Re: [APD] Quickie phosphate source

You want the Fleet product called phospho soda that contains no oil. It's a solution of sodium phospahte. It's just more expensive than buying potassium phosphate from Gregwatson.

Just use Fleet Enema - the non-mineral oil type.  Check the  
ingredients to be sure it is the phosphate type.
