  1. I have a few questions - I’ll be honest, I’m trying to save some money while still having sanitized safe water. My questions are: 1) instead of starting with the sodium bromide and then keeping bromine tablets in a floater (what I’m trying to avoid) could I instead start up a fresh filled tub, then add sodium bromide granular and then just shock everytime I got out of the tub? Obviously as water level dropped I’d add more sodium bromide. To me this seems way cheaper than to have constant tabs being dissolved. Will this work/be effective ? If so, how often if it’s being used a few times a week should more sodium bromide be added? 2) are brom tabs in a floater cheaper than the frog cartridge system?
  2. Hello - I have a 450gal tub that is 2 months old and I have a constant recurring issue. I filled the tub, added sodium bromide and shocked with MPS...I also have a bromine floater that is in the tub that I have set to "all the way open". I find it impossible to maintain a bromine readout from day to day. If I add dichlor I get a nice readout, but within 18 hours the readout goes to 0. Last night, I shocked w/MPS to try and reactivate the bromine. I will run a test strip tonight to see if there is anything, but the only thing I noticed this morning is that it made my water cloudy... Please help! UPDATE: Last night I was actually able to get a readout of bromine in my spa, which means something is finally working. The next question I have would be how do I maintain this level of bromine? Just keep shocking with MPS weekly, or is something else required more than that?

  4. Have had new tub for about a week. Day we got it, filled up, tested neg for metals so proceeded to use non chlorine shock after adjusting ph. Used a floating bromine dispenser, After a few days, still no bromine registered at testing. Left for vacation. Rash appeared on 3 of us (looks like mosquito bites, assuming pseudomonas from lack of bromine). Not too concerned with that and sure it will go away soon. came home to a slightly green translucent tub, barely registering bromine. Spa place recommended hyperchlorinating using granular chlorine. This definitely helped some with the green color, but we ultimately chose to drain, scrub and refill. After filling today, I adjusted ph, which is about 7.6-7.8, and added maintenance chlorine just to keep the water sanitized and not risk pseudomonas infectioN. I plan to get sodium bromide tomorrow to create a bank, then use the bromide floater. Am I missing anything? Is it safe to use today since we have added chlorine to sanitize?
