Best Answer

Basically, you just put a few 3" tabs of chlorine in the dispenser and set it in the pool. Sometimes they have adjustments on the bottom which regulate water flow. I usually leave them open for max flow at all times in order to get the maximum amount of chlorine into the water. Also, make certain that you attach it to the ladder or somewhere convenient because it can float and block the skimmers.

When do you use a chlorine float when you also use a solar cover?

You can not use a floating chlorine dispenser and a solar pool cover at the same time. The solar blanket sits on the surface of the water, thus, a floating dispenser would be unable to float freely. It would end up sitting in one spot, unable to circulate in the water. This would result in spot chlorine damage to your solar blanket, and possibly to your pool finish.

It probably would make it worse. Chlorine is heavier than water, so when the dispenser releases chlorine, it would sit at the bottom, rather than drift down.

I can't answer the initial question if chlorine generators give off high chlorine false readings. I have an inline chlorine dispenser and it seems to work just fine for me.

Can you add chlorine straight in to a pool without a chlorine dispenser?

Sure you can use liquid chlorine and walk around the pool. You can use granular chlorine directly into the pool. If it doesn't disolve before it gets to the bottom you should brush it around so it won't stain. Never add pucks/tabs directly to the pool OR THE SKIMMER. (BAD FOR THE EQUIPMENT) They will sink to the bottom and stain.

It is recommended to remove before swimming because there will be a higher concentration of chlorine around the float. Since chlorine is toxic in high levels, you should not swim while it is in the pool.
