After draining and refilling my spa, I can't seem to get any bromine to register. I've added sodium bromide, an oxidizer (shock) and it's had a brominator floater running wide open in there for more than a week.
Still zip on bromine. I am using test strips because my kit hasn't arrived yet, but I've had my local pool shop confirm. 0.0 total bromine.
PH and alkalinity was little low and they had me add 6oz of baking soda.
(one side note, my heater is not working and scheduled for repair this week, water temp is about 90 degrees and obviously no one has been in the spa since it was drained)
What could be causing this? Could it be related to my bad heater?
