    Solarsunrings vs solarsundiscs

    Does anyone has experience with the solar sun discs?

    I've tried the search tool within the forum but I was not able to find any topic...

    Here I've found a comparison but a real user experience would be great.

    I can't find any information either. There was a reference to sundiscs on Gardenweb, but they were really talking about the solar rings. The discs do look like they would work. I hope someone, maybe one of the pool industry guys knows a little bit about them and can reply.

    Re: Solarsunrings vs solarsundiscs

    There are some threads about them someplace. The consensus is that they don't work all that well, since they tend to blow around too much. You'd be better off with a standard solar cover.

    Re: Solarsunrings vs solarsundiscs

    Yeah I've read some thread about the solar rings but the sun discs seems to work differently while coupled through magnets and no needs to inflate.

    They may have some advantage, easily store and install first but also safety as they should open in case someone (or some pet) will falls down in the pool while the cover is on it.

    The research continue.....
