    Chlorine Floaters & Brominators

    1. 5 years ago
      Great idea.
      I am very happy with this product. I have an above ground pool and have to go out and turn the filter on and off every day and night. I love how it pops up when you forget about the chlorine.

      Well constucted
      I purchased these to replace the normal winter floater bags I spend $10 - 12 x 4 each year. If the's last a few years and should work better, I have saved money by using my own clorine tabs and reusing these floaters vs ones I throw out each year.

      Works great. When the chlorine tabs are low the lid pops up and I like the large size.

      Love this Chlorinator!
      Love the fact that it floats angled when it is low and on its side when it’s empty!

      Excellent Product
      This is a great holder for the chlorine tablets. We hardly even remember that it's in our pool because it's so small and it doesn't seem like you have to add tablets that often. We would highly recommend this product to everyone!

      awesome help
      I purchased the chlorinator to help with the chlorine levels while we were gone on vacation. It has been really good to us for the summer and I do not regret purchasing it at all and never take it out of the pool.

      Does the job
      Both parts float - handy if the cover is not tightened properly, as you don't have to dive for the cover. It is blue and white. It floats. Hurrah.

      Durable!
      I have had a pool for 5 years and every year we would have to get a new floating chlorine dispenser. We have had the shark and a few others but they never lasted more than a year and we were constantly filling it. I purchased this jumbo chlorinator last year and LOVE it! It keeps the chlorine levels up and requires fewer fills! Wish I would have purchased this one first!

      Good product
      Easy to fill (once you get the hang of putting the top back on). It almost works too good. I have it "closed" as far as it goes, but is actually putting too much chlorine in my 14 x 28 pool. I've been using 1" tabs, maybe I'll try 3" tabs. Hopefully they might dissolve slower.

      Very nice product
      It does what it says. I have fit at least 7 three inch tabs in at one time which is what I wanted due to having a large inground pool. Top snaps closed tight too.

      Cute Duck
      I think the duck is adorable. However the basket fell apart after 2 years. Can't seem to find a replacement for it. The Duck (top part) held up well.

      Ducky is a little cheaply made
      The plastic holder on bottom is a little flimsy, and you have to pop your own holes in it, I did not like that part, and it does not screw on very well, but for the price, it's ok, I'm using it, just don't think it will last very long
    3. 3 years ago
      you can put as many holes as you need.
      its really great and looks good to.plenty of space for extra tablets

      Shark!
      We bought the "shark" chlorine floater because our automatic chlorinator broke (again). We're glad we did. It's fun to look at, easy to fill, and it's tall enough that is doesn't get stuck in the skimmer area (like normal ones).

      Fun & Functional
      Top is easy to remove and replace. I've had other cute floaties that take 2 people or 2 band-aids to work with. Very convenient.

      I Love My Little Shark
      I've read other reviews and cannot believe everyone isn't crazy about this little guy. I have had mine for over a year now and it is wonderful. It is cute and dispenses chlorine as advertised. It holds the perfect amount of 3" tablets and has kept it's color and sassy-ness all year.

      Great Combo
      I bought this because I was looking for a bigger chlorinator that would handle 3' tabs so I wouldn't have to break them up. The fact that it had a thermometer was a bonus! The price can't be beat!
    2. 10 years ago
      This one will last for years
      After going through the typical pace/hth floater every year. I originally bought this for the integrated thermometer. I was very pleased with the quality of the plastice, ease and variety of flow adjustments. The top locks in place so no accidental spills when the kids get rough in the pool.

      great combo
      Works great. A little too much for a three person hot tub. 1 Three inch tab keeps chlorine too high had to break them up. Nono

    Floating Chlorinators & Brominators

    Chlorine Floaters for Pools & Spas

    Floating pool chlorinators and floating brominators maintain a steady flow of chemicals into your pool, even when the pump is not running. Floaters also prevent problems from using tablets in the pool skimmer. Add 1 inch or 3 inch tabs (or sticks) to the floating chlorine dispenser, close the lid, adjust the baffle vents, and simply place into the pool. Floating pool chlorinators have a top hole so you can tie-off the floater to a rope hook or ladder rail. 

    Chlorine floaters are the most common choice for above ground pool owners. Do not use the skimmer as a chlorinator, which will cause hose and pump problems, unless you run the pump 24/7. If you do not have an automatic chemical feeder, a pool chlorine floater is the next best thing. Floating chlorinators ensure that chlorine is being dispensed constantly in your pool so that you can be confident of sanitary pool water.

    How many chlorine tablets to use in a pool floater? To determine the number of tablets and best baffle setting on a floating chlorinator, test the chlorine level over a few days, to find the sweet spot of 1.0-2.0 ppm of free chlorine. If the chlorine tests low, add more tablets and/or open the baffle vents fully, and if the chlorine tests high, remove some tablets, or close the baffle vents more. Most pools use about one 3" chlorine tablet for every 5,000 gallons of pool water, replaced every 5-7 days. Set a reminder so you don't forget to refill the floater with tabs, or use the Pop-up Chlorinator, which lets you know when it is empty. 

    Winter pool floaters? Because it contains no chlorine, our winter pool floaters cannot stain plaster or bleach vinyl, even if they sink or tip over. In The Swim non-chlorine winter floaters are not sold separately however, only as part of our Pool Closing Kits. You can use a chlorine tablet floater during winter, with careful placement. Close the floater baffle vents fully, and tie-off the floater over the middle of the pool with a tight rope connected on each side of the pool. 

    In The Swim’s selection of floating chlorine dispensers range in size from traditional blue and white floaters that hold 5-6 tablets, to the larger Cool Shark and Jumbo Duck Floating Chlorinator, and the newest Jumbo Floating Chlorinator, all of which can fit 8-9 tablets. These large chlorine floaters are suitable for pools over 25,000 gallons. They are often used as winter floaters, and also for smaller pools - with the baffles nearly closed, a small pool could go 2-3 weeks between refills.  

    All of our floating pool chlorinators arrive with fast shipping and processing. Please feel free to contact In The Swim’s friendly, expert staff by phone or email with any questions you may have regarding pool floaters and brominators or any of our pool supplies.
