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 of the Solar Sun Ring 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. Each ring generates 21,000 BTUs per day and has been
designed to be compatible with automatic pool cleaners. Neither water
nor pool chemicals can evaporate through the sun ring's two layers
of heavyweight vinyl. You will save water and chemicals about equal to
the percentage of the surface covered. These rings may be used on
all chlorine or salt water system pools, whether in ground or above
There are two types of Solar Sun Rings. This sun ring does not have an
water anchor. If you are in a high wind area, it is suggested you use
the rings with Water Anchors.
How Do Solar Sun Rings
night the contained air acts as an insulating blanket to retain heat
gained during daylight. These 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, the sun rings may be turned
over to conserve water by limiting evaporation without significantly
heating the water.
How Many Solar Sun
Rings Do I Need?
recommend enough rings be purchased to cover 70% to 80% of
your pools surface, ignoring the small triangles between the rings.
