There is a lot of marketing hype around products that are so
radically different to anything else on the market, so people will
naturally ask how the system works, so that they can make up their own
The floatron uses a chemical process known as ionisation
in order to exert a lethal influence on microscopic organisms such as
The unit consists of electrodes that are powered by a Solar
Cell on the top of the unit. The electrodes cause an electrochemical
reaction and form ions. The ions scatter throughout the water as the
unit floats around the pond, controlling the algae as it goes.
really works! The University of Arizona has conducted numerous studies
and determined that the mineral ions created by the floatron unit are
extremely effective in mineralizing the water - with beneficial minerals
which are inhospitable to microorganisms but no consequence to larger
plants or fish.
Now that's a huge difference!
"Whoa, now hold on! You keep referring to this thing called
Ionisation. What exactly is it, and will it harm my fish?"
Underwater view of ionisation
Ionisation is a chemical process and it does occur naturally in the
environment. In simple terms, it is the process of taking apart a
material, atom by atom. The ionisation process is exactly how water is
able to accumulate trace minerals which help to maintain the purity.
The technique has been practised for many thousands of years; by storing
water in copper and silver containers, ancient Romans kept it fresh and
free from algae and bacteria.
The floatron unit is
designed specifically to take advantage of a chemical reaction that
occurs naturally - the solar panel and the electrodes simply speed up
the process to help you maintain clean, healthy water for your fish!
The floatron will work in swimming pools as well as fish ponds. It is a
natural way to keep your pool clean, clear and healthy. It is safe,
non-toxic and also very economical on your power costs.
