Genesis Bromine Generating System, 120V/240V
The Genesis Device Automatic Bromine Generator is the smartest, easiest and most cost effective way to keep your spa sparkling and always inviting.
Hot tubs and spas maintained by the Genesis Device are virtually maintenance free and greatly reduce cost and aggravation by eliminating the purchasing, storing and handling of Bromine tablets. This technology, while taking years to develop, is easy to understand, simple to use and amazingly effective.
Automating your tub is easy:
- First, you add Tru Blu – Sodium Bromide to your tub or spa water. You only have to do this once, during the initial start-up process.
- Sodium Bromide – “NaBr” is the kissing cousin of Sodium Chloride “NaCl” (table salt)
- The dissolved Sodium Bromide then circulates through your spa and makes contact with the Genesis Device. The Genesis then electronically converts Sodium Bromide into Bromine.
- Bromine is the recommended sanitizer for hot tubs and spas
- The Bromine sanitizes the spa’s water then reverts back to Sodium Bromide, completing the perpetual cycle.
The Genesis Device means that the days of buying tablets and filling those unsightly floating feeders are gone forever! No more hassle…just sparkling clean water!
Additional Sodium Bromide is only added when your water level declines due to splash out, or when you drain and refill the tub.
The Genesis Device can go up to 12 months before a drain and fill is required, unlike non equipped spas that require it every 3 months. Traditional methods of sanitizing, such as Bromine pucks, have unnecessary glues, binders, and bi-products that build up in your water. The Genesis only uses 98% pure Sodium Bromide, a natural salt, which does not cause build up in your spa water.
Synthetic graphite is utilized in our revolutionary Electrode cell, providing a surface area far greater than available with metal electrodes. The Genesis Electrode is made up of 2 of these unique and powerful plates. The Electrode cell is installed in a clear PVC chamber and is then connected to the DC-out wires of the Genesis controller.
Less than 30 watts total of DC power is then digitally pulsed across the Electrode cell electronically turning Sodium Bromide into Bromine.
Start Up Instructions - Owners Manual
It is important that you read and understand the start-up instructions prior to proceeding with action. It is important that you follow the hot tub manufacturer’s instructions on start-up preparations and initial set-up of the hot tub itself. Then you can proceed to the step-by-step Genesis Device instructions below:
Before filling your spa - test your water source for “TDS”
DO NOT FILL SPA WITH WATER FROM A SALT WATER SOFTENER
|Step 2.||Fill your hot tub or spa with water - up to the level recommended by the manufacturer|
Balance the water to the recommended water chemistry levels:
*For additional information on balancing your water chemistry refer the Water Chemistry tab on the Genesis home page, consult your owner’s manual or download a copy provided here*
|Step 4.||After your water is balanced properly, turn your jets on high speed and add the appropriate amount of Tru-Blu per your tub size. Allow the jets to run for 15 minutes on high speed to dissolve the Tru-Blu prior to proceeding to the next step.|
Turn the decrease / increase dial clockwise until the LED displays 10. If using a two-speed pump system, set the daily circulation time to a minimum of 8 hours per day.
Keep the dial set at 10 and let your tub circulate for 24 hours - then test the Bromine level. You should have established a Bromine bank of between 3-5 ppm. Do not use your spa during this time.
NOTE – The Genesis will only produce Bromine when the tub is circulating. The lights or power on the Genesis controller will only appear during these times. If using a 24 hour circulation pump, the unit will produce bromine 24 hours a day.
NOTE - The controller will have a “+” or “-” sign to the left of the power setting (1-10) and will reverse every 4-6 minutes. This is normal and indicates that the Electrode cell is reversing polarity during its self-cleansing process.
|Step 6.||Turn your Genesis dial down to an appropriate setting based on how often you use your spa. A spa with a higher-than-average bather load will require a higher setting. This simply means that the Genesis needs to produce more Bromine to maintain a level between 3 and 5 ppm. The average power setting for the Genesis Device is between 6-8.|
