I have just put a new spa in our back yard to compliment our inground pool. I am able to use BBB and SWG to keep pool crystal clear through the summer. The Spa, after 2 weeks has become a major P.I.T.A to keep clean, bromine levels appropriate and get rid of foam when using air.
I love the fact that this site informed me on how pool companies misinform people and get them to buy chemicals that are needless in our pools.
I am curious if anyone can help me out with my Spa. I have a Salt System on it, yet I use Brome Add, so I gather that is the bromine, yet, each nite, after use, I am told to drop in Spa Pucks, which are essentially Chlorine Shock?
Is there a way to run my Spa similar to my pool, Chlorine (BLEACH) seems alot easier way to keep it, rather then the hundreds and hundreds of $ that will be spent Spa Cal, Spa Buffer, Bubble Burst, Softener and the list goes on.
Help would be appreciated, I understand that Chlorine wont last as long at higher temps, but there has to be an easier way to run this Spa.
