I've tried reading the forums, and even looked at the pool calculator, but each seems to be missing a step.
I jus set up an Intex hot tub, filled it with water, added 1 oz of sodium bromide, then added a few bromide tablets to the floater. In the time it took us to get dressed for the spa the water turned green. Why?
How much Clorox do I add to shock the spa and kill the green (the spa holds 210 gallons and is at 101 degrees right now). Or is this normal? My gut says no.
I have test strips to use eventually, but it seems pointless right now.
Can someone help?
