Best Bromine for your Hot Tub

Keep reading our guide to learn which one of the Bromine products is perfect for you.

Bromine is just as effective as chlorine at eliminating harmful, illness-causing germs in spa water when used in the correct amounts. However, it can be less irritating to the body than chlorine. Bromine also has the added advantage of increased stability in higher temperatures and wider pH ranges than chlorine. As a result, as conditions in your hot tub fluctuate, bromine will last longer as an effective sanitizer.  For your convenience, we’ve made a review for you and found 8 of the best spa sanitizers on the market.
