Along with chlorine, bromine is another type of pool sanitiser which needs to be dispensed via a chemical feeder. There are many differences between the two. Bromine, unlike chlorine, has very little smell, causes very little or no eye or skin irritation and is more efficient than chlorine over a wider pH band. Additionally, it is not affected by sunlight and does not require any extra chlorine stabiliser. If you wish to use bromine instead of chlorine, we recommend Blue Horizons Bromine Tablets.
Blue Horizons 20g Bromine Tablets.
pH 3.0 – 3.5
These tablets are ideal for daily dosing of your swimming pool or spa, to produce free active bromine which kills bacteria and other potentially harmful organisms.
Effective over a wide pH range. Check pH value regularly with a test kit and maintain levels between 7.2 -7.6
These tablets are designed for use with bromine feeders and floating dispensers. When feeder device requires refilling with tablets always follow manufacturer’s instructions. Ensure tablets used in the feeder are of the same chemical (Bromo-Chloro-Dimethyl Hydantoin).
IMPORTANT: If other materials have been used previously, wash out the feeder thoroughly before adding tablets.
Adjust feeder to ensure a constant bromine residual is present in the pool or spa
Check bromine levels regularly with a Test Kit and maintain a bromine residual of 2-4 mg/l (ppm) for domestic pools, 3-5 mg/l (ppm) for domestic spas and 4-6 mg/l (ppm) for commercial spas.
Finally, check the pH value regularly with a Test Kit and maintain levels between 7.2 – 7.6
