How do you use it? The typoes of potions you pour in a tank to rid it of trates, trites, ammonia, or phos typically just bond with the offender. Once bound it typically will begin breaking that bond in 4 days releasing it back into the tank.
Maybe. It will depend upon the product. Can you link us? The thing about a phos media in a reactor is that it is designed to trap and hold phos for months on end before leaching occurs. When you throw out the media, you throw out the phos. If a chealting product is used and you have a good skimmer the skimmer might remove the bound phos since it will eb a larger "particle".
