Phosphate Remover binds to these impurities and makes them large enough to be filtered out of the pool, allowing your pool to operate more efficiently to maintain clear and inviting water. This item can be used in all pool types.

    Q:I have an in-ground plaster 16,500 gal pool with a Phosphate level of 1,675 ppb. How many 32oz bottles do I need and can I add them all at the same time?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi James. We are the manufacturer of PoolTime products. A pool that size should start off with 53 fl oz of the Phosphate Remover and then reassess the level about 72 hrs after applying. This dosage will remove about 1,000 ppb. Please give us a call at 800-252-7665 if you have any further questions. We are available Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm EST.

      Q:I have a 26,000 gal inground pool with phosphate levels of 530 PPM, How much should I use and can I apply all of it at one time?
      by|Aug 26, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi. We are the manufacturer of PoolTime products. A pool that size should still have 83 fl oz applied to it (a standard dosage) to remove as much phosphate as possible since removing phosphate at lower levels is more difficult. Please give us a call at 800-252-7665 if you have any further questions. We are available Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm EST.

        Q:Does this raise the pressure on your filter?
        by|Jun 13, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Mike, We are the manufacturer of Pool Time products. Our Phosphate Remover works by combining with the orthophospates that are present in your water and dropping them out of solution. The precipitate that forms is then collected by the filtration system, which can create an increase in pressure. It is always a good idea to clean your filters before using this product and monitoring your filter pressure afterwards. We typically recommend backwashing when your filter pressure rises 8 to 10 pounds above the normal running levels, unless your filter manufacturer has other recommendations for your pool filter. If you have any other questions, please give our Technical Solutions Team a call at 1-800-252-POOL (7665). Thank you.

          Yes it works
          I don't write a lot of reviews however I felt this product deserved to be heard having owned a pool for years I can not tell you the $$$ I have spent on chemicals, I just built still yet a new pool ( I never learn LOL ) I have well water and when I took my sample in they kept telling me the phosphates were getting higher must be from air pollution and wanted to sell me some 40.00 a bottle phosphate reducer. I always research the why and then the cost can I do this for less and still have quality in doing so I found that if the phosphates are high your pool will grow algae faster, you will use more chemicals and the list goes on so I thought let me try this. One bottle they were at 1000 went back and it had dropped to 300 for half the cost and it works. Side note I haven't had any Algae growth in a month, just try it, yes the water will get milky for a day or so, clean your filter after day one and it will be fine.

            The product did not reduce my phosphates instead of doing what it was supposed to do it doubled my phosphate count from 900 to 1945. Leslie's couldn't believe it and they made me go back and get a new sample in a new bottle. I had to buy a commercial grade phosphate remover from them for over 75.00 and used only 8 oz and it took it back down to under 945, I did it again using 4oz and now it is at 300 so one more time and I will have it where it should be using just 2oz. It would be nice if the company reimbursed me for having to pay so much to do what the Pool time product should have done in the first place, since I called and talked to a customer service rep named Shirley and her supervisor in regards to this issue. I let them know that it made it worse and all they said is that is was from the environment, which is untrue because I used the product from Leslie's and it worked right away and I only had to run my pump for 8 hours not 48 hours like the pool time product says. It would not be appropriate for me to rate this product and even give it 1 star since it made my phosphate count worse.

            Hi Ed, We are the manufacturer of Pool Time products. We are sorry to hear about your recent experience with our PoolTime Phosphate Remover. Normally, when this product is applied, the water clouds as phosphates are removed from the water. Phosphates are derived from phosphorous, the 11th most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust. It makes its way into pool water from a variety of sources, including fertilizers, industrial discharge, swimmer waste (sweat and urine), detergents and even tap water (which contains compounds used to treat corrosion). If you would like help troubleshooting your pool problem, please give us a call at 1-800-252-7665. PoolTime

            I disregarded the negative reviews
            I started writing reviews on everything I bought some years ago. I rely heavily on reviews, but realized that many if not most of the negative reviews I read were flawed because of something more to do with the reviewer than with the product. This is a fantastic product! My pool looked pretty bad...you could barely see the main drain, and it's only 5-1/2' deep! The chemicals I could test (chlorine, ph, acid demand and alkalinity) were well within balance, yet the water was still cloudy. I took a sample to the local pool supplier and learned that the phosphate level was over 300 ppb (parts per billion). Phosphates accumulate for many reasons. One reviewer discussed water from the Colorado River being higher in phospates to begin with...our water comes from the Colorado, also. Another reviewer said that their phosphate level dropped from 300 to less than 100 with one application of a 32 oz. bottle of Pool Time Phosphate Remover. Given this and other reviews I read, I figured one bottle should do for our 15,000 gallon pool. You should've seen what happened when I poured that bottle in! The water did turn quite milky as the instructions indicated, but then it got really ugly. My first thought was, oh no! But, within one hour the hot tub had turned crystal clear. The pool looked terrible. I went out the next morning and the spa was still crystaline and the pool was much improved. By the end of the day, the pool was better than we had ever seen it. This morning the pool and spa were exquisite! Following the instructions, I have left the pump on for nearly 48 hours straight. Throughout this process I checked my basic chemicals and they have remained in balance. I am keeping a bottle of this stuff on the shelf!

              Not very effective at removing phosphates

              Hi. We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to hear that your recent experience with our Phosphate Remover fell short of expectations. Phosphates are derived from phosphorous, the 11th most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust. They make their way into pool and spa water from a variety of sources, including fertilizers, organic material, dirt, swimmer waste (sweat and urine), detergents and even tap water (which contains compounds used to treat corrosion). Because phosphates are so abundant in the environment, they can build up quickly and make effective removal more difficult. If you would like to discuss further or if you have any other pool care related questions, please give us a call at 1-800-252-7665. PoolTime
