    Is there a way to test silver in the water?

    As one who used the Froggy for about a month, I would like to know - is there a way to test the amount of silver in the water? I know there are copper tests out there, but is there silver tests?

    I doubt you have much mineral residue from the frogster in there if you only used it for a month. Are you concerned about it for a specific reason? I used it for 5.1 seasons and never thought to ask...

    Not really a specific reason, really. I was just curious if there was a way. Seems strange to have silver containing products marketed for pools (froggy, nature2, etc.) if there's no way to test how much material they are putting in your pool! :P

    There are tests for silver in the water, for example these, but they tend to be rather expensive.
