Bromine is the number one alternative when it comes to swimming pool chemicals. Bromine works as a great sanitiser, oxidiser, and algaecide for swimming pools and is a favourite among spa and hot tub owners thanks to it working better in warmer temperatures.
As with chlorine treatments, bromine is used to kill bacteria and contaminants in swimming pool water to keep everything as clean and hygienic as possible. But, that’s where the similarities end.
Chlorine is more readily available and effective when it comes to cleaning both indoor and outdoor pools, however, it can leave a strong scent behind, bleach your vinyl pool liner, and even irritate the skin.
Bromine, on the other hand, has no strong scent and is much gentler on the skin than chlorine. It also works well with vinyl pool liners and does an amazing job at sanitising high-temperature pools and hot tubs.
During periods of heavy use, such as summer, it is recommended that you chemically shock your pool every week in order to keep it clean and to keep your pH balance level. This can be done with chlorine, bromine, or any other swimming pool sanitiser.
Please note, you should never mix any separate swimming pool chemicals together as this can result in a potentially dangerous chemical reaction.
