    Borax testing

    I boraxed the pool, love the result. We get more rain here annually than Seattle...so after draining my pool down several times, how do I test for borax? The TF 100 nor any other kits I've seen will do that.

    Thanks, y'all. TFP is GREAT!!!

    Borate test strips. A quick google shows AquaCheck and InstaTest brands.

    The LaMotte InstaTest borate test strips are the best choice. They are much easier to read than the others. TFTestKits.Net caries them, as do many Internet sites.
