Bromination Regular Maintenance Schedule

Run the pump a minimum of 10 hours a day to ensure adequate filtration and circulation.

Twice a week:

Twice a week, test your pH and bromine residual. Adjust the automatic brominator as needed to maintain 2.0 – 4.0 ppm total bromine residual for residential pools, and 4.0 – 6.0 ppm for commercial pools. Adjust the pH to 7.4 – 7.6. NOTE: Make sure when testing pH with phenol red to use up to 5 drops of chlorine neutraliser to ensure accurate readings.

Once a week:

Shock with 1 bag of Lite per 50,000 litres or 1 bag of Burn Out Extreme per 50,000 litres or 150 grams of Burn Out 35 per 10,000 litres or 125 grams of Oxy-Clear Pool Shock per 10,000 litres every week. If the pool is residential, add this amount every 1 – 2 weeks and after heavy bather loads.

Add 10 mL of Back-Up II Algae Inhibitor weekly.

Once a month:

Perform a complete water analysis and balance according to ALEX recommendations.

As needed:

Brush and vacuum the pool, and empty skimmer and pump baskets.

Backwash the filter.

Refill the Brominator.

Chemically clean the filter with Filter Brite mid-season.
