Bactericide, Algaecide, & Disinfectant with No Chlorine Odor
Sanitizing is the most important step in maintaining a clean, healthy spa or hot tub. Bacteria and algae tend to grow more rapidly in hot water, so it's important to keep your sanitizer at the recommended levels at all times.
Our Spa Bromine Tablets are a sanitizer, bactericide and algaecide that have no chlorine odor for spas and hot tubs. Brominating tablets tend to be more stable in warm water, making them an excellent sanitizer choice for spas and hot tubs.
Spa Bromine Tablets Directions for UseNote: Keep spa pH between 7.2 and 7.6 and never allow it to fall below 7.0.
The treatment necessary for your spa will change considerably depending upon those factors that burden the disinfection system. Some of the factors that will vary the required treatment are water temperature, bather load, exposure to windblown debris, thunder- or rainstorms, and length of filtration cycle.
Spas and Hot Tubs:
Before initially using Spa Bromine Tablets in your spa or hot tub you will need to add 1/2 oz. of sodium bromide for each 100 gallons of water. The same treatment should be followed each time you drain and refill your spa or hot tub with fresh water.
Introduce 3 tablets per 300 gallons of spa water with the use of a floating tablet feeder or automatic brominator installed on the spa equipment. Adjust tablet feeder or brominator to obtain an active bromine residual of at least 2 ppm. Maintain spa by adding 3 tablets per 300 gallons every 5-7 days or as needed to maintain an active bromine residual of 2 ppm at all times.
Spa water has a tendency to foam and cloudiness is directly proportional to the amount of spa use. Cloudiness is due to the accumulation of body fats, oils and contaminants too small for the filtration equipment to remove, and is linked to rapid escalation of total dissolved solids in the water.
To a great extent, defoamers, clarifiers, as well as shock treatments, demineralizers, or sequestering agents can be used to clear the water. When water clarification cannot be achieved, draining, cleaning, and refilling the spa is recommended.
