Using RowaPhos question

I have this query in advanced reefing section too. Just placing it here to generate more responses.

Any idea if one can run RowaPhos 24/7 and if there is any harm in that? My PO been running at 0 for the longest time and I run RowaPhos round the clock. Not sure if that is the reason my SPS been looking dull despite decent growth. LPS, shrooms do look great. Not sure how one should use RowaPhos?

I have a 100G tank and use a Next Reef Shorty reactor with RowaPhos filled 1/2 way up.

I would use 1/2 the amount you use now & see if it still keeps readings the same.
I run mine all the time but use another brand.

I don't personally like 0 PO4. I'd back off the gfo if the corals look pale. Corals need some phosphate . FWIW , I keep PO4 around 0.02 to 0.04 ppm;some go higher.

So how do you use RowaPhos yet keep PO at 0.02?
