PhosBond™ is a revolutionary new product that combines the
phosphate removing capabilities of both aluminum oxide and granular
ferric oxide into a singular material forming a synergistic effect. It
rapidly removes phosphates and silicates from saltwater and freshwater,
combining the best of both types of phosphate removers. Its high
porosity and surface area give it a large binding capacity, while its
physical strength and integrity assures that it will not break down from
For best results, PhosBond™ should be rinsed before use and
placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it but not so that
it tumbles against itself in flow. It may be used in a canister filter,
media chamber, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter.
Use of a filter bag such as The Bag is recommended.
Use 60 mL (1/4 cup) for every 200 L (50 US gallons)
saltwater or 400 L (100 US gallons) freshwater. Leave product in place
for 4 days, then test phosphate or silicate concentrations with either Phosphate or silicate test .
If the concentration of the component you are trying to decrease has
not dropped to around 0.02 mg/L, then replace the PhosBond™, otherwise
leave in place until levels begin to climb again. As long as
concentrations remain under control, the product is not exhausted. Over
treating is not recommended. PhosBond™ is not an exchange resin and does
not release anything into the water. It does not leach phosphate or
silicate back into the water and may be removed, dried, and returned to
service until exhausted. Continuous use of small quantities is better
than intermittent use of larger quantities.
This is for the 500g bottle, others sizes are available either in store or by request.
