Spa Selections Brom-Start, 2 oz.

Enjoy sparkling-clean hot tub water without the odor of chlorine bleach. Before sanitizing new hot tub water with bromine tablets, use Spa Selections Brom-Start to establish a reserve of bromide. Ideal for whenever you drain or refill your hot tub water. Spa Selections Brom-Start is part of the 2-Step Bromine Sanitizing System; apply directly to the hot tub water before sanitizing with Spa Selections Bromine Tablets. Pour 1/2 ounce of Brom-Start per 100 gallons of spa water to establish a 30 ppm (parts per million) bromide reserve. In addition to changing hot tub water every 90 days (or more frequently with more use), proper sanitization practices recommend shocking the spa after every use — especially if there are several users within a 24-hour period.

Sanitizing With a Bromine System

Effective Over Wider pH Range
Bromine disinfectants, such as Spa Selections Bromine Tablets, are as effective as chlorine and work over a wider pH range.
No Chlorine Odor
Bromine sanitizing systems help give you sparkling-clean hot tub water without the smell of chlorine.
Won’t Irritate Eyes
In addition to low odor, bromine tablets for spas and hot tubs won’t cause eye irritation or bleach bathing suits.

Start Sanitizing With Brom-Start

Establish Bromine Reserve
Begin with Spa Selections Brom-Start whenever you drain and refill hot tub water. This helps establish a bromine reserve so the bromine sanitizer works more effectively.
Fill Floater With Bromine Tablets
Next, fill your hot tub floater with Spa Selections Bromine Tablets; do not mix with chlorine or other bromine tablet. Floaters help provide continuous sanitization.
Use Non-Chlorine Shock
Remove organic contaminants for fresh, clear and odor-free water. For best results, use once per week (or more frequently depending on use and number of bathers).


Frequently Asked Questions

A common cause of foam is the rapidly moving water combined with users who have soaps and detergents on their bodies and swimsuits. Showering before entering the spa and using Spa Selections Foam Out helps reduce foaming. Organic waste buildup can also cause foaming. If you are sanitizing your spa with bromine, you should shock your spa with Spa Selections Non-Chlorine Shock Oxidizer on a regular basis to oxidize the waste from the water and reduce foaming.
Spa Selections Bromine is a two-part system, including Spa Selections Brominating Tablets and Spa Selections Brom-Start. Overall, bromine tends to be more popular among spa owners because unlike chlorine, bromine is effective over a wider pH range, doesn't irritate your eyes and will not bleach bathing suits. Additionally, bromine is an effective sanitizer in its combined form and doesn't smell. Many spa owners, however, elect to sanitize with chlorine. Chlorine is traditionally used in pools and is an effective sanitizer and oxidizer. Spa Selections Chlorinating Granules are easy to use and keep the water sparkling clean!
How often you shock spa water depends on the sanitizer and the number of users in a 24-hour period. If you are using Spa Selections Bromine Tablets and Spa Selections Brom-Start, it is recommended that you shock each time you finish using your spa. If you are using Spa Selections Chlorinating Granules, it is recommended that you shock at least one time per week. It may be necessary to shock more often if the user load is heavy or the water is cloudy.
