    I never knew they had test strips for brake fluid and power steering fluid.

    In fact, I've never seen so many strips for stuff.

    OK, as a car geek that's really cool! I might have to give a couple of those a test (S2000 owner we also have a great car club if anyone else has one http://www.s2kca.com really just a great social group with some car activities.)


    http://www.1stoppoolstore.com/store/index.php is one of the two local stores I trust, they don't sell all the overpriced ****, they even have straight borax but I'll stick with my mule team 20. I get all my Taylor test kit refills there & my Lamotte borate test strips are $8; it's not on the website but might be worth a call. Very honest shop owner, I'm going to talk to him about TFP next time I'm in there...he really doesn't push all the typical pool store stuff. If you're near Plano Texas I suggest a stop in, very friendly staff, when I had the water boatmen they helped me out until I had the time to get the borax going with that bug out stuff & it seemed to work but the water feels MUCH better too

    All that being said, remember to support our sponsors! Even though I might get my Taylor refills there they don't sell 1/2 the kit I got from one of our sponsors here (sorry, can't remember your alias here, I know it's something to do with Durham and Raleigh!)

    it's the most complete kit I've seen anywhere and great packing, delivery, and the way he puts everything together is simply awesome! Maybe he'll become a Lamotte dealer sometime soon
    My pool works thanks to TFP

    Please support the site! pages/supporters/

    It's cheaper than your first trip to the pool store!

    and
    http://www.diywatertesting.com/insta_test_borate.html
    are the same company, Lambert's Home Services. I have posted the link to them many times in the forum before. They have fast shipping and good prices but they did try and spam us once.
    They are the only online retailer I have ever found for the LaMotte borate test strips.
