Phosphates are widely introduced into the environment from such sources as agricultural fertilizers, cleaning and laundering products, boiler water conditioners, and drinking water treatment aids.
At high levels, phosphates stimulate the growth of photosynthetic organisms which may contribute to eutrophication of lakes rivers and ponds. This makes it important to monitor and control phosphate discharges into the environment.
Phosphates can be classified as ortho, condensed or organically bound. This test kit will only determine ortho phosphate levels.
