    Testing for borates

    Hi, I'm a pool forum transfer, I'm wondering if you can tell me what you need to get to test for borates if you are going to be adding borax. I don't see it in any of the test kits. Thanks a lot.

    I know that Aquachek and Lamotte both make dip test strips.

    The laMotte strips seem to be the best choice right now.
