In the Swim is a well respected online pool supply retailer that is known for providing high-quality pool chlorine and bromine at fair prices. Pool chlorine is important for sanitizing your pool and ensuring that no organic compounds can build up and contaminate your pool water.
Typically speaking, swimming pool chlorine dissolves in your pool water and attaches to bacteria and other organic contaminants and kills them. Because chlorine that has killed the bacteria becomes inactive, it is important to regularly check chlorine levels in your pool. A healthy chlorine level in your pool ensures that your pool is clean, safe, and healthy for swimmers.
There are various types of pool chlorine on the market.
Depending on your pool maintenance system, your preference, and your swimming habits, different kinds of chlorine are better than others so you need to decide what is best for your pool.

- 3 Inch Chlorine Tablets

Pool bromine is similar to swimming pool chlorine as it is useful for killing bacteria and other dangerous organic compounds, but it’s mode of action is actually quite different. Generally speaking, bromine is more stable than pool chlorine and is often used for hot tub or spa maintenance.
In addition, swimming pool bromine is often favored over pool chlorine tablets, or other forms of pool chlorine, because it is less harsh on the skin. Individuals with sensitive skin or eyes may prefer pool bromine. Moreover, the chemical smell produced by pool bromine is less harsh.
Pool bromine also attaches to bacteria or other contaminants but doesn’t actually kill them; rather pool bromine neutralizes contaminants but does not become inactive. During your weekly shock treatment, the bacteria and organics are burned off and the bromine remains.
Many pool owners point out a number of advantages of swimming pool bromine. It is less harsh, more stable, but also more expensive. Also, pool bromine is chlorine-based so it is not an acceptable alternative for individuals with chlorine allergies.
