How does the FROG® @ease® with SmartChlor® Technology In-Line System work?
The FROG @ease In-Line System is a water sanitizer that combines FROG minerals and the breakthrough innovation – SmartChlor® Technology. The result is Fresh Mineral Water™ that’s cleaner, clearer and softer than standard hot tub treatments, requiring less chlorine use and easy maintenance. The system is available for use on Hot Spot® spas.
The system self-regulates based on the sanitation needs, so maintenance is easy! Simply set the dial on the pre-filled chlorine and mineral cartridges and insert them into the holder accessible from the bartop. The @ease SmartChlor cartridge slowly release chlorine and minerals to sanitize the water. The release of chlorine and minerals is automatic and there is no need for daily or weekly maintenance, giving you peace of mind. SmartChlor cartridges last up to four weeks and mineral cartridges last up to four months. Shocking is reduced to once a month.
How does it minimize shocking to just once a month?
Because of the unique technology that automatically converts the reserve (which we’ll consider “total chlorine”) into free chlorine, the formation of chloramines is drastically reduced so there is no need to shock when the total and free readings are different. It’s almost like it’s self-shocking during this conversion process. Therefore, we recommend shocking only when replacing a SmartChlor Cartridge – about every 4 weeks.
What is SmartChlor® Technology?
It is a time-released chlorine that knows when there is a demand on the hot tub, so it automatically delivers the sanitizing power to meet that demand. That’s why it’s smart. It also maintains a consistent free chlorine level of only 0.5-1.0 ppm for softer water, less odors and no bleaching suits or surfaces.
How are the odors reduced?
It starts with maintaining a lower free chlorine residual than standard dichlor sanitizers (0.5 – 1.0 ppm compared with 2-4ppm). The unique properties of SmartChlor and Minerals reduce the formation of chloramines which are the odor causing agents that require shocking to remove.
