I have been reading through several posts regarding phosphates and nitrates and most say to ignore; however, the IntelliChlor manual has this info:
So should I be concerned about these presence of these in my water or not? BTW, I haven't tested to see if they are present in our water; I am just trying to read through manuals/pool school/posts, etc before we actually fill our pool so that we can have a handle on it when we do.Nitrates and Phosphates can cause extremely high chlorine demands and will deplete chlorine from
your swimming pool. In some cases nitrates may even lower your chlorine levels to zero. Your local
pool professional can test for nitrates and phosphates. While a 0 ppm level of nitrates is the ideal, the
pool owner should make sure that nitrates DO NOT exceed 10 ppm. Phosphates should not exceed
125 parts per billion (ppb
Thanks for all the help.
