    Poly filter won't really do a lot for the phosphate levels- not like rowa- it will remove any metals that may be in the water as well as ammonia -if there is any-.
    i don't know the configuration of your set up, but you could easily put the rowa in a cannister filter, or in the sump in an area with good flow or even point a powerhead at it in the sump- it will still help, not as efficiently as in the reactor or a cannister, but the good thing about the stuff is that it doesn't re-release po4 once it is axhausted so you can leave it in for several months until you are sure it is finished.
