PROVIDE 21,000 BTU’S OF HEAT PER RING, PER DAY – FOR FREE!

Tested at the National Pool Industry Research Center at Cal Poly University, Solar Sun Rings™ proved a total heat input of 21,000 BTU per day for EACH unit!

Solar Sun Ring SSR-1What Are 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.

 
How Do 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 accidental falls.
 
Solar Sun Rings were designed to be compatible with automatic pool cleaners. In the event the cleaner hose catches on a ring, the ring will separate from the other rings 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 pool surface that is covered by the Solar Sun Rings. Once the water in your pool has reached adequate temperature, the Solar 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? We recommend enough Solar Sun Rings to cover 70% to 80% of your pools surface, ignoring the small triangles between the rings. Solar Sun rings are 60″ in diameter.

Solar Sun Ring SSR-1Are 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.

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 mild detergent.

Solar Sun 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.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
