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 7.8 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.

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?

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!

I recently purchased a bull frog spa and I have trouble reading the test strips. One time the test shows something say alkalinity is low and moments later I can retest and the alkalinity indicates high. I need to buy more test strips.

I have trouble reading the test strips as well. If i read them quickly after taking them out of the water, nothing tests. If i wait like the 15 seconds like other strips the colors come in and match something in the strip. I have yet to get the oh level up to an ideal range no matter hope much i add. Not sure my tubs water is balanced.

Although the idea is great, it can be frustrating to match up the colors. After a few uses of the hot tub my Alkalinity is constantly showing a blotchy result, like have one color and half another. Leaving me wondering if there is an error with the strip or the water itself. I can’t seem to find any help online to determine what to do. Definitely chasing a moving target.
