Stormwater Phos Filter to Prevent Algae Blooms
The Ultra-Phos Filter is an effective stormwater filtration media, proven to filter out an amount of phosphorus equal to one and half times the weight of the filter. This stormwater treatment has consistent phosphorus removal in both particle and dissolved form. Removing phosphorus from stormwater can help with the prevention of dangerous algae blooms.
Testing done at a local cattle ranch in South Florida shows that the phos filter removes over 90 percent of phosphorus that enters the system. The Ultra-Phos Filter is great for use in ponds, farms, catch basin drains, and urban runoff areas.

Why Remove Phosphorus from Stormwater?
Phosphorus is a chemical element contained in phosphate compounds, which are essential to plant growth. Phosphates are often used in fertilizers in gardens and on farms. However, too much phosphorus in waterways can trigger algae blooms. Enough algae on the surface of any water body blocks sunlight to plants and animals below. Algae can also cause oxygen depletion in the water, causing fish and other animals to die. Some algae blooms themselves are toxic to people, plants, and animals in the water and on land. Using the phos filter as a stormwater treatment keeps algae blooms from forming and damaging the local ecosystem.
