What about automatic chlorinators?

Automatic chlorinators are not only an ideal way to deliver just the right amount of chlorine to keep your water clear, but they save you time as well. Because automatic chlorinators can be adjusted to give out the exact amount of chlorine needed on a daily basis and can hold from two to eight weeks worth of chlorine, you can count on them to keep your pool's health in check around the clock.

There are three basic types of automatic chlorinators – floating, off-line erosion and in-line erosion. Here's a quick look at each:

floating chlorinatorsFloating Chlorinators, as the name implies, float on the surface of the water which slowly dissolves the chlorine inside. This is the simplest and least expensive type.

off-line erosion chlorinatorsOff-line Erosion Chlorinators tap into the return lines and deliver just the right amount of chlorine from chlorine tablets inside.

in-line erosion chlorinatorsIn-line Erosion Chlorinators are tanks or cylinders that are plumbed directly into your pool's return lines. Water flowing through the tank or cylinder slowly dissolves the chlorine tablets.
