Chemicals

I would like to know the name of the compound KH2PO4 if anyone knows and wether it is safe to raise my phosphate levels with it.Also does it have any acid or basic effect on the water?

Thanks

KH2PO4 = Mono Potassium Phosphate or Potassium Phosphate Monobasic. It is perfect to for raising phosphates and will not adjust the pH unless you grossly overdose.

This should help with dosing.
