I was just reading another's post about shocking a bromine based spa. I know, I've been pool stored before, but I used to use a bromine floater with tabs (for 3 years), but the guy at the pool store( last summer) said I would be better off using granular bromine that can be used before entering the spa each time and that it also works as a shock. Is that true? is the first question. My spa is 400 gallons, above ground. I use about 3 tablespoons each time.
The next question I have is, my pool is chlorine based. Is there any problem going from the bromine based spa into the chlorine based pool and vice versa?
We use to have bromine spa- above ground (not attached to the above ground pool) and a baqua pool. It never seemed to cause a problem, but after converting from baqu to chlorine and watching all of the colors, I'm surprised we didn't have problems.
Thanks for your input.
