    I use phosban and find it helps, it's recommended to change it out every 6 mths but I'm doing it every 4! Or if you see a spike in algae growth which is always my first sign!
    I live in a mail-order town!!!

    The ferric-oxide based ones seem to work the best. I use Rowaphos and it works for me.
