    What test do you use the speedy stir on? Updated w/ pics

    I think I need this. What test will I be able to use it on? I want to get my test as accurate as I can and I think this is the ticket.

    Thanks

    Everything except the CYA and pH tests ... although some even use it for mixing the CYA test.

    Everything but the pH. I have extra vials and stirbars so I can run everything before I have to stop and wash the dishes.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Same as Richard, everything except the pH test, and I'd probably use it on that one if I could find a stir bar small enough to fit in the test block and spin!

    Re: What test do you use the speedy stir on?

    Well, I hope you guys don't laugh, but I made one. And it works like a champ. I also ordered a stir bar on eBay for 5 bucks. My homemade stir bar was the weak link. I didn't get a good vortex.

    My total investment is 8 smackaroos.

    I made it out of a computer fan motor and used a 9 volt battery for power and stuck a radio shack toggle switch on it and stole a tuppware container from the lady that runs the house to mount it in.

    There's a ton of videos on utube on how to do this.( magnetic stirrer)

    Usually things I try to make it always seems it just better buying the real thing, but this came out great and works really good.

    Well here she is, homemade magnetic stirrer.
    Once I get the real stir bar I think the vortex will go to the bottom.

    It has just a 1/4 round magnet in there now and it actually does real good with just that.
