I have been doing great with BBB for my pool, but my Sundance hot tub has got me a bit confused.
It is a Bromine System. Floater with bromine tabs, chlorine shock.
Total Bromine: 20 (used K-2006 kit, 10ml water multiplied drops by 1.125)
I added shock on Sunday, now TB is 20. Also I feel like sometimes the Bromine tabs in the floater all of a sudden dissolve quickly while other times they melt slow like they should. Am I crazy?
My wife got a very mild case of hot tub folliculitis (at least that's what I think it is, I am actually a doctor) so I want to make sure I am doing a good job with sanitation. I was hot tub guy'd and using test strips until recently. Now I am getting things on track thanks to TFP.
How do you know if you have a bromide reserve?
How do you know if you need to shock sooner, or later than just once per week? Are there parameters to monitor?
