Quick & Easy Test Strips for FROG @ease with SmartChlor

11 Reviews Read Reviews | Write Review

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.

Additional Information

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.

This technology is so unique it has its own testing method that’s easier than standard test strips.

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 7.6 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.

These work for me! Thinking of switching to Frog@ease Bromine cartridges. Can I use these strips to measure bromine or is it for chlorine only?

FROG Products - January 2, 2022

Hi Justin, both systems work great, but for the bromine product you will need to use these test strips, Thank you

I think the test strips are a great product. But I would like to be able to order refill strips for my existing bottle. This would save on packaging. Just a thought!

These things are trash and never accurate. How incredibly frustrating I cannot enjoy my new tub because it’s always a guessing game if the strip is going to give us the correct reading.

What if the chlorine shows deep purple? Is that too much chlorine

FROG Products - May 6, 2024

Hi there! As long as the test strip is showing a color darker than the Out Indicator on the bottle, you are good to go. FROG @ease is self-regulating so there is no need to worry about too much or too little chlorine. Just make sure your SmartChlor Cartridge is full and not needing replacement and you're all set!

I have the same problem with test strips as many do on your site. When I pull the strip out and give it a shake, none of the colors come close, but after 10-15 seconds everything comes into focus, as the colors match the colors on the bottle. Also, how do I know how much of chemical to add to get desired levels?

FROG Products - April 13, 2024

Hi Doug, we are sorry to hear our test strips are giving you issues. We recommend you make sure your test strips are not expired. You can check this by referring to the date printed on your test strip bottle. As far as adding balancing chemicals, we recommend you follow the label instructions according to your hot tub's gallon size. Feel free to reach out to us at 800-222-0169 or with any additional questions or concerns!
