The Importance of Water Care

Using correct water care products and, of course, the correct amounts will make or break your hot tubbing experience. The results of not using enough chemicals can be catastrophic not only for your hot tub, but also the people who use it. If you forget to regularly add sanitizer to your hot tub or if you want to try and save a little money on maintenance, chlorine may be the way to go. However, if you have sensitive skin, bromine is the better choice, even if it is a little more expensive. Don’t get fooled by the chlorine myth, although it is sometimes useful, often it’s more valuable to use bromine.

Please note that when hot tub chlorine is dissolved in water it creates hypochlorous acid which reacts with bacteria in the water, breaking it down and killing it in the process. During this process the hypochlorous acid molecules will react with other elements and become deactivated, which is why constant maintenance is required.

Chlorine Care

Using a Chlorine hot tub water care system means going with the flow rather than against it, and this has benefits. These benefits include, but are not limited to, lots of troubleshooting information should anything go wrong with your hot tub. This can be helpful, as hot tubs are complicated machines that can experience random issues.

Chlorine became a very popular hot tub water care chemical because of its association with pools, however recently, more and more people are opting to use Bromine hot tub water care systems because it produces less of a smell, plus some say it works more effectively, although the jury is still out. If you do choose Chlorine, always use it with the hot tub cover open to help disperse the smell quicker, plus this way you’ll lessen the chances of doing damage to the underside of the hot tub cover.

Bromine Care

Bromine has a lot of attractive features for users, but one of the main ones is that Bromine offers a low pH value. Its pH value is much lower than Chlorine, making it much less volatile when put in your hot tub. For example, when putting Chlorine into your hot tub you must be very careful to not throw off the balance of your hot tub water. With Bromine you don’t have to worry as much. You just won’t have the chemical balance issues that you get when you use chlorine.

Plus, because Bromine doesn’t gas off as much as Chlorine does, and therefore it doesn’t seem like as much of a chemical as Chlorine. This may seem like a small difference, but appearance and optics are everything, especially when it’s something that is affecting your body and health. Finally, Bromine works in a wide range of pH levels, meaning less headaches for the user.
