      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.

      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.

      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!

      I LOVE this little guy!
      I purchased this at the same time I purchased "The Circulator" (x2 item# A2292-- awesome updated pool return fittings) and so our pool shark swims along the edges and cuts over to the deep end and then back to the edges and over to the middle of the shallow end. I think he's doing a figure 8 pattern. This little guy rocks.

      Looks like it would work great, IF I had NEEDED it
      We've had plain floating chlorinators in the past, and they worked great, so I thought this Cool Shark Floating Chlorinator would look really cute floating in my pool. When I ordered this item online, I thought I was going to need this Floating Chlorinator because we had an above ground pool that used chlorine. Then I had an accident, ended up hospitalized for a month, & need physical therapy. Because I need to exercise my legs, we took down our shallow above ground pool and installed a ... read more saltwater inground pool, that doesn't use chlorine. So there's no need for this Floating Chlorinator .

      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).

      Really cute!!
      Needed a new chlorinator since the one we already have is original to the pool which is now going on 9 years old. This is one is really cute and the thermometer is spot on.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Pool chlorine floater
      It is good and holds plenty of the chlorine tablets.

      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.
    1. 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

      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.

      Jumbo Duck Chlorinator
      Jumbo D.Chlorintor is swimming in my in-ground pool and having a great time chlorinating as he swims circles around previous chlorinators. Jumbo Duck Chlorinator is one of many purchases I have made from In The Swim and I am happy with their products and the timely delivery of In The Swim products.

    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.
