CHEMICAL-FREE WATER CLEANER The floatron is a portable, floating water purifier, combining solar power


with mineral ionization to keep pools clear by introducing micro amounts of specific elements into the water. The mineralized water controls microorganisms such as algae and bacteria. Unlike chlorine, which can lose potency after just a few hours, mineral ions remain effective for weeks. This product’s PV panel uses the sun to produce a low-power current that energizes a specially alloyed mineral electrode below the waterline thereby mineralizing water as it floats around the pool. No installation is necessary, and it is made in the USA. www.floatron.com
