    Where to get a good test kit - Eastern Canada

    First full season with the new pool, and I'd like to get one of the good test kits.
    Does anyone happen to know where I could get one in my area? (Hopefully in Moncton)

    I tried the links I found here, but I'm seeing that they can't be shipped to Canada.
    I found a link for Canadian customers, and I sent an email to the contact address xxxx@lowryassociates.ca.
    They replied with the contact info for their distributor here in Moncton. I called them, and they're a commercial distributor, and don;t sell to the general public. They gave me the names of the 2 pool places in town that they said can sell them.
    The first could order in a K-2006 kit, for $329 ....The other pool store had NO test kits available, except the strips.

    There's ebay and so on, but I'm thinking I'd run into problems getting something like that shipped across the border...

    Any Canadians out there that can offer help, preferably something in my city...?

    Thanks!!

    Both TF Test Kits and Taylor K-2006 cannot be shipped directly to Canada. I don't know what's the matter with Canada, but TF Test Kit's duraleigh can ship to all over the world except for Canada.
    My suggestion: get someone you know in the US purchase it and then ship it privately to Canada.
    This is my ticket for Heaven (when all's working..) :
    22k Gal gunite IGP, 38 SF Anthony DE filter, 1 HP Hayward Super Pump
    380k BTU Raypak Natural Gas Heater (Model RP405A) and solar cover
    8 gal Liquidator w/ 12% bleach, Dolphin Diagnostic Advantage robotic cleaner. 3800 ppm salt, 50 ppm borates.
