The floatron is a unique system that has been developed and tested
extensively in the USA. It is a solar powered unit which generates
mineral ions using an electrode built into the unit which in turn kills
microscopic organisms such as Algae.
Even if you have had some
difficulty maintaining your fish pond in the past and are looking to
turn your currently murky water into crystal clear water for your fish,
the floatron can come to the rescue. Our comprehensive user guide that
accompanies every floatron can assist you in using the floatron in a
wide variety of conditions.
More information about ionisation
and the science behind the floatron is available by clicking on the "How
it Works" link from the left hand side of the screen.
benefit of the floatron system is that it has specifically been designed
for ease of assembly and use. Assembling the unit is as easy as 1, 2 3:
- Hold the spring electrode down in a compressed state and screw
on the mineral electrode in a clockwise direction.
- Place screen assembly over the electrodes and centre hole in the
cage with the bore in the mineral electrode end.
- Thread the thumbscrew into the bore, clockwise until snug.
Now who would have thought that a space age device such as
this, could be so easy to assemble!
Full operating instructions are shipped with every floatron or
you can download them from our web site. We also have some best
practices and tips for maintaining your pond when using the floatron.

While this revolutionary device is going to save you countless
hours of time in pond maintenance; not to mention the back breaking
work that will no longer be necessary, there are a few requirements that your pond
must meet in order to allow you to take advantage of the floatron:
- The body of water must have a recirculating pump system.
- The water must be captive; in other words, there must be no
inflow or outflow of water.
- Total capacity of the pond should not exceed 30,000 gallons
(114,000 litres). If your pond does exceed this limit, an extra
floatron may be required. We recommend speaking to your local
- Sunlight must directly illuminate the solar panel.
