    Acceptable Phosphate Level

    Split from another thread by JohnT

    Hi Everyone,

    Does anyone have acceptable level for phosphates?

    Welcome to TFP.

    In most cases, phosphate level is not important. In severe cases, it can make a pool more likely to have algae problems, but most algae problems are a result of inadequate chlorination, not high phosphates. Phosphate testing is mostly a money maker for pool stores.

    Phosphate levels from zero to infinity are acceptable!
