    Angry Overdid the Sodium Bromide, now what?

    Good evening, all. I did a spa clean today and just added too much sodium bromide. I was supposed to add .9 ounces and I added 3 ounces.
    Anyone have any advice on what I should do now? BR is 4.5 at the moment. TA = 100 and CH = 150, PH 7.8 (jets were running all day).
    Thanks so much.

    Adding too much bromide is not a problem unless you have an ozonator and as a result it is making too much bromine from the bromide.

    Thank you, now I won't worry about it! The articles about bromide being bad for you made me concerned. No ozonator.
