I purchased the solar rings about a week ago. Instead of buying a pool heater, I figured I would try them out and save a couple of thousands of $$$. In just 4 days with the rings in the pool I got my water temperature up from 75 to 84. I only lose about 1-2 degrees at night, compared to 5-7 before the rings. My neighbours pool without a solar cover or rings is 6 degrees cooler than mine. Great product and well worth the money.

Thank you, Joseph Greco

...We have lived in this house for 18 years and I have never enjoyed the pool as much as I have these past two weeks. I can't wait to see how long I can stretch this swim season...

Dear Solar Sun Rings,

In June of 2006 I received your product for use on my residential pool. I must admit that upon first unpacking the Solar Sun Ring I was very skeptical. After reading through the instructions it was very easy to put the product to test on my pool. I put the SSR's on my pool on a Tuesday afternoon; the pool temperature was 76 degrees. I checked the temperature again that weekend and it was 84 degrees! The Solar Sun Ring works great. In fact, they work too good - during the hot July we had, I left the covers on to cut down on the dust and tree debris and the pool got heated to the mid 90's, a little too warm.
My wife and I love your product. It provides a very effective way to extend the use of our pool. For anyone who is looking for a pool heating system that is convenient to use and most importantly safe from entrapment issues, Solar Sun Rings is by far the most superior product on the market!

Thank you, Paul L Nolta & Dr. Jolene C. Diez - Murrieta, CA

The rings are fantastic! You have a wonderful product and I have copied your brochure and gave it to a few neighbors.

As per conversation with your Customer Service Department today I am writing this letter to express the following:
The solar sun rings have reduced my gas consumption over 70% in heating the pool. Last July the cost to heat the pool was nearly $600.00 . Gas prices have increased over 25% in the past year and my gas bill for the month of July was less than $200.00. The average temperature for the month of July has been about the same as it was last year as per info written on gas bill.
The warranty department was great as well - I had a problem with several of the rings and the Warranty Department is sending out some new rings as part of the warranty.

After having the new design of the sun rings for a couple of weeks, I wanted to give you our feedback. When we first talked about the first ones we purchased, you promised that we would be thrilled with the new ones. I have to say you were absolutely right! I think I wrote you right after we put them on that they were almost flat coming out of the packaging. After a few days in the hot sun, they were all perfectly flat and look great on the pool. The water temperature increased from 67F to 81F in just 8 days with an outside temp in the mid 80s to low 90s. We are in a pool study program evaluating chemicals through my work and teams of people come out to evaluate the pools often. I just received an email saying the pool looked great and was about 8F higher in temp than every other pool in the study. They were amazed at how well your product worked.

I also wanted to thank you on your quick and professional response to our concerns with the original product. If you need a testimonial as you launch your new design, please feel free to contact me. Thanks again.

I found the Solar Sun Rings at The Pool and Spa House in Tigard, OR. They are located in the Metro Portland Oregon area. They have increased my pool temp each day (and we've had a lot of hot weather which helps) and have not seen any drop in pool temp! We're excited about Solar Sun Rings because they are so easy to handle on and off the pool. The fact that we have an irregular shaped pool (an L shape) was another reason for our choice. A conventional solar blanket would have been too cumbersome. We're thrilled with the results, think they're a great invention and highly recommend them.

I am in my 2nd year of using solar sun rings and I am a convinced, satisfied customer. I feel that they saved me almost 40% on my gas pool heater bill. It also reduced my water loss due to evaporation and reduced the amount of chemicals I needed to use. My wife and I also feel that they are easier to use than a large solar blanket. Thank you for bringing this quality product to market.

The new rings are perfect and warming my pool nicely. The family and I are very pleased. I will recommend your rings to family and friends that have pools.

Thanks again!

