Delphin Brake salt for hot tubs
You use Spa Bromine Salt if you have a spa equipped with a bromine generator. The spa's bromine generator converts the bromine salt into bromine which oxidises dirt particles and as a result you get a bacteria-free bathing water.
For this reason, bromine is a good alternative to chlorine because it does not have the pungent odour of chlorine and is also ideal for use if you or your loved ones are sensitive to chlorine. However, bromine is very effective! Spa Bromine is very effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi because it removes organic contaminants through oxidisation.
In addition, Bromine does not irritate the skin or eyes and has a neutral pH value Bromine is more effective than chlorine at higher pH values. Because of this, Bromine is often used in larger and public spas.
First measure the pH of the bathing water and then adjust the value to 7.0-7.4 if necessary.
Then you need to follow the instructions from the manufacturer of the bromine generator. As a rule of thumb, 1.1 kg of Delphin Spa Bromine Salt is considered sufficient for 1000 litres of bathing water.
- Before adding salt to the bath, dissolve the salt in a bucket of lukewarm water.
Add the water first and then add the Bromine Salt to the bucket of water.
Then pour the solution into the filter compartment or directly into the bath.
- Important! When using a bromine generator, you must measure the pH value regularly and if the value is too high, you must adjust the strength and change parts of the bath water. Measure the bromine and pH value of the spa regularly with test equipment. A suitable bromine value is 2.0-3.0 mg/l.
When using Bromine Salt in the spa, you can add Oxi Booster or SpaChock at any time for shock chlorination and as a result, you will have clear and bacteria-free bathing water.
You should therefore pay close attention to the dosage and also regularly check and adjust the bromine, pH and alkali levels to the recommended values:
Bromine 2,0-4,0 mg/l;
Alkalinity 80-120 mg/l.
Caring for hot tubs
You should change the bathing water regularly and clean the spa at the same time. You should use SpaCare Biofilm Cleaner to clean the built-in pipework. You do this 1 - 2 times a year when you use brake salt. After cleaning, you take the opportunity to change the filters or you clean them thoroughly.
For your daily operation of the spa, you can advantageously have double filters. This means that you can quickly change to clean filters, resulting in clearer bathing water. Next, clean the dirty filter using SpaCare Filter Cleaner. After one to two weeks, it is time to repeat the process and replace the bath filter cartridge with the cleaned one.
It is important that you maintain your hot tub correctly and SpaCare has a very good instruction on their website, click here.
