The Original FrogLog


Regular price $21.99 Sale price $25.99

Unit price per 

The FrogLog is a unique, effective, and simple to use product that allows small animals to escape swimming pools. It was designed and extensively tested by a wildlife biologist from Maryland (USA). The FrogLog is made of an inflatable floating platform, mesh ramp, and fabric pouch that is filled with 1.5 cups of sand or pea gravel. The pouch sits on the pool deck and holds the FrogLog in place. Assembly takes 5 minutes. The customer provides 1.5 cups of sand or pea gravel or we offer a "Ready to Use" option that includes the sand/pea gravel.

    Well worth using.

    I have been using two of The Original Frog Log’s in my pool now for several years. I have an in ground pool in a rural area. There has been a noticeable decrease in in bugs, mice, rats etc getting trapped in the pool. They keep the pool cleaner which equals less maintenance. Will continue to be a customer.

    Hi Randy,

    Thanks much for the great review and your continued support. We are glad the FrogLog has reduced your maintenance and saved many animals.

    No more chipmunks

    Since I started using froglogs I haven’t had any more chipmunks swimming or more likely drowning in my pool!!!

    That is great news Jamie! Thanks.

    Frog's Gotta Love This!!!

    Really well made product. Very pleased with the materials and design. So far, no more critters. Keeping my fingers crossed that this continues. I ordered two of these for our pool and placed them to the side of each skimmer where the incoming water flow is strongest. Maybe I should move them in front of each skimmer? The skimmers are where I find most of the frogs and other beasties. Really excellent thinking behind this product. Thank you!

    Love these

    Love these- I see little critters being helped and saved by this often in our pool. My only complaint is that they do fade and wear out fairly quickly.

    Great added Feature

    Thank you Frog Log! All our "little critters" roaming the night for their meals, now are able to safely escape the dangers of our pool! We'll be sure to buy another one, when this one expires!

    Frogs no longer clog the filter

    Tbe frog log gives these green pool hoppers a chance to log out instead of croaking in the pool filter. Plus, then I don’t have to feel sad or dispose of them!

    Saved our chipmunks!

    We've been heartbroken to have some chipmunks drown in our pool and were excited to learn of this product. We ordered it even though we were a bit skeptical -- would something so simple, actually work?

    My husband was walking by the French doors to our deck when he saw a chipmunk swimming in our pool.

    He ran out and grabbed the skimmer to save it and watched as the little guy swam over to the Frog Log and used it to get out!! OMG. We were so happy!!!

    I've even seen birds use it to hop into the pool and eat the bugs that collect on the edges of the Frog Log.

    Super thrilled with this product! (We bought 3 of them -- one for the deep end and one for each side)
