Why is bromine better for hot tubs?

We generally recommend bromine over chlorine for the following reasons:
    • Bromine is easier on your skin and has a gentler smell
    • Bromines will be reactivated when we shock it every visit. Whereas chlorine will only work once, bromine continues to be an active sanitizer
    • Bromine is better at killing bacteria and viruses
    • Bromine is not affected by PH swings and continues to be effective

Check out the chart below. At perfect PH bromine is 94% effective where as chlorine is only 50% effective. you need to have really acidic water, which is not good for the hot tub to get highly effective chlorine. bromine is superior.
