Is this an indoor or outdoor pool?

Bromine is an excellent (but expen$ive) indoor sanitizer, but is not suggested for outdoor pool because it RAPIDLY degrades in sunlight. CYA doesn't help like it does chlorine.

ONLY 50lbs in one season?! That's a lot of Bromine. You would use one half to one third of that with chlorine and proper CYA levels. (and a lot less money).

You might want to consider including OZONE if you have some spare money tod o so that will bring your Bromine usage down to 40% of your original.

However as backglass stated Bromine is better suited for indoor but dont get yourself wrong Bromine is always a better choice than chlorine, better algeacidal proterties less related carcinogistic problems.......

A cheaper alternative is to use those water clarifier blocks, gels out there in the market it will defiantely reduce yr bromine consumptiona s well.

BTW do get yourself a sensor to regulate the Bromine levels dont trust the setting on the valves from the Hayward or rest of them products dont work and will only cause an overfeed.

Return to “Chlorine”
