    Copper Test Question

    Can anyone recommend a good reliable copper test kit?

    Our pool has generally stayed balanced since I started using this forum. But my daughter's hair tends to turn green. We have a copper roof near the pool and copper gutters and downspouts. My pool is covered unless we are in it but I'm suspicious that some runoff gets in bringing with it copper.

    I've seen a LaMotte kit online: http://www.amazon.com/Water-Testing-...d=IFVFT4HM6B2K And I've also seen the Taylor copper test kit: K-1730 and K-1738. Anyone care to make a recommendation?

    I'd like to regularly test my copper level and don't want to haul down to the local pool store if possible.

    (btw, this site has helped me successfully maintain my pool for about a year now. love it. Thanks!)

    I would guess this one: http://tftestkits.net/K-1730-Taylor-Cop ... t-p57.html

    If there was something better that was reasonably priced, I'd trust Dave to sell it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Thanks Richard. I've ordered that one from Dave. We'll see what it says. If there is copper in there I may try a CuLator I have on hand and see if that works.
