Flippin' Frog and Flippin' Frog XL: Mineral Systems to Reduce Pool Chlorine Use
The Flippin’ Frog and Flippin’ Frog XL deliver minerals to your pool through use of a floating dispenser. Both minerals and chlorine are released at a constant rate and when the chlorine cartridge runs out, it flips over to let you know it is time to replenish.
Using the Flippin’ Frog in your pool is a no mess, no guess, and no stress situation. Cartridges come pre-filled and are very easy to switch out. Utilizing both silver chloride and traditional chlorine kills bacteria in two different ways but also allows chlorine use to be reduced by up to 50%. The floating device has different settings for different pool sizes allowing the minerals contained in the floater to last all summer while the chlorine typically lasts 3 to 4 weeks as you only need to keep its level at a low 0.5 ppm. The pH of the pool is also kept in range while the use of the silver increases the softness of the water for a more pleasant bathing experience.
The Flippin’ Frog works with pools that are 2,000 to 5,000 gallons which are usually 12’ to 18’ Rounds. Minerals last about 6 months and the chlorine cartridge lasts 3 to 4 weeks. The Flippin’ Frog XL works with pools that are 5,000 to 10,000 gallons which are usually 18’ to 21’ Rounds. Minerals also last about 6 months and the chlorine cartridge also lasts 3 to 4 weeks.
Certain minerals work to sanitize pool water specifically silver and copper. Silver has known antibacterial properties and has actually been used since ancient Roman times to clean water. Copper is also a known algaecide and is a widely used component of many popular algaecides on the market today. Using pool mineral systems to help keep your pool or spa clean using significantly less chlorine or bromine. This mostly eliminates that well known “pool smell” that comes from dealing with chloramines.
Using the Flippin’ Frog is very easy. Remove all packaging and assemble it by attaching the mineral cartridge to the chlorine cartridge and set its dial to match your pool size. Don’t forget to also balance other aspects of your pool water and shock it weekly as well. When the chlorine is out the Flippin’ Frog will flip over. Just replace the chlorine cartridge and get back to having fun with your family and friends.
