Hi all - I own a lawn service company in Central Pa (and I'm a pool owner). This year we've had many calls regarding " you got fertilizer in my pool and now my Phosphate level is off the chart"
They ALL come from one pool company that is - in my opinion - too lazy to dig into their customers problem and really HELP them. They just generically blame us and sell them $600 worth of stuff.
The funny thing is that the Fertilizer we use contains NO PHOSPHORUS! its a 24-0-11 or 30-0-10 analysis for example
Can you give me some education on this? What else could cause a spike in P levels?
My guys are VERY careful to keep products out of pools and even if a couple granules were to get in a pool it would be a parts per billion change.
I'm getting tired of fielding complaints because one guy uses a broad brush to paint with - I suspect they just want to sell more Chems to their customer