I just wanted to say thanks for walking me through the inflation process over the phone on Thursday. After inflating them correctly, they now float well on the surface of my pool. The electric air compressor helped a lot, especially with 15 rings. Here are the results of one day's worth of solar ring heating in combination with my heat pump -

Yesterday's pool temperature - 77 degrees
Today's pool temperature - 85 degrees

While my heat pump ran continuously for 24 hours, it has never heated the pool this fast. Even on the hottest days, I never saw more than a 3 degree increase. I believe that the solar rings definitely helped increase the rate of heating. Even during the night, the pool temperature increased one degree!
It seems clear that the solar rings have made a big difference in heating my pool. When my heat pump eventually goes, I do not intend to purchase a new one, given the cost of new pumps and electricity. At that point, I plan to use solar rings as my exclusive source of heat.

Thanks again for your help. Feel free to use my feedback on your website.

I am a true fan of Solar Sun Rings. My wife and I were in search of some sort of cover for our swimming pool. We live in Northern California (Marin County) the day time temperature during swim season (mid May thru Sept.) is 80-90 and the evening temperature drops down into the 50's. Thus we lose a lot of heat over night. Our night time heat loss is further compounded by fact that we have a free form shaped pool with a beach on one side that extends out 10 feet towards the center.

We found your product on the Internet while searching for some sort of cover. We bought 15 Solar Sun Rings (SSR) in May of 2006. Immediately we were impressed for the following reasons:
1) My wife will not get in our pool unless the temperature is 85-90 and the SSR's brought the temperature up in our pool by 8-10 degrees.
2) Evaporation has been cut back. Our water bill has dropped. We live in Marin County and I believe we have the most expensive water in the state of California.
3) My PG&E bill (power bill) has dropped. Our pool heating before SSR's was achieved by running our solar panels 8 hrs. a day. Our run time now is cut in half.
4) We have two small children that are swimmers and a regular cover posed a real safety concern. With the rings the danger of being caught below a cover is greatly reduced. They break apart.
5) SSR's are easy to put in and take out!
6) NO UGLY EXPENSIVE REEL AND COVER sitting by the side of my pool. Easy storage with SSR's.
7) No algae build up like you would get with an old fashion cover.

It is my opinion that once the word gets out on this product, regular swimming pool covers will become obsolete. Please let me know when your stock is about to go public.

Sincerely,

Mark Slovensky - Marin County, CA (Very happy SSR owner!)

Dear Lora,

This is Mark & Joyce Skukowski from Sarasota Fl. with "Enjoy Your Pool Service". We met you and Richard at the Pool & Spa Expo in Orlando, Fl this past year. When we were introduced to your product, we thought "this is too good to be true!"

After receiving the order for our pool, we were so excited! The first day we gained six degrees in our pool temperature. We now average eight to nine degrees above any pool with no other heat source! With our heat pump on and the pool set at 90 degrees we only lose 2 to 4 degrees at night when the pool is shut down at night, pools with no type of cover can lose 12 or more degrees at night.

As you know, most pool maintenance people hate the removal and replacement of solar blankets. The solar rings can be left in the pool and moved around to clean the pool – making our jobs easier! They have also cut down on evaporation – less hoses to be left running and turned off.

A great selling point to our customers is the easy storage. They fold up – or can be hung on a hook in the shade of a patio. We are so happy we met!"

We really look forward to promoting your product and developing a great business relationship!

I used to have a large bubble-cover to heat my pool. It was very hard to get off and it fell apart. My neighbor has solar sun rings and said that she really liked them. I ordered 14 for my pool and I love them! They are easy to take off and put back on the pool and they heat my pool to a very nice temperature and keep the heat in when it cools down at night. They are a life saver - because I do not have a pool heater!

Thanks so much for such a wonderful product.

I have used your product for about two years now and I would rate it as excellent (5 stars).

A few comments:

The rings work really well in heating the water and on cutting down on evaporation. They are also much easier to take off the pool and to stack than the standard pool covers. I have a large pool and one person can take 20 rings off in about 10 minutes. I lay down a tarp on the deck and then fold the tarp over the rings when they are all stacked.

