    Chlorine Floaters & Brominators

    1. 9 months ago
      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.

      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.

      Looks cool!!
      It look cool but it is fading fast and it gets caught on the hose assembly for my pool cleaner so it doesn't move around the pool very well!! That is the only reason I would not recommend this product.

      Untame
      We released him into the water last year while my daughter was swimming. He immediately targeted her. She is now a left leg amputee. Really wish we would've been warned that he was so aggressive.

      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 .

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

      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

      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.

      Pool Pop-Up Floating Chlorinator
      Have only had a couple of week but feel it will be a good asset for my pool. It has already let me know I need to add chlorine

      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.

      excellent purchase
      Picked up the floating chlorinator for our 18' pool. works much better thatn the inline filter pump chlorinator. It works exactly as described and am very happy with the chlorine level.

      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

      works well
      It was recommended by the pool co that I use for my supplies. I works very well. no problems. the thermometer is an added attraction.

      Good for chlorine not for thermometer
      We've had this product for a few months now and the thermometer doesn't work anymore. It is nice to have it hold the 3in chlorine tabs if you don't have anywhere else for them.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    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.
