Designed to remove phosphates from hot tub water
Comes in 750ml bottle
Hot Tub Phos Cleanse
Effectively remove phosphates;
Any time phosphate levels exceed:
Use phosphate test strips to determine level of phosphate
Where phosphate is an on-going issue, use as a weekly maintenance product
o 1 capful per 350 litres
Removes a problem-causing inorganic compound from pool water – ‘phosphate’
If phosphate level is <300 ppb
When phosphate level is 400 – 500 ppb
When phosphate level is >600 ppb
Limit applications to no more than 1 Litre.
Reduce phosphate in stages so as not to increase filter pressure beyond acceptable levels
Ensure the pump and filter are operating
o Clean filter prior to adding if dirty
Shake well. Pour required amount slowly into skimmer or in front of suction port – don’t rinse or clean cartridge for min. 48 hrs to allow product to work.
Water may cloud but will clear.
Filter continuously until clear. Run pump and filter for a minimum of 4-6 hours per day while Phos Cleanse is in the filter. After 48 hours rinse cartridge with water. Do not use a pressure washer.
Phosphates in Hot Tubs
Phosphates are the naturally occurring form of the element phosphorous, found in many phosphate minerals. In ecological terms, phosphate is a very important resource as its availability can govern the rate of growth of organisms (especially in fresh water systems). In other words, phosphate is often the determining factor in whether microorganisms like algae and bacteria
grow. This important characteristic makes them undesirable in hot tub water as they can ‘fuel’ a microbial infestation (biofilm). In addition, the presence of phosphates can
create a significant demand for sanitizers like bromine and chlorine as oxidizers like these will attempt to break phosphates down. Phosphates will also combine with calcium ions in the water as it heats to form a calcium phosphate complex, leading to scale formation and dull water. In salt-water hot tubs, phosphate can coat the electrodes of the device, preventing the efficient production of chlorine or bromine or cause scale to form on the electrode. Phosphates provide no useful benefit but can make successful water management problematic and costly.
Avoid the use of products which contain phosphates or are phosphate-based (i.e. certain stain and scale control products contain Phosphonic Acid, which reverts to orthophosphate after oxidation).
Should your fill water contain a phosphate residual, you can treat periodically with Dazzle™ Phos Cleanse
