Thread: Installing new SPA

    Installing new SPA

    Just a quick question, I have read a lot on the use of chlorine, but little on bromine to sanitize the spa. Wondering what everyone thinks is the better options. The dealer that sold my wife the spa told her to use bromine. So I need a good explanation which one is better and why.

    Thank you for the help

    Bromine doesn't break down as quickly in the warmer temperatures.
    From pinch a penny blog:
    "Bromine is more expensive to purchase than chlorine, but it breaks down more slowly in high water temperatures than chlorine, making it a popular sanitizing choice for spas and hot tubs and for indoor pools."
