    Copper & Metal Testing

    Do the pool stores have the ability to test for metals in the water? Copper in particular.

    Any Leslie's around here can.

    Testing for metals is one test that we recommend going to a pool store for. This is because basically, all you need is a "yes" or "no" answer and also, because purchasing a metals test kit is very expensive for the small amount of use you will need it for.
