Making the transition from chlorine to bromine (or vice versa) for your pool? Follow the guide!

Do you want to make the transition from chlorine to bromine treatment (or vice versa) in your pool? It is possible but beware of the risks! This is a change you cannot make just like that. It includes risks for your pool and your health. Indeed, mixing these two products presents chemical risks, mainly due to the stabilizer present in stabilized chlorine (what is stabilized chlorine?).

How to switch from bromine to chlorine

If you want to switch from a bromine system to a chlorine system:

  1. Wait until the bromine level is minimal;
  2. Change your brominator to a chlorinator;
  3. Start your chlorine treatment with non-stabilized chlorine. Then, switch to stabilized chlorine when there is no bromine or stabilizer left in your water. Indeed, it is the presence of stabilizer that can cause dangerous chemical reactions with chlorine.

How to switch from chlorine to bromine

If you want to switch from a chlorine system to a bromine system:

  1. Empty your pool to ¾ minimum;
  2. Clean its filtration system;
  3. Make sure there is no more stabilizer in the water;
  4. Install a brominator.

And in the iopool application?

The good news is that EcO from iopool is compatible with bromine as well as chlorine and active oxygen.

You've made the switch? Have you changed the type of disinfection and gone through all the steps above? Remember to adapt the type of disinfection in the iopool app so that the treatment recommendations are adapted.

Please note that the bromine marketed by iopool is only available in France and the United States.
