I use Autoclear Plus SWG. I had a yellow or brown algae problem. was recommended "the yellow stuff" (98% sodium bromide) to my pool to treat it. It seems start to work, but I did not know i converted my chlorine pool to bromine. I HAVE NOT RUN MY SWG SINCE I added 18 ounces of sodium bromide to 25,000 gallon pool then added 2 lbs. of shock the same day and 2 lbs of shock the next day. Is that enough to make my pool start producing bromine if I turn my SWG on and start sanitizing. If so, how the **** do I get the sodium bromide out of my pool. I know there about the same, but bromine will not hold up in hot sunny days, and the chlorine will. This is my second salt cell, I dont want to overuse it producing enough chlorine to activate the bromine (or something like that) anyway, I know the salt cell will have to work harder. What can I do to get the bromide ions or sodium bromide out of my pool without draining it. I am not going to put any more sodium bromide in. Will that starve it or am I screwed. It is going thru bags of shock fast. have added 4 more bags of shock. Algae seems to be turning gray instead of dark brown.
test results before adding sodium bromide to pool
pH - 7.6
TA - 80
FC - 3
TC - 2
CH - 250
CYA - 80
Water looks great just had brown "dirt" in certain creases in pool. Would vacuum it up, it would come back the next day. But it sparkling blue. Just the Mustard algae.
