    Just saw this on one of my favorite DIY sites:

    http://hackaday.com/2014/09/16/a-3d-...istaltic-pump/

    This was done as a proof of concept. If you know someone with a 3d printer, and can build a control system, this could be the least expensive way yet to get into automated chemical dispensing for your pool.

    That is very cool! I wonder how much flexing and friction that tube can make before it starts to leak though?

    That would depend on what tubing you put into it. I would assume given what we would be using it for, a high quality hose should be used.
