    Switch from Bromine to chlorine in my hot tub

    I want to switch from bromine to chlorine in my hot tub. Do I have to drain the water and refill. Also can I use the same filters i have now.

    Welcome to TFP!

    You will have to drain as adding chlorine to your current tub will just convert the bromide back to bromine. The bromide will dissipate eventually but take an extremely long time to do so, so a water change now is the only way to quickly convert from bromine to chlorine.

    All of your equipment should be just fine with either bromine or chlorine, your filter especially so.
