I have a 400 gal spa. I have been using the bromine for couple of years, but it looks like I was using it all wrong. I have read the "How do I use Bromine in my spa (or pool)?" and have couple of questions. Every time I fill the spa with water, I just added the Leisure Time bromine starter powder and bromine tablets.I always was wondering what do I need to use to shock the water. I was under impression that bromine and bleach could not be used together, well apparently, it is not so. Since my spa does not have "ozone" and I am using the bromine tablets, I would need to use the 3 steps method.
Just want to confirm:
According to the 3 steps method I need to do the following: Once I fill the spa with new water, I need to add the Leisure Time sodium bromide. "Shock with your preferred oxidizer", I can use regular 6% or now 8.25% bleach. Finally add floater with bromine tablets.
