    Question Borate drop-based testing - any update on suppliers?

    Saw an old post about Apollo-Piscane (Montreal based company) selling a borate test kit but it not being made available in the States. Any update in that or an alternate supplier?

    I don't think it's even available for us Canadians. I can't add it to my shopping cart on his website. Probably discontinued for whatever reason

    Thanks for the info. I guess I'm stuck with "guess"-strips until someone comes up with drops.

    Actually, I'll give him a shout and see what's up. I'll let you know once he gets back to me.

    Paul from Apollo Piscines got back to me (Always a pleasure to deal with him). It is still available and the listing is back up. http://piscines-apollo.com/cubecart/...p-borates.html

    Only problem is that the USA restriction is still applicable

    Darn!!

    Perhaps when next you speak with him, you might suggest they license their "trade secret" recipe to TFTestKits.net (the dude that owns this forum) and let them sell it for a cut of the profits. I'm sure the market here for a good borate test kit is pretty strong.

    Thanks for looking into that....I guess I need to start searching Kayak.com for cheap airfare to Montreal

    Montreal is an amazing city to live in/visit. You would not regret it! Just make sure you brush up on your French...hehe
