High Phosphate Level

High Phosphate Level

Phosphate levels should be maintained around 100ppb or lower. If phosphates are higher than 100ppb Natural Chemistry has two products to lower phosphates to under 100ppb. They are PHOSfree and PHOSfree Commercial Strength. Once phosphates are 100ppb or lower, we highly suggest using Pool Perfect+PHOSfree on a weekly basis to maintain low levels. For opening and closing pools Natural Chemistry has a product that is designed for cooler temperatures, Pool Magic+PHOSfree. This product will remove up to 300ppb of phosphates. It also contains our patented enzymes that help reduce organics and waterline rings.

Important: While testing for phosphates there cannot be ANY live algae present. Live algae will hold phosphates "in" which will give an inaccurate reading. Chlorine must also be under 5ppm. If chlorine is above 5ppm it will strip the reagent on the test strips giving  inaccurate test results. 

PHOSfree is formulated from lanthanum (rare earth) compounds. When added to your skimmer, a thin coating of PHOSfree forms on the filter media. As pool water flows through the filter, phosphates are reduced to a very low level. All other phosphate products will cloud the pool water! Natural Chemistry's complete phosphate program results in clear perfect water, no waterline rings, no chemical odors and no phosphates.

PHOSfree Commercial Strength quickly reduces extremely high phosphate levels. It is the strongest phosphate remover available.

Pool Perfect+PHOSfree has the outstanding benefits of Pool Perfect enzymes combined with our industry leading phosphate removal technology. It is the only product that is added directly to the skimmer and does not cloud pool water. You will not find an easier, more reliable, trouble free maintenance program. 

Pool Magic+PHOSfree is ideal to treat your pool at the beginning and end of each season. You may also use it at anytime to remove phosphates as the first step of Natural Chemistry's Clear, Perfect Water Program. Pool Magic+PHOSfree is specifically formulated for cold water application. It speeds clean up, and readies the pool for trouble free maintenance. End of season application reduces off season scum line and staining of pool surfaces by organic contamination
