    Chlorine Floaters & Brominators

    1. 2 months ago
      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

      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.

      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

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      Pop-up Floating Chlorinator
      I purchased this item because my in-line chlorinator failed and I do not plan to replace it this season. I was uncertain whether the floating chlorinator would do the job, because In the Swim's description gives no idea of what size pool can be adequately chlorinated with the device. It was certainly worth a try since I had no other reasonable options. My aboveground pool is 24 ft diameter and 4 ft deep; I am quite pleased with the chlorinator's performance. It is maintaining my total ... read more chlorine at 3-5 ppm. I fastened my chlorinator to the pool wall where the water inlet from the pump is located, thinking that the high water flow would help dissolve the chlorine. I have not yet tried letting it float free to see whether there is a difference in chlorine level. The pop-up feature is nice, as it allows a visual check of the need to refill. In my case, I am adding five 3-inch chlorine pucks about once a week, which is actually a slightly lower rate than the inline chlorinator (~one puck/day). There is nothing magical about the pop-up feature; the popping up happens because the plastic basket wants to float, but it is weighed down by the chlorine tablets. When enough chlorine is used up, the plastic rises. This chlorinator is less trouble than my inline chlorinator, which requires shutting off the pump and removing the difficult chlorinator cover. The floater requires filling more often, but it is easier. The proximity of the chlorinator to swimmers is not an issue; it is easily ignored or pushed away. I have to stand directly above it to detect any odor. I cannot yet speak to the durability of the product. I suppose the plastic basket will eventually deteriorate due to its exposure to high chlorine concentration, but I will have to wait (hopefully a long time) to see how long this takes. Overall, I am well-satisfied with this chlorinator. You should be able to buy one with confidence, especially now that I have given you an idea of how large a pool you might expect to chlorinate with it (something that In the Swim really should add to their description).

      Love this
      I love this product. I might be lazy but it keeps me from ha omg to check my skimmer to see when I need more chlorine and it lets me plan and buy more chlorine befor me I’m totally out.

      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.

      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 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.

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

      good value
      i bought these to easily help keep extra chlorine in water. they can easily hold up to 4 of the 3 inch tablets. its a good price. they last for years.
    2. 4 years ago
      eh!
      Top doesn't stay shut and lid cracks after baking in the sun for a couple years. Not many other options out there except goofy animals.

      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.

    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.
