The 1,10-phenanthroline-chelated Zn atom in the polymeric title compound, {[Zn(C7H4O6S)(C12H8N2)(H2O)2]·1.5H2O}n, is connected to the sulfonate O atom of one 4-hy­droxy-3-sulfonato­benzoate dianion and to the carboxyl­ate O atom of another dianion. It is also coordinated by two water mol­ecules in an overall octa­hedral environment. The dianion links adjacent metal atoms into a chain running along [110]. The chains are linked by O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network.
