magnets improve your pool’s clarity and reduce your pool’s hardness. In addition the magnets are used to link the rings together to create a raft across your pool. The magnetic strength is strong, but weak enough so the average person will be able to remove one ring from the raft. In addition, if someone or an animal accidentally falls in the pool while the raft is intact, the magnets will break apart, preventing entrapment. Solar Sun Rings are designed to be compatible with automatic pool cleaners. If a suction hose accidentally catches a ring, the ring will break apart from the raft, allowing the pool cleaner to function.

How do I know if I need Solar Sun Rings with Water Anchors?
If you live in an area that is particularly windy, we definitely recommend purchasing Solar Sun Rings with Water Anchors. The water anchor is composed of an additional overlapping piece of vinyl on the bottom. The channel is automatically filled as the ring enters the pool and automatically drains when pulled out.

How many Solar Sun Rings do I need for my own pool?
Each Solar Sun Ring’s diameter is 5 feet long. It is recommended that you purchase enough Solar Sun Rings to cover about 75% of your pool’s surface. In order to determine how many you’ll need, you can use this coverage calculator.

What kind of pools are Solar Sun Rings compatible with?
Every kind of pool! Solar Sun Rings can be used with chlorine or saltwater pool systems. They are also compatible with in ground and above ground pools too. Leaf catchers, pool cleaners, and other common accessories are all compatible with Solar Sun Rings.

I live by myself, can I apply and remove Solar Sun Rings by alone or are they too heavy?
Solar Sun Rings have a diameter of 5 feet which is definitely manageable for most adults. They are a great pool cover option for someone who lives alone or does their pool maintenance by themselves.

What if someone falls in my pool while my Solar Sun Rings are in the pool?
The rafting magnets will break apart once the person or animal swims to the surface, allowing the them to breathe and swim to safety. Many pets and people die each year because of entrapment with one piece pool covers. Solar Sun Rings were designed to prevent entrapment.

Do Solar Sun Rings have a warranty?
AZ Pool Supplies Inc. does not offer a warranty for Solar Sun Rings, but the manufacturer upholds a two year warranty.

How do Solar Sun Rings reduce water loss, reduce chemical usage, and keep my pool healthy?
Water and pool chemicals can’t evaporate through the Solar Sun Rings. This will allow you to conserve water and save chemicals about equal the percentage of the surface covered by the rings. The more space in your pool is covered by Solar Sun Rings, the less evaporation occurs. If you’re satisfied with the temperature reached by your rings, you may flip them over. This will conserve your water level without significantly heating the water.

      Unfortunately, that cleaner has been discontinued and we’re out of stock for that particular part. If you’re in the market for a new cleaner, I recommend the Kreepy Krauly Lil Shark. According to my tech, it’s very similar to the Zippy. You can view its product page here.
