Bromine is similar to chlorine in its effectiveness as a sanitiser but there are some important
– Bromine should be dosed into the pool via a chemical feeder (brominator), which is usually installed in the plant room after the filter and heater.
– Bromine, like chlorine, combines with organic compounds to form bromamines, but unlike chloramines, bromamines cause little or no eye, skin and nasal irritation. Also there is not the pungent smell sometimes associated with certain types of chloramines.
– As it takes 2.2mg/l of bromine to equal 1mg/l free chlorine, so bromine levels need to be kept higher between 3.0 to 5mg/l.
– Bromine retains better levels of efficiency over a wider pH band than chlorine.
