Up to 75%* less chlorine with no frustrating yo-yo chlorine levels
Unlike normal chlorine that is used up when you get in, SmartChlor continues to maintain the same level, which is up to 75%* less than hot tubs using dichlor (standard hot tub chlorine). That’s why we call it self-regulating. It goes to work when the hot tub needs sanitizing so there are no frustrating yo-yo chlorine levels. This time-released method is also why less shock is needed to maintain the hot tub.
In 2 seconds, you can know precisely whether your pH, Total Alkalinity and Hardness are balanced, plus whether or not SmartChlor® needs replacing. Simply dip the FROG @ease Test Strip into the water, remove with the pads facing up and shake once to remove the water on the FROG Test Strips. Then hold it up next to the color chart on the back of the bottle to compare colors.
If the SmartChlor color on the strip is darker than the bottle label, the water is fine. If it is lighter it’s time to replace the Smartchlor Cartridge.
Up to 75%* less chlorine with no frustrating yo-yo chlorine levels.
Only shock once a month!
Self-regulates for continuous crystal clear water.
Easy on hot tub surfaces with less odors.

FROG puts in the “ahhs…”
Set the FROG @ease SmartChlor Cartridge to the setting that matches your hot tub model number.
The dial is on the bottom of the silver SmartChlor cartridge, twist it up or down.
Once set, the SmartChlor Cartridge will maintain a low 0.5 to1.0 ppm chlorine level as long as the pH stays within 7.2 and 7.8.
When to adjust:
Because SmartChlor self-regulates at a low 0.5 to 1.0 ppm turning up the dial will only result in building up the reserve faster. Therefore, it is rare that you would need to increase the setting.
If you feel the SmartChlor cartridge is dispensing too quickly:
The most common chlorine used in hot tubs
A unique form of chlorine that works only with FROG minerals
|Dissolves quickly||Dissolves slowly even in hot water|
|Used up immediately as contaminants enter the water and has no reserve||Creates a reserve of chlorine that converts to free chlorine when contaminants enter the hot tub|
|Free chlorine level drops significantly under demand, more dichlor must be added to keep up with the demand – it’s a yo-yo effect||Self-regulates; it maintains a consistent 0.5 to 1.0 free chlorine level in the hot tub for the life the cartridge|
|Must maintain industry standards of 2 – 4 ppm||Reduces overall chlorine use up to 75%* by only needing 0.5 – 1 ppm|
|Contains up to 50% Cyanuric Acid, which leads to a quick build up resulting in itchy, cloudy water with shorter life. You must drain and refill more often.||Contains zero Cyanuric Acid – no build up possible; the water lasts longer|
|Strong odors occur when dichlor combines with contaminants in the water. Requires a shock treatment.||SmartChlor is self-shocking for the life of the cartridge. We recommend that you shock right before putting a new cartridge in which is about once a month. Therefore, when the SmartChlor level is declining as the old cartridge is used up you get rid of any contaminants with a shock and start, and then with a new cartridge. The result is no unpleasant odors at any time.|
The amount of time a SmartChlor Cartridge will last is based on 3 things:
What is the average life for a SmartChlor Cartridge?
How can I get the longest life possible from my SmartChlor Cartridge?
Bromine users: Drain, clean and refill the hot tub before using FROG @ease.
Dichlor users: Test your hot tub water to determine the Cyanuric Acid level:

FROG®’s goal was and is to make water care easier for hot tub owners. Because sanitizers contain hazardous chemicals, FROG set out to create products with no measuring, no guessing and no accidental spilling.
Prefilled cartridges make replacing chemicals easy and convenient for hot tub owners, with no need to store opened containers.
FROG products are regulated by the EPA and DOT. This means FROG must meet the required standards for shipping and storage.
Currently, FROG is actively investigating how to help mitigate the plastics issue while continuing to provide all the benefits, that include not ever needing to touch, measure or store opened containers of chemicals.
The blue Mineral Cartridge last for 4 months. After that, most people choose to drain and refill their hot tub. Therefore, we packaged the new mineral cartridge with everything you need to start up a freshly filled hot tub.
When you refill your hot tub, you’ll need to balance your hot tub water with FROG @ease Test Strips and adjust as they indicate. Then add FROG Jump-Start to shock the water and insert your new Mineral Cartridge with a SmartChlor Cartridge in your holder custom designed for Bullfrog Spas®.
The SmartChlor and Mineral Cartridges work together. The SmartChlor self-regulates with a low level of chlorine on demand. It needs to be replaced when depleted – the “Out Indicator” on the FROG @ease Test Strips indicates this.
The Mineral Cartridge lasts for 4 months, and then the minerals are spent (even if you feel or hear them inside.)
Our goal was to make hot tub water care easier, that’s why all the products are included in one System box. You can be assured that you’ll have what you need when you refill your hot tub.
In between, you can purchase the 3-pack of SmartChlor Cartridges.

Thank you to all who posted reviews. Our team investigated and discovered that a small percentage of Bullfrog Spas® SmartChlor® Cartridges were underfilled. We’ve worked hard to find and remove them, however, a small number were shipped and sold. We’re sorry. If you believe you may have received some of these cartridges, we want to hear from you. Please call us at 800-222-0169 or email us at email@example.com.
