- Because SmartChlor maintains a consistent 0.5 to 1.0 ppm free chlorine level (as long as the water is balanced) there is no need to regularly test for it.
- It is easier to determine whether the strip color is lighter or darker than match the color exactly as standard strips do.
- The clearly marked ideal ranges for water balance make it easier to get your Total Alkalinity, pH and Hardness in line.
How It Works
In 2 seconds, you can know precisely whether your pH, Total Alkalinity and Calcium Hardness are balanced, plus whether 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 put it up to the color chart on the bottle and compare.
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.

- Manuals & Docs
FROG @ease Test Strips are meant to be an out indicator for SmartChlor so it only has one color block to match to. That's much easier than standard strips. For pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness there are clear indicators of the ideal range to maintain shown with green brackets.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use FROG @ease Test Strips?
The SmartChlor cartridge forms a chlorine reserve that will be inaccurately measured as total chlorine on other test strips. Unlike conventional chlorine, the SmartChlor reserve automatically shifts to free chlorine as needed.
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.
