Chlorine vs Bromine

Postby steq184 » Sun 04 Sep, 2005 14:13

I am after some advice on whether to use chlorine or bromine in our 15 foot pool. It should be up and running in around a couple of weeks so quite urgent. I am leaning towards Bromine as we have a hot tub and use Bromine in that, so this way I only have to buy one set of chemicals. Also if it make any difference we're going to use a auto feeder.
I really appreciate any help indeed.

My Pool: These tough cavities and pores deliver algae a place to cover and speak to home, making pool ownership an awful lot extra tough. Concrete pool developers educate their clients that weekly brushing of the complete pool surface is obligatory to preserve algae at bay. In addition, chemical usage in concrete pools is plenty better due to the want to penetrate the pool floor to kill algae.

There appears to be many varieties of chlorine on the market, and you may find a totally wide variety of charges. Each pool deliver corporation works hard to make their chlorine product seem new and one-of-a-kind, however upon close inspection you may locate that the most effective real difference which can separate one logo of chlorine from some other is the awareness of the lively substances within the chemical. The chemical “Bromine” could be very just like chlorine within the way that it kills bacteria and harmful contaminants, however the chemicals react in exceptional approaches within the swimming pool water. Bromine is most commonly used to sanitize spas/warm tubs due to the fact it's miles more stable than chlorine within the warmer temperatures.

That is the sort of post I like least, says nothing at all.
Chlorine is chlorine, packaged chlorine in tablet form has stabiliser in it. Liquid doesn't normally.

Bromine still requires a product to activate it be that chlorine or something else so not one product. Bromine is more toxic to humans and costs more. Only saving is more stable at higher temp.

Return to “Chlorine”
