    Bromine vs Chlorine - Which will discolor stonework?

    I'm looking into building an infinity hot tub and am worried about possibly discoloring the stone work from potential splashing on the infinity edge of the hot tub. My question is whether or not bromine would discolor stonework just as much as chlorine might. I'm a newb and just doing some preliminary research. Thanks in advance!

    My guess is that they would be very similar. Although if you're tub is balanced then the amount of chlorine or bromine shouldn't really discolor anything.

    Neither chlorine or bromine will discolor stonework unless the levels are way way way too high. The most common problem with stonework within splash range of the water is calcium buildup from evaporating water.
