    Current results (bromine), what to fix first?

    As of this morning we have not used it since switching to bromine as Br level has been too high

    pH 7.5

    Br 15.75? (Using FC test from TF-100, 14 drops*.5*2.25) added 2 oz hydrogen peroxide yesterday, should I add 2 more?

    CH 100 (s/b 120-150) add hardness or am I close enough?

    TA 30 (s/b 100) add baking soda?

    Temp 100

    Borates not added yet (s/b 50)

    What order should I fix these? Do I need to wait for one to be correct before I move on to the next?

    Re: Current results (bromine), what to fix first?

    Is this for a spa or pool? CH is probably OK, if it foams up any then increase to 150. TA should be more like 50 or 60 , raise it to 50 now. Test PH in 15 minutes and adjust to 7.6.

    I don't know much about borates.

    For a spa, read this for the good info on managing PH, TA and borates, How do I use Chlorine in my Spa (or pool)?


    Edit: just noticed this is in the spa forum

    Sorry it's for a spa, didn't think to specify that
