T-Phosphorus Water Test


Water can contain multiple types of phosphorus. Too much phosphorus can result in algae blooms and illness in humans and animals. This test detects the total quantity of phosphorus in a sample.

Is T-Phosphorus in My Water Harmful?
Too much phosphorus in water encourages the growth of algae, which can deplete oxygen in the water, resulting in the death of life forms that depend on that oxygen. Phosphorus is not harmful to people unless very high levels are reached at which point it can cause digestive distress. It can also interfere with the removal of microorganisms from water, which could then cause illness.

How Much Does a T-Phosphorus Water Test Cost?
T-Phosphorus refers to the total count of phosphorus of all types in a water sample. This test is available for $50.
