    Hi Daniel & congratulations on beginning ZEOvit. Zeovit will lower your P04's & clear-up your algae problem. Be sure to read & understand the ZEOvit guide. For now, do not dose any iron. For your system, I recommend the following:

    1)dose 1 Cup carbon in a filter sock, in your sump, passively. Knead this sock 3 x's/wk. Change carbon monthly.
    2)dose 1 ltr. zeolites in a filter with the flow rate of 100gph. Cycle the stones on & off at 3 hr. intervals, being careful the stones are always submerged. Pump clean these zeolites 1-2 x's/day[when "on"] & exchange every 6wks.
    3)dose 4 drops Bak/Food7 daily for 2wks. then 4 drops each 2x's/wk. Turn off your skimmer after dosing these. Dose Bak/Food/Start2 near the filter pump when the filter is "on".
    4)dose .1ml Start2 2x's/day. It is not necessary to turn off the skimmer when just dosing Start2.
    5)AAHC & C-V maybe dosed in Phase 1 if you wish. The other zeo-supplements maybe used when in Phase 2. Bob
