FROG® Jump Start®

Single Dose Start-Up Shock for Hot Tubs

14 Reviews Read Reviews | Write Review

Our start-up hot tub shock comes in a single, easy-to-pour packet. No more measuring out capfuls per your gallon size. Once in the water, FROG Jump Start quickly dissolves before it hits the bottom of the hot tub so it won’t bleach surfaces.  You can see the bubbles as it goes to work providing an initial chlorine level for your freshly filled hot tub. Using FROG Jump Start® takes the load off your FROG @ease® SmartChlor® Cartridge or FROG Serene® Bromine Cartridge so they last a bit longer.

Additional Information

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).

What makes FROG Jump Start different than other shock treatments?

It is a convenient, one-dose packet that will start-up any hot tub up to 600 gallons. No measuring needed – just cut and pour.  The effervescence helps the dichlor dissolve faster so there’s no concern about bleaching surfaces.

When do I use FROG Jump Start?

It is meant for starting up a freshly filled spa but you can also use it for occasional shocking.

How do I purchase FROG Jump Start?

One FROG Jump Start packet comes in every FROG @ease and FROG Serene System and is sold separately in most FROG dealerships.

Is FROG Jump Start compatible with other chemicals?

As a dichlor product it is compatible with all other hot tub chemicals except biguanide.

As Kari Marzen - November 8, 2020 stated. I think the startup packet is way too much chlorine. This is supposed to be easy. I may use 1/3 of the packet next time as well. My spa is 400 gallons and it is way too high in chlorine levels. Been running for over 24 hours now and still to high. Unless I’m doing something wrong, be careful adding the whole packet. I may have to drain some water and fill with some fresh water.

FROG Products - October 23, 2022

Hi Brian, we're very sorry that using FROG Jump Start to startup your spa has been challenging. To help dissipate those high chlorine levels quickly, you can keep the cover off your spa, run the jets, or drain some of the water and refill with fresh water, as you've mentioned. If you'd like some more help with lowering chlorine levels on startup, please reach out to our customer service team who would love to help at 800-222-0169.

Is this compatible with Frog Serene bromine? It says that it establishes baseline chlorine

FROG Products - April 6, 2022

Hi Eli, thanks for reaching out! FROG® Jump Start® is compatible with the FROG Serene® Bromine Cartridge. FROG Jump Start creates a start-up level of sanitizer in your hot tub that can help you find the right setting for your bromine cartridge.

Vicky Dean - April 9, 2021

If we use the jump start do we still need to shock every week as our owner's manual suggest? Or if you use the frog system is shocking only necessary when you fill every four months?

Tom Sager - April 9, 2021

Hi Vicky - We still recommend shocking once a week. Jump Start provides the initial chlorine level, so always use that when you re-fill your tub. FROG just launched a new product called FROG Maintain, that you can use as your once-a-week shock. Ask your local dealer if they carry it! Tom
