Phosphates in the swimming pool act as a food source for algae. If you have a reoccurring algae problem in your pool, you may need a phosphate remover to rid your pool of irritating algae. Heavy swimmer loads increase your chances for phosphates, especially during pool season.
With the help of Suncoast® Chemicals Phosphate Remover, your pool water and surfaces will be free of harmful phosphates caused by pool chemicals, fertilizers and other sources. This phosphate remover is 100% safe for your family and the environment.
Phosphate Remover Directions:
If Algae Are Present:
- Clean or backwash your pool filter
- Distribute the required amount of Suncoast Phosphate Remover across the surface of the pool. (See dosage chart below)
- Run your pool’s filter system continuously for at least 24 hours.
- If pool filter pressure increases 10 psi over normal, clean or backwash the pool filter.
- After 48 hours test the phosphate level with a phosphate test kit approved for swimming pool use. If needed, reapply Suncoast Phosphate Remover.
Note: It is normal for Suncoast Phosphate Remover to cause cloudiness in the pool water. Use Suncoast® Ultimate Water Clarifier to clear the pool water.
If Algae Are Not Present:
Use 2 fl. ounces of Suncoast Phosphate Remover per 10,000 gallons of pool water weekly to maintain phosphate levels below 125 ppm (parts per billion).
Dosage: The amount of Suncoast Phosphate Remover to be used is determined by the amount of phosphates in your pool water and by the capacity of your pool.
Example: For a 5,000 gallon pool with 250 ppm phosphates, use 2 fl. ounces of Suncoast Phosphate Remover.
