Rock Hill, SC, 29730

Press release date: September 2, 2009

With Labor Day approaching it signals the end of the summer pool season and pool owners dealing with water problems due to high temperatures. Pools are also at a higher risk this time of year due to algae. Algae growth is a pool hazard in many ways. Algae are a slip and fall hazard and they harbor bacteria increasing the risk of illness.

To maintain an algae free swimming pool it is required to test for phosphate regularly. Although sunlight and humidity are important to support algae growth, it needs the nutrient phosphate to cultivate. Phosphate levels present in water will establish how much algae can be grown. The greater amount of phosphate, the greater the potential for algae growth and severity of outbreak. High phosphate levels produce resistant algae and interfere with the sanitizing property of chlorine.

Pool Check Phosphate (#481349) test strips by Industrial Test Systems, Inc, are a quick, easy, and reliable method for testing phosphates levels in pools. Pool Check Phosphate is sold in a bottle of 50 test strips with detection levels of 0, 200, 400, 600, 1000, 2500 ppb. Reliable results are available in only 30 seconds. Regular testing for phosphates will ensure a properly maintained pool and should be done at the beginning, middle and end of every pool season. As long as phosphate levels remain below 100 ug/L (PPB) or less the other pool chemicals can effectively work to keep the pool clear.
