With a technology as unique as FROG @ease, it only makes sense it would have a unique test strip. FROG @ease test strips let you know when your SmartChlor® Cartridge is empty. There is no need to measure the level of chlorine because it self regulates at the same level every time. Instead the single color on the bottle tells you your cartridge life is fine or you need to replace it.
What if I use regular test strips with my FROG product?
Regular test strips will be confusing because they will read a low free chlorine level and a high total chlorine level which normally means it’s time to shock. With FROG @ease, it means the product is self-regulating perfectly to meet the sanitizing needs of your hot tub and no action is required.
How does water balance affect FROG @ease?
It is very important that you check the Total Alkalinity and pH of the hot tub at least once a week to make sure it is staying in the correct range of 80-20 for TA and 7.2 to 7.8 for pH. SmartChlor effectiveness will drop if the water is not balanced.
How are FROG Test Strips different from FROG @ease Test Strips?
With SmartChlor Technology self-regulating the chlorine level, you don’t have to monitor it. So FROG @ease Test Strips have a simple out indicator to show when the SmartChlor Cartridge is empty. FROG Test Strips are for anyone using a FROG product with standard chlorine or bromine. It helps monitor those levels in the ideal range when using FROG minerals, so you get the most from Fresh Mineral Water.
