Essential Info

Enjoy swimming in the clearest, cleanest, softest water imaginable, without the unpleasant smell or taste of chlorine! With the Floatron Solar Powered Pool Purifier, a low-maintenance pool purification system that reduces chlorine use by as much as 80%, you and your family will enjoy swimming in amazingly pure water without all the negatives associated with chemically treated pool water. No more bleached hair or bathing suits, dry skin or itchy eyes!

This completely safe and non-toxic solar pool purifier floats in your pool and releases mineral ions into the water. While the mineral ions are absolutely harmless to you, they effectively halt the growth of algae and other microorganisms. The ionized water is so safe, it falls within the EPA established drinking water standards. You can even swim with the unit without harming the purification process or your health! The pool purifier's advanced solar panels generate its own power, costing absolutely nothing to power it! The unit requires only low-powered current, so there's absolutely no electrical shock hazard.


What's Included

  • 1x - Mineral electrode
  • 1x - Ion test kit
  • 1x - Mineral electrode cleaning brush

  • More Info

    Unlike chlorine, which quickly loses potency, the mineral ions remain effective for weeks. They will not evaporate out, even keeping water fresh in pools that are covered during the off-season. The Solar Powered Pool Purifier begins producing ions immediately after being placed in a pool when exposed to sunlight, and will produce ion levels sufficient for pool purification within two weeks (depending on pool volume).The purifier can handle pools up to 30,000 gallons. For larger pools, more than one solar purifier may be required. You may also consider using two purifiers during the summer months to prevent the likelihood of bacteria growth in warmer waters. The purifier is not recommended for use in pools over 30,000 gallons nor in pools with screened or glass enclosures (because there may not be enough sunlight penetration with enclosed pools).

    Because some pool contaminants, like dust or suntan lotion, are not affected by mineral ions, you will still need to add a small amount of chlorine or other oxidizer to neutralize them. Otherwise, there is practically no maintenance other than cleaning the mineral electrode once a week with a jet of water from a garden hose nozzle. The rinse is a great fertilizer around the yard, too. You will receive everything you need to get started and operate for 1 to 2 seasons, depending on amount of usage.

    This really works to keep pool clean & water clear. Be sure to read all instructions before using. Pool must be balanced and clean before using. Some think you can put it in a green pool & get results. Not so. But with proper use you will cut your chlorine bill in half or more. I used this last summer in a 15' X 30' above ground and only needed 4 3" chlorine tabs floating for the whole swim season... May - September. Loved it so much I bought one for my dad for Christmas. He's been using his in an inground 30' X 50' all season and can not believe how crystal clear his pool has remained.
    JRUSSO -- New Jersey   7/1/2014
    you first need to get your ph to the 7.2 and your free chlorine to the 7.0 normal stages. Then put in flotron. i have had product for over 10yrs. Still using same unit, just purchase new rod everyt 2 seasons. I have 40K pool. Works perfectly. Was just in it last night and still feel smooth and silky today. I still need chlorine since i really should have 2 for 40K, but 1 does the trick if uou are looking ofr clean sliky smooth water. I never have to use an algacide or anyrthing else. Just make sure your ph level is correct or it will not work properly. Love the product and so does everyone that swims in the pool. They say its softer than their showers.
    LLP from Ohio -- sylvania, Ohio   4/28/2014
    I have had a floatron in the past, when it finally needed replacing, I opted for chlorine, not realizing just HOW much the floatron had truly been saving me! I cannot wait for my new floatron to arrive for this years swimming season. Yes, you have to start with a clean pool, but once you do, the floatron takes over!
    ALMERO -- george, Guyana   8/16/2013
    still early to see the effect but the product is solid, well made
    SIMON -- baltimore, MD   8/3/2013
    As others have said, the pool needs to be in good condition before you start using the Floatron, it is not meant as a quick fix e.g. for green pools, but as a replacement for algae chemicals and to help reduce chlorine use over time. After a month I can barely see any blue in the tests, but the anode is defintely dissolving so I know I need to be patient for a month or two more. Copper algaecide just makes good sense, for instance it's been the major component of boat anti-fouling paint for decades.
    SUSAN -- washington, MO   6/28/2013
    Love it highly recommended to all my friends that have a pool Its chemical free which I love Thank You
    Jerry Keltner -- hope,Indiana   6/19/2013

    MarĂ­a Teresa -- Colombia   5/5/2013
    Where can I get the electrode for floatron device? Thanks
    Judith -- Sydney Australia   3/25/2013
    Great product and have recommended it to many others! But its a pity that the thumbscrews are very poorly made and snap off so you can't use the basket to catch the small flakes.
    JIM -- rockingham, Australia   3/16/2013
    all good thank you
    AARON -- robina, XX   7/31/2012
    Still too early to tell how this will go long term, but so far seems to be working as advertised and I have started to reduce the amount of chlorine in the pool. Great support from Floatron in answer to a query I had.
    FAITH -- schriever, LA   4/18/2012
    Love it Love it Love it!!!
    JOHN -- belivah, Australia   4/15/2012
    Great Service and great product. I can see the benefits of the Floatron already. I have no doubt this product will pay me back my cash outlay in no time.
    KELLY -- statesville, NC   4/5/2012
    I have sent this item back to you for a refund. It just can't do what I need it to do. It might work in a smaller pool or spa but wasn't a good fit for mine. Thank you!
    EUGENE -- austin, TX   4/5/2012
    Purchased a Pool purifier from another company and returned it because it took in water at the top of the unit . The replacement did the same. This purchase is floating properly and taking in no water. Very pleased with the unit.
    Len -- Ontario Canada   3/30/2012
    I have been a floatron owner for over five years now and they work great. There are people on here that think they are going to get a blue reading when you use the test kit after a few weeks or so. The floatron takes a few months to finally start to register a reading on your test kit. All depending on how large your pool is. Let me tell you I have saved hundreds of dollars on chemicals since I starting using the Floatron. I only use very little chlorine now and never have to add anything for algea. I also know it is saving my liner from all the harsh chemicals I used to use.. If your thinking of buying one it is well worth the money.
    DEBRA -- red hill, XX   12/29/2011
    bought to replace same - have been using this device for 13+ yrs-it is extremeley effective & almost eliminates the need for costly & hazardous chemicals & the water is like swimming in a frshwater creek
    PHILLIP -- brisbane, XX   12/14/2011
    Prompt helpful service. I'll be back.
    MICHAEL -- sion hill, XX   8/13/2011
    After 4 weeks in the sun, the test shows it still doesn't register. Must be because our pool contains too much water. It's 38 x 18ft, falling to 6 ft at the deep end
    ROBERT R -- penn valley, CA   8/13/2011
    The plastic screw, that holds the element in place, is poorly made. It broke off, with minimal tightening, after only 2 weeks. The unit is overpriced for what it provides.
