Floatron is the original
portable water purifier combining solar electric power generation
with a process called ionization. This process was first
developed by NASA for use aboard moon-bound Apollo spacecraft
to maintain pure drinking water. By introducing atomic
amounts of specific minerals into water, microorganisms such
as algae and bacteria cannot survive. While these ions,
or atoms, are completely safe and non-toxic to you, microscopic
life forms cannot exist under their influence. Unlike chlorine,
which loses potency after only hours, the mineral ions produced
by the floatron remain effective for weeks.
When floating on the water, sunlight
is converted into electricity by the advanced technology solar
panel. This harmless, low power current energizes a specially
alloyed metallic electrode below waterline. This causes
the release of mineral ions into the surrounding water. The
ionized water now efficiently controls microorganism growth in
Some contaminants in your pool such as dust, suntan lotion, body
fluids, etc. are not affected by minerals. An accumulation
of these things will tend to cloud the water, therefore a small
amount of chlorine is necessary to dissolve them to maintain
crystal clear conditions. Only small amounts are necessary.
AN 80% REDUCTION IN CHLORINE REQUIREMENT IS TYPICAL. If
no chlorine at all is preferred, other oxidizers may be substituted
such as bromine, or oxygen based compounds, which are readily
Safe, Effective, and Economical
Floatron is totally safe
and non-toxic, with absolutely no electrical shock hazard. Swimming
with the unit in the water is perfectly normal, and eliminates
the irritations, odors, and bleaching associated with chlorine.
Floatron ionized water
falls within EPA established drinking water standards and avoids
the toxicity of high chemical levels. Additionally, the
water remains clear and stable for extended periods because the
minerals do not evaporate out. Unlike chlorine, hot summer
conditions do not degrade the performance of the ions. In
fact, the hotter it is, the better it works.
The Floatron costs nothing
to power and operate. The only part requiring replacement
is the mineral electrode which will last approximately 1-2 years
and takes only a minute to change. Replacement cost is minimal.
Floatron is built to last.
Made in the USA under strict quality controls. No
moving parts. Constructed of space-age polymers which are
weather, water, sunlight, and chemical resistant. The solar
panel incorporates the most efficient photovoltaic cells available.
The mineral electrode is alloyed from the special combination
of ultra pure elemental metals.
Every Floatron is backed by a
24 month coverage against defects in materials and workmanship.
