      Much nicer than my previous floater
      Interesting and useful feature of tilting when more chlorine tablets need to be added to the floater. It is easy to open and close the floater, and it appears to be sturdy.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Jumbo Chlorinator
      Inexpensive and serves the purpose we require; plus holds additional tablets.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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
    2. 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.

      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 .

      Cute Shark

    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.
