Phosphates in the City water Supply

Post by johnnyblade » Wed Jun 19, 2013 11:44 am

Hello to all,new to this forum and first post ,I need some opinions here, I have figured out that there are a high concentration of Phosphates coming from the City supply. I bought a digital tester and measured it. Results are .140 ppm right off the bat. (should be under .050 ppm),Now there a few remedies that I can go with. Phosphate Reactor with the proper media, Chemi pure elite, an RO unit but this one might be a hassle and not really cost effective once you factor in all the media and minerals I would have to put back in the water to correct what is missing. Not sure if I’m missing anything but need opinions on how to remedy this problem.
