Phosphate Remover for Pools During Summer

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:

  1. Clean or backwash your pool filter
  2. Distribute the required amount of Suncoast Phosphate Remover across the surface of the pool. (See dosage chart below)
  3. Run your pool’s filter system continuously for at least 24 hours.
  4. If pool filter pressure increases 10 psi over normal, clean or backwash the pool filter.
  5. 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.
