    Solar Sun Rings

    Does anyone have experience with Solar Sun Rings that are round and held together with magnets?

    Good or bad?

    12k gallons, pebble tech, DE filter, SWG (inop?)

    Trying to learn!

    The average opinion is quite negative, with only one or maybe two people who like them and over a dozen who tried them and then got something else because of a variety of problems.

    Re: Solar Sun Rings

    We had them last year for our 9x18 intex. the only thing they did was make a mess....AND a great birdbath for the birds...which means a ton of poop in the pool. They collect leaves and pollen and don't really have any heating power. And they're a pain to deal with. This year I picked up two ecosolar heaters and a solar blanket. just the solar blanket does 10x what the rings did...the rings were a waste of money. If you're concerned about the issue with the solar blanket and someone/something falls in, I cut the blanket into 3 strips, easier to deal with laying/removing and no worries about someone getting "stuck" in them.
