    Bromine and ORP

    Our state code requires a minimum of 650 mv when measuring ORP but it doesn't distinguish between chlorine or bromine.
    Will ORP readings be the same whether chlorine or bromine is used?
    I have read a lot about mv being used as a measure of sanitization but nothing about the disinfectants involved.

    Any thoughts?

    Similar, but not exactly the same. ORP usually is a little lower for bromine than for chlorine.
