I see there's a place holder for a borate test here. I was just wondering (since I just did my first borate test using LaMotte's strips) what color the strips should be when they come out of the bottle. Mine appear to be a somewhat pinkish color already (probably between 30 and 50 on the scale). Is that what color they're supposed to be? I added enough borates to my pool to get it to somewhere in the 30-35 ppm range, but it's ready between 50 and 80 according to my strip. Anybody get different color strips out of the bottle?
