Can I use salt instead of chemicals to keep my spa2go clean and sanitized?

Salt is not recommended in Portable Spas as it can be extremely corrosive to metal parts inside of the Power Pack, as well as drying out the vinyl parts, covers, etc, which can cause them to fail very quickly. The recommended sanitizer is Bromine. Make sure you are using quality chemicals if you are having problems balancing your water.

The manufacturer recommended chemicals are available from Oceantis, the only authorized service provider for all of Comfortline Products spas in North America. They can be contacted at (855) 772-6269

What is Bromine Used For?

Flame retardant Brominated flame retardants represent a commodity of growing importance, and represent the largest use of bromine. When the brominated material burns, the flame retardant produces hydrobromic acid which interferes in the radical chain reaction of the oxidation reaction of the fire. The mechanism is that the highly reactive hydrogen oxygen and hydroxy radicals react with hydrobromic acid and form less reactive bromine radicals (free bromine atoms). These also react with radicals in the first to help terminate the reaction.[31][32]
The bromine-containing compounds can be placed in the polymers either during polymerization if a small amount of brominated monomer is added or the bromine containing compound is added after polymerization. Tetrabromobisphenol A can be added to produce polyesters or epoxy resins. Epoxy used in printed circuit boards (PCB) are normally made from flame retardant resins, indicated by the FR in the abbreviation of the products (FR-4 and FR-2. Vinyl bromide can be used in the production of polyethylene, polyvinylchloride or polypropylene. Decabromodiphenyl ether can be added to the final polymers.[33]
Gasoline additive Ethylene bromide was an additive in gasolines containing lead anti-engine knocking agents. It scavenges lead by forming volatile lead bromide, which is exhausted from the engine. This application accounted for 77% of the bromine uses in 1966 in the US. This application has declined since the 1970s due to environmental regulations.[34] Ethylene bromide is also used as a fumigant, but again this application is declining.[28] These volatile organobromine compounds are all now regulated as ozone depletion agents (see below).
Pesticide Poisonous methyl bromide was widely used as pesticide to fumigate soil and to fumagate housing, by the tenting method. The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone scheduled the phase out for the ozone depleting chemical by 2005, and it is no longer used (in housing fumagation it has been replaced by such compounds as sulfuryl fluoride, which contain neither the chlorine or bromine organics which harm ozone). Prior to the Montreal protocol in 1991 (for example) an estimated 35,000 metric tons of the chemical were used to control nematodes, fungi, weeds and other soil-borne diseases.[35][36]
Medical and veterinary Bromide compounds, especially potassium bromide, were frequently used as general sedatives in the 19th and early 20th century. Bromides in the form of simple salts are still used as anticonvulsants, in both veterinary and human medicine.

My saltwater system produces chlorine but disappears fast

first of all your problem is a few things combined.
First lets learn what consumes chlorine
Heat,sun,rain,sun tan oil 3 of swimmers

you may need to run your generator 12 hours some nights it all depends on what kind of day it was and what the chlorine was to start with

Also if you do not have your salt as close to 3000ppm as you can then you are also not generating enough chlorine even if you are not triggering an alarm for low salt

you can not be below 2800 and no higher than 3800ppm
a test kit is available get the strips that reads #'s not the color strips for salt reading

Also you should be using a chlorine stabilizer to help hold the chlorine level this is only a help situation. it will not completly remidy your chlorine level going low if all the elements I mentioned are happening at the same time

Also be carefull not using the pool that is the worst thing you can do. You may go green quick without people in it stiring it up

I also recommend you use a non foaming algaecide every 5-7 days just follow directions for your gallons of water

By the way bromine tests are really not for pools they are designed to work with the hot water and chlorine level of a hot tub
your ph is fine, about in the middle alkalinity is what drives your ph so worry about the ph level and chlorine and you are good to go

Spa used once now wont heat up again

There is something wrong with your water balance and/or your sanitising chemical level.

Dump the water. Get the help of your pool supply place to help you balance the water. pH should be 7.4, Total Alkalinity should be in the range required by your sanitiser (80 to 100 or 100 to 120) and chlorine or bromine should be around 10 ppm CL or 20 ppm BR.
