Anyone have any experience with using them?

How well do they work?

Buy a solar cover instead. Cheaper & more efficient.

My personal experience with a Focus Temp 85 heat pump and Water Co USA has been horrible. Poor durability, outrageously expensive to repair and zero assistance from the company.

Do you even need a solar cover in San Antonio? I would think you need a chiller more than a heater! :P

These are expensive when you look at the cost per square foot, but easier to store I suppose. It would seem easier to roll up a cover than pick up 47 rings from your pool surface. I would just get a basic solar cover considering your location.

I just tried the Solar Rings. Don't waste your money. They are built like a cheap inflatable float and don't hold air well enough. One deflated while I was at work and ended covering up my skimmer. They are very difficult to get to lay flat and the wind blows them out of the pool.
