    Emptying spa in the pool

    Spa: 415 gallons, stand alone, 14 years old
    On a scale of 0 to 10 with 0 being not at all a problem and 10 being absolutely don't do it. Can I drain my spa water into my pool?
    Thank-you, Mary

    Hi Mary, and welcome!

    If you've treated the Spa with Bromine, I would not do that.

    I'll second that. Big time (unless your pool is bromine too).

    What if the hot tub were chlorine? Whenever we changed our hot tubs water it was because it was getting 'greasy' or too hard to keep clean, I assume from the build up of body oils and contaminants etc... I guess the question is, if you're water is bad enough that you need to change it, why would you want to?
