Chemiphase Bromine pool chemicals are an alternative to traditional chlorine-based products for sanitising and disinfecting swimming pool water. Bromine is a chemical element that belongs to the halogen group, and like chlorine, it has excellent sanitizing properties, effectively killing bacteria, viruses, and algae in pool water. Bromine is particularly well-suited for use in hot tubs and spas, as it remains stable at higher temperatures compared to chlorine. Here are some common types of bromine pool chemicals:
Chemiphase Bromine Chemical Range
- Bromine Tablets: Similar to chlorine tablets, bromine tablets are slow-dissolving and designed for use in floating dispensers, skimmers, or automatic brominators. They release bromine gradually to maintain consistent sanitizer levels in the pool water.
- Bromine Granules: Bromine granules are used for quick adjustments of bromine levels or as a shock treatment for pool water.
- Bromine Test Strips: Test strips are used to measure the bromine levels in the pool water and ensure that the sanitizer concentration remains within the recommended range.
- Bromine Booster: Bromine boosters are used to increase bromine levels in the water quickly, especially after heavy pool usage or during pool startup.
- Bromine Floater: A bromine floater is a floating device that holds bromine tablets and dispenses bromine into the water as it floats around the pool.
- Bromine Spa Start-Up Kits: These kits typically include various bromine products, such as tablets, granules, and test strips, to help establish proper bromine levels when setting up a new spa or hot tub.
It's important to note that bromine and chlorine are not interchangeable in terms of pool chemicals. If a pool or spa is treated with bromine, it should not be switched to chlorine without a proper conversion process, and vice versa. Each chemical has its own unique characteristics and requirements for maintaining water quality.
As with any pool chemicals, it's essential to use bromine pool products according to the manufacturer's instructions and maintain proper water chemistry through regular testing. Proper pool maintenance, including filtration and circulation, is also vital for effective bromine distribution and water clarity. Additionally, pool owners should store bromine pool chemicals safely, away from children and pets, and follow safety guidelines when handling and using pool chemicals.
