Where do phosphates come from?

Phosphates are organic building blocks that form when phosphoric acid reacts with various elements found in nature. Phosphates come from leaves, fertilizers, and bather wastes such

as sweat and urine. Other phosphates sources are detergents, some insecticides, soft drinks, toothpaste and even some pool chemicals.

How much phosphate is too much?

As little as 0.2 ppm of phosphate can result in outbreaks. Interestingly, in cases where pools have excessive outbreaks, the test may register a very low or zero reading on the Phosphate
Test Kits. This is because virtually all of the phosphate has been consumed. This phosphate is now organically bound and is not measured by the test. When outbreaks are treated (super
chlorination and / or the addition of a Lo-Chlor Algaecide), this organically bound phosphate will be released into the water.


  • Add STARVER at a rate of 500ml per 50,000 Litres of pool water every 2-3 days.
  • (If Phosphate level is 1ppm or higher, it is recommended to use companion product STARVER X to reduce levels to beneath1ppm then to recommence using STARVER)
  • The required dosage of STARVER should be added until you finish the container you have been supplied.
  • Once you have completed the treatment, take a water sample to be tested for phosphates by your local pool professional.


  • Once you have achieved the desired phosphate level (0-0.2 ppm) , a regular maintenance dose of STARVER shouldbe applied.
  • Add a regular maintenance dose of 500ml of STARVER per 50,000 Litres pool water every 2 weeks.
  • REGULAR PHOSPHATE CHECKS should be carried out by your local pool professional.
