well, we are in our 3rd year with our 33ft above ground, and we love it....HOWEVER I have found putting the solar cover (HUGE) on and off is just a royal pain in the keester! The cover is huge, the solar reel is HUGE, and it's just a nasty chore at the end of a day.
I have been looking at the "solar rings" at Doheny's Water Warehouse...here's the link:

anyway..are these basically just round pieces of solar cover that you can collect up individually? I really like the idea of going out on the deck, and collecting and stacking up these rings, as opposed to the big old heavy solar cover and reel..but I want to be sure these things actually hold in heat.
Any help, opinions, anyone use them?????
