Do floating chlorine dispensers work?

Floating dispensers can sometimes get caught in one location and dispense too much chlorine in a concentrated area, discoloring and even damaging your pool liner. They’re also passive, dispensing chlorine unevenly without flowing water passing over them as part of your pool’s water circulation.

Can you swim with floating chlorinator?

A floating pool chlorinator, also known as a floating chlorine dispenser or feeder, ensures your swimming pool stays sanitized. This level is ideal for swimmers because it isn’t so high that it burns the eyes or skin yet helps keep the pool clean. This pH range works well with floating chlorine dispensers.

Is it better to put chlorine tablets in skimmer or floater?

While a floater does not distribute chlorine as evenly as an in-line chlorinator, it is still a great form of swimming pool chlorination. Never put chlorine tablets into the skimmer baskets of your pool. High levels of chlorine close to the pool pump, pool filter, and pool heater can damage the equipment.

Do I need a floating chlorine dispenser?

Chlorine tablets are slow dissolving and therefore need to be placed in either a floating dispenser, in-line chlorine feeder or a skimmer basket.

Should I use an inline chlorinator?

The inline chlorinator makes it a much sturdier option and fewer parts to replace. It’s way better bang for your buck and well worth looking into.

How often should you put chlorine tablets in your pool?

I recommend at least 1 time every 2 weeks. Once a week is clearly preferable to prevent algae growth. Greater than 2 weeks and the water quality will drop and algae growth will begin.

Are automatic pool chlorinators worth it?

A pool without a chlorinator is akin to an algae-ridden frog pond. We know that does not sound incredibly tempting to swim in, which is why we highly recommend an automatic pool chlorinator to help you keep the right chemical balance in your pool and safe for swimming.

What time of day is best to shock a pool?

The ideal time to shock your pool is in the evening after all swimming is complete. In the evening because the sun will not be boiling the chlorine out of your pool, and after everyone is done swimming because shocking is going to bring the chlorine level up to a level that may be irritating to skin and eyes.
