    ortho phosphate neutralizing

    Is there a Natural/Supermarket Supply/ BBB method for removing phosphates from pool water due to vegatation/plant matter breakdown.
    1 qt of Phosphate Remover can run as high as $32 qt ($23 account price)

    Yes there is. Ignore the phosphates. No cost, and in 99% of cases it has the exact same effect on the pool.

    Wish ignoring the phosphates were possible.
    I have 3 pools with heavy vegetation in 105 degree temp. Even keeping the chlorine at 30 ppm and supplementing with algaecide is not mitigating the algae.

    Post a full set of test results. If you have algae it's more than the phosphates causing it. There are members here that have read over 5000 and never had algae.

    You can stop SLAMing your pool when you pass the OCLT (You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & You have .5ppm CC's or less) & your water is clear.
