I've read the sticky. Searches turn up a wealth of info. but I soon get overwhelmed with chemistry talk.
Maybe I need to get deep into the chemistry but I'm hoping not.
I've got the alkalinty @ 80. I'm using bromine tabs in a floater. No ozonator.
Before bathing, PH and bromine looked good on the test strip.
After bathing (2 people for 1 hour) I put in a cup of Clorox (355 gal. tub) and ran the jets for an hour per the sticky.
The ph and bromine spiked to off the chart.
Is this to be expected and how long before they come down to a level that's safe to bathe in?
I ask this now because I have guests coming tomorrow afternoon and some will want to use the tub and I'm concerned that the chlorine level may still be too high at that time. Should I stick my stinky feet in there now to use up some of the chlorine?
