Ozone and mineral filter core?

If using ozone and chlorine, is a mineral filter core overkill? Iím looking for a replacement for bromine because of allergies. Iím considering a mineral and chlorine combination. I donít know if the mineral filter core is necessary because the spa already has ozone.

I have never heard anyone recommend using ozone only for sanitizing a spa. When using ozone it allows you to use much less sanitizer (chlorine, bromine...). If you are allergic to bromine and don't like the smell of chlorine you could try a silver ion cartridge like Nature2.

Nature2 is not compatable with bromine so if you are currently using bromine you will have to drain and refill your spa before giving it a try.

Ozone and mineral filters


Ozone and the mineral filter you refer to are both supplemental products you still need to maintain a sanitizer in the spa. The problem with a spa is that you have a hot water environment and bacteria and algae grow very rapidly. So it is wise to us use either chlorine or bromine to maintain a sanitary spa. If you had an allergic reaction to bromine, which is very rare, you can try chlorine, but keep in mind that chorine dissipates quickly at high temperatures so you will need to add a granular every day or use a stabilized chlorine tablet in a floater. If you are trying to get rid of chlorine and bromine completely there is a product called E-Z spa that is compatible with the ozone that you can use in the place of bromine or chlorine. You can find E-Z spa at www.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com.

If you switch from bromine to chorine it is recommended that you drain and refill. The mineral filter systems are compatible with both chlorine and bromine and no draining is necessary.
