Using colloidal silver to sanitize

Recommended Posts

 We are currently using bromine in our Saluspa vinyl spa. It seems to work well, but we've been getting slippery slime on the floor.  On a hunch, I recently put in two cups of colloidal silver and the slime has disappeared.  (We have a CS generator, so it costs practically nothing.)

 How do other silver products work?

Silver will kill biofilms and algae but, like copper and zinc, is not a FAST ACTING sanitizer. Silver based algaecides have been on the market for many years. and the Nature 2 and Spa Frog products are silver based. However, none of these are a replacement for a fast acting residual sanitizer such as chlorine or bromine because the kill times for pathogens are too slow.
