Along with smartphones and smart TVs, FROG® has smart chlorine.
FROG @ease® uses SmartChlor® Technology, which is a completely different type of chlorine.
Why is it smart?
It knows what level of sanitizer is needed and delivers it automatically.
It’s different because SmartChlor does what no other chlorine can.
SmartChlor is prefilled in a silver cartridge. It maintains a consistently low free chlorine level for the life of the cartridge (about four weeks). SmartChlor keeps a chlorine reserve that automatically releases only when contaminants are present. This is unlike dichlor, which is used up when contaminants enter the hot tub so it is no longer effective and the water has to be shocked.
2. Reduces chlorine use up to 75%*
SmartChlor maintains a free chlorine level of 0.5 to 1.0 ppm. That’s 75%* less than the industry standard of 2.0 to 4.0 ppm. And it never waivers so you don’t have to worry about frustrating yo-yo chlorine levels. The free chlorine never changes, it is consistent.
FROG Minerals, which come in the blue cartridge, are EPA registered sanitizers that only need a low level of chlorine to finish the job – this is why FROG @ease reduces chlorine use up to 75%*. Minerals also condition the water so its softer. It’s this unique 1-2 punch of SmartChlor Technology and minerals that creates Fresh Mineral Water∞ that’s Cleaner, Clearer, Softer and Easier® to take care of.
3. Easy on Surfaces with no odors
FROG @ease In-Line System and FROG @ease Floating System.
SmartChlor maintains a low free chlorine level, so the water feels much softer than it does in a standard chlorine hot tub. Reduced chlorine makes water easier on skin and hot tub surfaces.
When dichlor is used and hot tub water is not regularly shocked, the water builds up a strong chlorine odor. Contrary to common opinion, a strong chlorine smell does not mean you have too much chlorine but the opposite – look for future articles where we’ll explain why! With SmartChlor’s self-shocking properties, odors are non-existent.
4. No Cyanuric Acid
Cyanuric Acid, CYA, is a chemical added to chlorine to prevent the sun from burning up the chlorine in a pool or hot tub – it acts as a sunscreen to protect the chlorine. For outdoor pools, it’s helpful. For hot tubs, which are usually covered unless in use, and rarely in direct sunlight, CYA is unnecessary. CYA is responsible for cloudy, irritating, smelly water that also shortens water life and causes the need to drain and refill the hot tub more often. In fact, the CDC recommends not using cyanuric acid or chlorine products with cyanuric acid in hot tubs/spas1. You never have to worry about that with FROG @ease because it has no cyanuric acid.
5. Shock Only Once a Month
Instead of shocking multiple times a month or after each hot tub use, with SmartChlor you need to shock only once a month. This is also due to the time-released nature of SmartChlor’s technology. It’s basically self-shocking each time it releases more free chlorine – that means you don’t have to use more shock.
6. Easy Out Indicator
FROG @ease Floating System flips over when action is needed.
Due to SmartChlor’s uniqueness, it has its own test strip with one color to match. That makes testing your hot tub water much easier than matching several different colors. The Test Strip has a “SmartChlor Out Indicator.” When the test strip shows it’s darker than the SmartChlor Out Indicator color, all is working well. When it’s lighter, the silver SmartChlor cartridge is nearly empty. Plus, the FROG @ease Floating System gives you another visual out indicator – it flips over!
FROG Products has launched a free app to further improve your FROG Water Care experience! Now you can test your water, troubleshoot issues and find your local dealer all in the same spot.
