The Pool Frog Leap Mineral system utilizes a patented combination of sanitizing minerals along with a LOW level of chlorine to destroy bacteria. All components are introduced into the water via a housing known as the Cycler that is installed after the pump and filter. The Anti-Bac Mineral Pac is inserted first and lasts all summer, while the chlorine Torpedo Pacs fit inside the Anti-Bac Mineral Pac and are dialed in to your pool’s exact needs. Less waste. Less work. Leaves your pool for nothing but fun!

Inserting the Frog Torpedo Pac

Cut your chlorine use! With minerals in the pool destroying bacteria, the chlorine level is reduced to 0.5ppm. Without minerals, pools run their chlorine between 1ppm and 3ppm, which results in a lot more chlorine use!

Setting the Control Dial

Pool Frog Mineral Systems help owners dial back on chlorine use. The control dial on the Pool Frog Cycler ensures that chlorine remains between 0.5 and 1.0ppm. In your Pool Frog Mineral System manual, there is a chart to assist you in finding the proper setting for your Pool Frog Cycler. After adjusting to the correct setting, wait 24 hours and test your pool with a Frog Test Strip. Adjust the setting again if necessary. Continue testing for about a week to verify that the chlorine in your swimming pool has stabilized between 0.5 and 1.0ppm.

Shocking Your Pool

Even though Pool Frog Mineral Systems utilize minerals to reduce the chlorine usage, there are still times when owners need to shock their swimming pools to revitalize chlorine. Frog advocates using a non-chlorinated shock so you won’t have to worry about the chlorine level rising, making the water unpleasant for swimmers. Remember to always sprinkle the shock bag’s contents evenly into the pool water. NEVER pour the shock directly into the skimmer or the Pool Frog Cycler, as the mixing of chemicals is dangerous and fire or explosion may occur.
