phosphates .5mg/liter

The test kit that I have measures mg/liter

How do I get this into ppm?

Yep, it's teh same value, just expressed in different ways. It happens to work out that there are 1 million mg in a liter...so 1mg/L is also 1 part per million.

Don't feel bad Creedog. I didn't know that either until I started hanging around here.

Thanks for the cheering up. I have got to tell you that I have learned more about plants and water quality in the last two weeks that I think I can handle. Right now I know more in theory than I do in practice.
