E-Z Test Pool Supplies is partnered with Lamotte to feature their popular test strips for sale online and at all three of our retail locations.

Lamotte has been a committed leader in water analysis going all of the way back to its start in 1919. Today the company continues to create products that are constantly being improved and backed by strong technical support. Strong customer service and a dedication to its craft is what makes Lamotte stand out in the pack.
