In the UK most water companies add ortho-phosphoric acid to mains water in order to suppress lead from leaching into the water from old lead pipes in our homes. Ortho-phosphoric acid breaks down into organo-phosphate and as such provides a primary food bank for algae and bacteria. Phosphates also enter water from a variety of other sources including garden fertilizers, clothes washing detergents and other pool chemicals. In the UK, it is not uncommon to find phosphate levels up to and around 2500 parts per billion in mains water when the recommended level for swimming pools is ZERO parts per billion. By removing phosphates algae bloom is stopped and bacterial infection is inhibited. Kill algae first before dosing because this product does not kill algae, it stops algae growth by removing primary nutrients (phosphates) from the water.
This product can be used with any sanitation system. Pool must be equipped with a water filter system, as after dosing to the surface skimmers the phosphates are removed by filtering and then washed to waste by filter backwashing/cleaning.
PLEASE NOTE that this product does not remove the need to dose a water sanitizer (chlorine, Bromine, PristineBlue Copper etc) which must continue to be used, however by removing phosphates the amount of sanitizer which is consumed by the pool will be substantially reduced.
This pack will remove 25 gms of Phosphate from pool water.

- By removing phosphates from my spa water I have substantially reduced the amount of sanitizer I used to have to dose. At first I was cautious and frequently checked for bugs using a bacteria screening test but it's been fine with nothing found. Wonderful!
