|Solar rings||Solar rings are designed to provide heat for a pool similar to a standard solar pool cover, but are more adept at passing heat to deeper parts of the pool. They can also be turned over when the pool temperature is ideal, enabling them to act as barriers to sunlight that will evaporate water and pool chemicals.||N/A|
|Winter cover||Winter pool covers are designed to protect a pool from debris as well as other unwanted pool contaminators. While many winter covers offer features such as thermal protection or coloring to help guard against algae growth, they do often vary in weave thickness which can be a determinate in the durability and overall quality of the cover.||N/A|
