Eco-Max products are phosphate-free. It's one way we're helping maintain balance in the ecosystem.
Why is "phosphate-free" important? The accumulation of excess phosphates in rivers, lakes and other water bodies can have severe environmental impacts to aquatic animals and plants. When excess phosphates are present in aquatic ecosystems, the growth of algae is significantly accelerated. This growth dramatically decreases the availability of oxygen in the water and can block light from penetrating the surface. The end result is a dead zone where aquatic plants and animals cannot survive.