I live in Santa Rosa CA, and I needed about 20 rings to get good coverage and heating for the 600 square-foot surface area pool. Santa Rosa is one hour north of San Francisco and the weather is a little cooler than in So Cal.

Last winter I put two hooks on the ceiling of my garage and put an 8 foot length of closet dowel between the hooks. I then threaded the solar rings by the big loop on the edge of the ring and let them hang there for the winter. It was no problem to take them down and re-inflate them for the coming season.

Finally, inflating the rings can be a little tricky. My system is to inflate the center of the ring a little more than what was needed and then I would put the little tube that allows the air to escape in the air inlet valve and then I would bunch up the ring to about the size of a soccer ball and then pull out the little tube and close the valve. I end up with just the right amount of air.

This is an excellent product that is very well designed. Great job!

Please accept some positive feedback on your Solar Sun Ring pool product. We live in the central part of Virginia where most pools open around Memorial Day. We have a 20,000 gallon above ground pool. During the first year, we thought the water temperature would never reach a comfortable level.

While researching expensive and complicated pool heaters, I saw your Solar Sun Ring. I decided to try them because they were economical, uncomplicated and did not take additional electrical power or extra room in my yard.

What a difference! My family and I were delighted to see the water temperature rise noticeably within a day. In just a day or two the water temperature was a comfortable 85 degrees and we were enjoying the pool long before anyone else in the neighborhood. We use the rings all summer to keep the temperature where we like it and were able to extend last year's swimming season by several weeks.

I wanted to thank you for selling a great product at a reasonable price and actually does what it is advertised to do. As long as I have a pool, I'll use the solar rings.

When we were in the market for a solar cover for our pool we went to a local pool supply store with full intentions of buying a traditional "bubble wrap" blue solar cover. The salesperson told us about this new product that they couldn't keep on the shelf called "Solar Sun Rings." We decided to give them a try... with, admittedly, a little skepticism.

We've been using them for a couple of months now and I cannot believe how well they work. You'd think living in sunny warm Arizona people wouldn't need a product like this but the problem is that at the beginning and end of the pool season here the days are warm and sunny, but the nights are still very cool and dry. Any warming of the pool during the day is more than lost at night with the cooler temps and extremely dry air. The Solar Sun Rings help warm the pool much quicker during the day and then at night they help keep that warmth in and fight evaporation. The fact that the entire pool surface is not covered is a tremendous advantage because it allows me to add chemicals if needed and also monitor my pool vacuum.

I was also a little concerned that they may affect the operation of my Hayward Pool Vacuum because the vacuum hose floats on the surface. I am pleased to say that the rings do not affect the operation at all.

Since our purchase, we have told friends and some of them have also purchased them for their pools.

Thanks for a great product!

We love our Solar Sun Rings! They are easy to use and keep our pool warm even on cool days so we can use it more often. And it keeps our pool heater from working overtime. We couldn't be happier and we recommend them to everyone! Thanks for a great product!

I purchased 12 Solar Rings for my pool in May, 2009. After six weeks, I am totally satisfied with their performance. They heat the pool just like the literature stated and most of all, they dramatically slowed down my pool water evaporation at a time when water conservation is a very high priority in California. They are extremely easy to remove and replace in the pool (takes me less that 5 minutes) and have helped to keep my pool clean. Additionally, I believe my chemical additions to the pool have slowed down some over the past month. All-in-all, I consider the advertising for Solar Rings to be quite accurate.

I am 71 years old and the reduction in physical effort handling the Solar Rings compared to manipulating a large and cumbersome pool blanket can't be understated. My back thanks Solar Sun Rings.

My husband and I purchased the Solar Sun Rings last season and were amazed at how easy they are to use. It's so much easier to remove them and place them on the water than large pool covers. They do an amazing job of retaining and increasing heat when turned upright in our pool in the mountains of Arizona. The rings save gas bills and help the pool stay much cleaner. They are a great invention (only wish we had the patent on them!) and your customer service department is awesome as well. Thanks for the great pool accessories.
