This convenient and effective spa start-up hot tub shock comes in an easy to pour packet, with a unique effervescent feature so you know it’s working. Its bubbling action properly shocks your hot tub water and sets the initial chlorine level on freshly filled spas up to 500 gallons; and for SPA FROG® Mineral System users, it helps extend the life of your bromine cartridges. Simply open and pour the hot tub shock package into your spa when starting up a freshly filled hot tub (approximately every 4 months).

Learn how you can use less chlorine and bromine while still enjoying softer crystal clear water, with no faded swimsuits or smelly odors. SPA FROG Floating System | SPA FROG In-Line Hot Tub System

How It Works

FROG Jump Start provides a dichlor chlorine shock with a unique effervescence that is designed specifically for starting-up a freshly filled spa. It’s a one-dose-fits-all shock product that dissolves quickly. The bubbling action properly sets the initial chlorine level on spas up to 500 gallons and creates a start-up level of sanitizer that can be used to help find the right setting for the bromine cartridge (see manual for instructions).

    I had the same thing happen to me using the shock for our 350 gal hot tub, when I tested the water, the chlorine level was at 5. So I’m running the jets and leaving the cover off, but do I insert my cartridges now, even though the chlorine is high, or wait for the chlorine to come down? Thank you.

      Hi Kristi,

      Please wait 24 hours after adding Jump Start to re-test your water. You can insert the cartridges immediately after shocking. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

      Thank you.
