Should I use a floating chlorine dispenser in my liner pool ?
We do not recommend using floating chlorine dispensers in vinyl liner pools. They are great until they get caught in the step or skimmer area or sink to the floor of the pool, laying chlorine right onto the vinyl.
Below, you can see the chlorine damage to a vinyl liner caused by a floating chlorine dispenser.
To the left is another example of chlorine damage from a floating chlorine dispenser. The floating chlorinator got caught under the winter cover against the wall and bleached the liner.
We recommend always introducing Bioguard Silk Smart Sticks into the water through the skimmer or Bioguard Silk Tabs in an automatic feeder. Be careful with your vinyl liner and don’t ever put chemicals directly in the pool or in a floating chlorine dispenser.
