To achieve all the benefits of Fresh Mineral Water, you need to maintain a low chlorine level. This is easy to do with FROG because every product has a convenient and precise control dial. Finding your setting takes a few days of tweaking to experience a relaxing summer on cruise control. Here’s how to do it.
- Start your setting based on the chart below and make sure you have a Mineral Cartridge that is less than 6 months old and a chlorine cartridge that still contains chlorine.
- After 24 hours in the pool, test the water with FROG Test Strips to see if the chlorine level is in the ideal range of 0.5-1.0 ppm.
- If higher than 1.0, lower the dial by 1 setting. If lower than 0.5, raise the dial by one setting.
- Test again in 24 hours to see the change. If still not in the ideal range, adjust the dial again by 1 setting and test again in 24 hours.
Usually this process takes 2-4 days. If you are consistently under 0.5 ppm for 2 days, add a non-chlorine shock to the pool to ensure it does not go green while you are dialing in the right setting.
Once you find that setting, there is no need to touch it unless something changes that will affect the pool on a regular basis. For instance, in June your grandkids spent time in the pool 2 days a week but in July and August, they plan to be in the pool every day. That extra use on a consistent basis requires a greater dial setting.
However, if you are just having a one-day pool party for 20 people, you wouldn’t increase your dial setting. That’s the time to shock the pool – ideally with a non-chlorine shock before and after the party. Shocking after a heavy rain is always helpful also.
If you find you are getting too much chlorine in the pool even at the lowest setting or not enough chlorine at the highest setting, the dial is probably not the answer.
