A solar sun ring is a floating cover for a swimming pool. The rings are made from two sheets of vinyl plastic, which are fused together with hundreds of tiny air pockets inside.
How Solar Sun Rings Works
Solar Sun Rings are designed so that your pool absorbs heat from the sun during the day, which is then stored as thermal energy. At night, when temperatures drop, that thermal energy radiates back into your pool, keeping it warm for longer.
Benefits of Solar Sun Rings
Solar sun rings are great because they’re inexpensive and easy to install. They don’t require any special equipment or knowledge; just throw them into your pool and let them do their work. But these aren’t just passive devices — you can use them to actively warm up your pool if you need to.
A typical solar sun ring has a dark blue top side and clear bottom side. The bottom side is what absorbs the heat from the sun and warms up the air inside it.
