Take the guesswork out of chlorinating your pool with an automatic chemical feeder from Pool Supply Unlimited. Our selection of offline and inline chlorine feeders from top brands like Rainbow and Aquastar make it easy to care for your pool, allowing you to maintain it less and enjoy it more.
How Do Automatic Chlorine Feeders Work?
The job of a pool chlorine feeder is to gradually dispense sanitizer (either chlorine or bromine) at a set rate into your pool water. This controlled distribution of chlorine plugs directly into your pool’s pump
system to properly sanitize the water returning to the pool. There are two different types of automatic pool chlorinators, inline and offline chlorinators. Choosing the right automatic chlorine feeder will depend on your pool type and filtration system compatibility.
Inline vs. Offline
The main difference between inline and offline automatic chlorine feeders is how they are installed. Inline pool chlorinators are permanently installed into the pool’s water return line. Offline chlorinators, on the other hand, are tied to a separate line coming from the pool’s main water supply. For this reason, offline chlorinators can be easily uninstalled or retrofitted to your pool.
The simple design of inline pool chlorinators makes them easy to both install and maintain. What’s more, inline pool chlorinators are said to have a more attractive appearance, since there are no extra hoses, clamps, or attachments needed for installation. Offline automatic chlorine feeders are a great option for existing pools since they can be retrofitted.
