Phosphorus/Phosphate Question...

A person who lives in a place where they charge large amounts for individuals to import to has asked me a question. They say that they can get Brightwell products
because they are already imported by a company there.
So in dealing with GSA we are told to increase the Phosphate level.
If they use
Brightwell Florin Phosphorus, will this do that same thing ?
Also they asked if "Florin multi" would be better or not.

It seems that KH2PO4 would either be very expensive or just not available where they live. But I'm not able to know if the Brightwell Florin Phosphorus
will supply the correct nutrient.

Yes it will. Just make sure to follow the dosing instructions and remember that we often target PO4 (phosphate), so bear this in mind when following the dosing instructions.

Brightwell Aquatics - Florin-P
One ml of Florin-P added to 1 US-gallon of water will increase the total phosphorus concentration by ~0.40 ppm, which equates to an increase of ~1.23 ppm as phosphate.
Phosphorus is just the P in PO4.

Florin multi doesn't contain P. It looks like a trace element mix.
