How do solar rings work?

Beside this, do solar rings for pools really work?

It's important to note that neither rings nor squares will cover every inch of your pool water. There will be gaps, even when they're connected by their magnets. It's for this reason that solar rings and squares are not as effective as a solar blanket at either heating your pool water or preventing evaporation.
