    Buying salt test strips

    Every place i have looked only sells them in a combo pack. Pack of salt strips and a pack of Chlorine/PH strips. Is this the case everywhere now, or can you still buy individual packs of the salt strips?

    I was hoping to find them in store to avoid the wait of shipping with online orders.

    They are certainly available separately, though your local stores may not choose to keep them in stock separately.

    I spent a lot of money on drag racing, good whiskey, and expensive cigars. The rest of my money I just wasted.

    My Leslies only had the combo pack. I did find the single pack at another seasonal pool store in my area. But they wanted 13.99 for just the salt strips. The combo pack was 16.99.

    Re: Buying salt test strips

    One of my local pool stores had them last year, but they expired like 2 weeks after we bought them. Hubby didn't think to check the expiration date. I don't think the sell a lot of them, so be sure they will last you the season.
