Oooh, this just gave me a great idea! One of our closest couple friends are chemists. Duh me. He's a professor and she's in pharmaceuticals. Surely they have an extra something lying around I could borrow in exchange for unlimited pool time (which they basically already have anyway!).
This is what I went with, have it set up as a mini lab right off of the pool. Lab 1 Lab 2
I bought the magnetic stirrer, some glass beakers, and the graduated cylinders all on Amazon for less than $50 total.

Or you could have had a Speedstir for $44.90 plus shipping...

Or you could support TFP for $100 (https://www.troublefreepool.com/blog/2019/01/22/become-a-tfp-supporter/) since :lovetfp: and get $35 in gift certificates to apply to a Speedstir. It comes with a bean. And a product from the TFP store. And I think possibly a future discount for TFP stuff? (I might be wrong about that last point)

I’m in, $40AUD or ~$30USD delivered off ebay. I’ll use this for inside testing, calcium, salt, borate and still keep my SpeedStir for poolside testing of FC and TA where needed. I just need to build the house to use it in... :)
