To achieve all the benefits of Fresh Mineral Water, you need to maintain a low bromine level. This is easy to do with FROG because every product has a convenient and precise control dial. Finding your setting takes a few days of tweaking to experience months of pure relaxation. Here’s how to do it.
- Make sure you have a Mineral Cartridge that is less than 4 months old and set wide open to setting #6.
- Set your Bromine Cartridge setting based on the chart below.
- After 12 hours in the hot tub, test the water with FROG Test Strips to see if the bromine level is in the ideal range of 1.0-2.0 ppm.
- If higher than 2.0, lower the dial by 1 setting. If lower than 1.0, raise the dial by one setting.
- Test again in 12 hours to see the change. If still not in the ideal range, adjust the dial again by 1 setting and test again in 12 hours.
Usually this process takes 2-4 days. If you are consistently under 1.0 ppm for 2 days, add a non-chlorine shock to the hot tub to ensure it does not go cloudy while you are dialing in the right setting.
Once you find that setting, there is no need to touch it unless something changes that will affect the hot tub on a regular basis. For instance, right now there is two of you using the hot tub regularly but next month your two kids come home to live and 4 people are using the tub regularly. That’s the time to readjust your setting.
However, if you are just having a one-day hot tub party for 8 people, you wouldn’t increase your dial setting. That’s the time to shock the hot tub – ideally with a non-chlorine shock before and after the party.
If you find you are getting too much bromine in the hot tub even at the lowest setting or not enough bromine at the highest setting, the dial is probably not the answer.
