    What test kit for metals?

    Is there a good, inexpensive metal test kit out there? The local pool store has closed, I usually would go pay $3 to get them to test it...

    Looked at the Taylor - it was about $70. Hate paying that for a kit that tests ONE thing. (well, 2 if you count Fe and Cu...)

    Re: What test kit for metals?

    I am not aware of any beyond the Taylor tests. Since they are so expensive and since there is not usually a need for continued tests for metals, I usually suggest just letting the pool store do the metal tests.
