These are compounds formed when bromine combines with nitrogen from body oils, urine, perspiration, etc. Unlike chloramines, bromamines have no pungent odour and are effective sanitizers.
A halogen sanitizer (in the same chemical family as chlorine). Bromine is commonly used in stick, tablet, or granular form.
The amount of dissolved calcium in the spa water. This should be approximately 50 -150 ppm (ACE: 25 – 75 ppm). High levels of calcium can cause cloudy water and scaling. Low levels can cause harm to the spa equipment.
Compounds formed when chlorine combines with nitrogen from body oils, urine, perspiration, etc. Chloramines can cause eye irritation as well as have a strong odour. Unlike bromamines, chloramines are weaker, slower sanitizers.
An efficient sanitizing chemical for spas. We recommend the use of sodium dichlor-type granulated chlorine. This type is preferred because it is totally soluble and nearly pH neutral.
Chlorine (or Bromine) Residual
The amount of chlorine or bromine remaining after chlorine or bromine demand has been satisfied. The residual is, therefore, the amount of sanitizer which is chemically available to kill bacteria, viruses, and algae.
The gradual wearing away of metal and plastic spa parts, usually caused by chemical action. Generally, corrosion is caused by low pH or by water with levels of TA, CH, pH, or sanitizer which are outside the recommended ranges.
Any one of these five elements: fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine.
Monopersulphate is the non-chlorine oxidiser used with the FRESHWATERAG+ silver ion purification system as a shock alternative. It is not a sanitiser.
The formulation of nitric acid, a highly corrosive chemical, is a by-product of the ozone generating process. Nitric acid is produced in very small quantities and is readily dissolved in the water stream with ozone.
