What it is:
Sodium Bromide is a pool treating product (products such as Yellow Out, Yellow Treat, Yellow Stuff, Mustard Free, Defense or Drive Out) originally marketed as a solution to green algae blooms.
Sodium Bromide treatments should be done cautiously, and definitely NOT in
biguanide (SoftSwim or Baquacil) treated swimming pools.
bromide (as little as 0.5 ppm) to pools treated with chlorine can and do cause high chlorine demands and
cause the chlorine to become unstable, increasing chlorine consumption.
Since sodium bromide cannot be
removed from the water, you effectively transform the pool to a "bromine"
treated pool. Unfortunately, many consumers may not be aware
of the increased chlorine demand and may not check chlorine
levels as often as necessary. This could result in a drop in the chlorine level
leading to subsequent Algae blooms.
