I am a first time spa owner and whats the difference between bromine and chlorine and which is better
Is it dangerous to put bromine in a chlorine spa?
Everything you want to know about bromine;http://www.rhtubs.com/BROMINE.htmEveryhting about chlorine (too much);http://www.rhtubs.com/chlorine.htm
You most likely have a bromine spa now bama. Any chlorine you add just reactivates the bromine.Gomb, personally, I use a combination of a passive copper ion system with occasional chlorine. Typically I use the sauna first, then rinse off with a bucket of hot tub water. I kinda figure there isn't much "dirt: getting into the water.
Not without opening my self up to 6 figure fines from the EPA (yes, they've visited me and warned me). As it's not EPA approved, it's not something I can recommend I can tell you though, that my hot tub is heated by a coil of copper pipe running around the inside the tub. Hot water from my water heater is thermostatically pumped through the pipe for heat.
