How To Replace Mineral Reservoir

Step 1: Check the label on the box and the product to confirm if you have the proper POOL FROG Mineral Reservoir that fits into your POOL FROG Cycler. Remove the POOL FROG Mineral Reservoir from the box and read the information card provided. All the information you need to insert and replace the POOL FROG Mineral Reservoir is also contained in the instruction manual that came with your unit.

Step 2: Ensure you use only the recommended replacement POOL FROG Mineral Reservoir, POOL FROG Bac Pac, and FROG BAM. Avoid using similar products or chemical tablets in the POOL FROG Cycler. Mixing other products with Pool Frog products may result in a fire explosion and other hazards which the POOL FROG System warranty will not cover.

Step 3:Turn off the pump and ensure the Pool Frog Cycler control dial is set to "Pac Removal".

Step 4: Open POOL FROG Cycler Cap. Use the cap tool included with POOL FROG Cycler to loosen cycler cap by hitting the handle with the flat of your hand counter clockwise. 

Step 5: Remove the POOL FROG Bac Pac and if not empty, set to the side or store for winter. Then remove the POOL FROG Mineral Reservoir and discard if it has been used for one pool season or 6 months whichever is shorter.
