    testing borate levels...

    Could you please tell me where to find a test kit for the borate levels?
    I'm interested in trying this (adding Borax) to see if I can make my water feel better.

    Thanks.....

    they're also at intheswim.com, ebay, etc. if you haven't added any borates (20 mule team borax) you should be at 0. if you follow waterbear's instructions, you should come out at almost exactly 50ppm. so go ahead and start now if you want.
