    Chlorine Floaters & Brominators

    1. 1 decade ago
      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!

      nice features for the price
      the thermometer seems to work fine so far. a nice feature on this floater is an attached string that can be tied up, to keep the floater in place. easily takes in three 3-inch tablets. easy open top and lock

      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

      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).

      easy to use product
      I use this for winter time closing chlorination because it is usually still a little on the warm side outdoors when I close the pool. It is an extra safeguard for not having a green pool in the spring when I do open it up again.

      great item
      I had one like this and it became hard and brittle and fell apart, bottom, so looked at local stores but they were out of stock so searched here and they had it. In the heat here, Arizona, they dry out so got two so would be prepared. The previous one lasted over 5 years so was made of good material.

      Sturdy floater
      All floaters wear out eventually either the hot sun or chlorine cause it to curdle and fall apart. I bought this jumbo floater to hopefully last an extra season! It’s sturdy and large...holds more than the normal 4 tabs easily....so far so good! Last one in is a.....lol.

      Stellar Product!!
      I bought two of these 2 yrs ago for my 40'x16' and 4' to 8' 30,000gal in-ground pool and they are perfect and everything I expected. I used to hate trying to round up my old "non-popping" floaters to check the tabs. With these guys I never have to worry about it, I know exactly when I need to refill my 3" tabs. My only complaint is that there is no way to adjust the flow of how much chlorine is let out but with my size pool two open just like they are is perfect, so much so I DC'd my in-line ... read more chlorinator and only use these now. This is going on my 3rd year/season with them and I'm sure I will need to replace after this season only because the lids are just now starting to show some UV damage. We live in a very hard water area and calcium is bad, the one time the device did not pop up was due to a lil bit of calcium that I cleaned off with vinegar and back to popping up like a champ. Def buying some more this fall. Also if you are not already using the 3" SUPER MULTI-TABS you should be, these are the best tabs I've ever used. Controls algae and has everything the pool needs in one lil tablet. WELL WORTH THE EXTRA COST to get these tabs and seems they don't dissolve as fast as the regular tabs as well.

      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!
      The no-work, no-fuss pool chlorinator. As an engineer, I'm impressed with the design of this simple device that works exactly as stated. The inner basket has a different buoyancy than the outer housing. It sinks down with 3 tablets in it, but when they dissolve down to the equivalent of one tablet's weight, it floats up, exposing the red ring you can see from 25 yds+. As a novice, I would offer one tip. Allow up to one week for a new, un-chlorinated pool to register on the test strips. My ... read more pool is 15,000 gal, and that's how long it took.

      Good quality product
      This chlorine floater works really well. I have been using it for about a month now, and it keeps the chlorine levels where they need to be.

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

    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.
