    Reagents for testing Borates?

    Split into its own topic. Please ask questions in your own topic, rather than reusing someone else's existing topic. JasonLion

    Well since this thread is titled Borates... Here's where I will ask... Does Taylor make reagents for testing Borates? I'm assuming the pool calculator will tell me how much Borax to put in, but testing for it is where I am concerned

    Pool: IG 22k- 16x32 clipped corners- vinyl liner, w/ a great board. Built in 3/99, new to me 2/2011.
    Equip: Hayward 3600 DE filter, Hayward CL-200 Chlorinator (empty since 7/5/2013).
    K-2006 Test kit with Speedstir

    No, Taylor doesn't currently make a Borate test.

    Show if I use the pool calculator to put 50 ppm borax into my pool, then how will I monitor the level? Or don't they go away except from backwashing or splashout and rain dilution?

    Oh sweetness! Thanks James! I wish this board had a LINKS sticky with this kind of stuff and best sources for parts and supplies, etc.
