FROG® Jump Start®

Single Dose Start-Up Shock for Hot Tubs

Average Rating: 4 12 Reviews

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).

    We have a 235 gal spa. Whenever I use jump start, my chlorine sky rockets and my once perfect ph goes down a lot. Every time. I believe from now on, I will be using 1/3 the packet. The full packet is just too much chlorine for a 235 gal spa.

    If I am using the Serene Inline Minerals and Bromine, an I still supposed to use the jump start that appear to be Chlorine based?

    Need help – I know we are supposed to shock it once a month. Which product do we use? The Jump Start appears to be only for when you fill it with fresh water.
