Phosguard is made by Seachem and is alumminum based (white), you don't want to use that one.

TLF's is Phosban and is granular ferric oxide (GFO). If you have fresh GFO use it. When the water coming out of the reactor is no longer 0 phosphate that is the time to change the media, regardless of the phosphate concentration in the tank or the time since last changing the media.

What test kit are you using?
Has it expired?

I use the Hanna handheld meter and wouldn't use anything else now. The color strips that you need to match to are too close for me to get a good reading. Having a digital readout works best for me.
