PhosphatR Aquarium Phosphate Remover - 5.9 oz. - 175 mL
Renewable sythetic polymer resin beads provide durability and excellent flow characteristics, and will not break up like ferric medias. Much more effective then activated alumina products, and can be renewed up to 4 times. PhospatR can be employed in passive, fluidized-bed, or canister filters and can also remove silicates.
Specifications Form SYNTHETIC POLYMER RESIN BEADS
Instructions Basic: Prior to first use, rinse resin under a stream of purified water. For initial application on aquarium, use 1 ml of Phosph�tR per 1 US-gallon of water in system and monitor phosphate concentration during usage. Subsequent application of resin may be at the rate of 2 ml per 1 US-gallon.
Advanced: Prior to first use, rinse resin under a stream of purified water. To a point, effectiveness of resin is directly related to the reaction time it has with aquarium water; the longer the reaction time, the more effectively it will remove phosphate and silicate. Once phosphate concentration (�[PO43-]�) has not changed for a period of 4 - 6 hours, remove and regenerate resin, then reapply if necessary. In all cases, the use of a mechanical pre-filter to remove particulate organic material from water prior to its interaction with this media will prolong effectiveness.
Fluidized-bed filtration (recommended): Follow instructions of filter manufacturer for optimal volume of media to use in reaction chamber; start at a low flow rate and adjust to keep media in a steady �boil� within lower 2/3 of chamber; flow rate should not be such that resin is ejected into aquarium.
Canister filtration: Load resin into filter cartridge as directed by filter manufacturer; leave resin in place until [PO43-] reaches desired level or remains unchanged, as directed above. Slowing the flow of water through the filter may be required to obtain maximum effectiveness of resin.
Passive filtration: Place resin loosely in a 150�m mesh filter bag and locate in an area of low-medium flow. Turning bag over once during usage will serve to shift the resin beads and increases effectivness of this method.
Regenerate Phosph�tR with Brightwell Aquatics Regener�tPHOR. Can be regenerated up to five times, dramatically increasing cost effectiveness.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
Note: Resin sold moist. Keep closed to prevent drying. Weight varies due to moisture content, therefore product is sold by volume rather than weight.
