Aquachek one minute phosphate test

Hach Company/ETS Business Unit, the maker of AquaChek®, the world's #1 pool and spa test strips, announces the new One Minute Phosphate Test. Like other AquaChek products, it is a fast, easy and accurate tool for pool and spa professionals and owners to monitor the presence of phosphate levels. Controlling phosphate levels helps to prevent algae outbreaks.

It takes just three easy steps to perform the One Minute Phosphate test: add powder pillow content to water sample, shake gently to mix, and compare to color chart. The AquaChek One Minute Phosphate Test is packaged with 20 phosphate powder pillow reagents and a testing vial in a convenient bottle. Directions are written in English and Spanish.

"Phosphate maintenance often requires regular dosage of phosphate remover to keep the phosphate levels down, due to the numerous sources contributing phosphates to the water," explained Joe Sweazy, Technical Sales and Services Manager for Hach Company/ETS Business Unit, manufacturer of AquaChek®. "We recommend checking the phosphate level once a week and more frequently if there are unique environmental or seasonal changes in the area; for example, heavy wind, rain, sand or fire storms, as well as during gardening, growing and plowing seasons," he added.

Phosphates can be introduced to the pool or spa water through fertilizer, human contaminants and the source water. Phosphates feed algae and are essential nutrients for algae growth and development. Unlike nitrates, phosphate can be treated and removed through recent advances in modern chemistry. Phosphate treatment may also be the key to controlling high nitrate nitrogen levels. Thus, keeping phosphate levels in check is critical to the health of the water.

AquaChek is the world's #1 brand of pool and spa test strips. Hach Company maintains international ISO 9001:2008 certification by following strict productions standards. The company also manufactures test strips used worldwide in the medical industry.
