If you have any other kits at all, you can use differnt test tubes from different kits. So long as they have a 5 mL mark. Just throwing that out there.

You can buy a cheap pH kit for a few bucks which has a 5 ml test tube.
Make it idiot proof and someone will just make a better idiot.

I've cracked a couple of these as well. I've used the tubes from other tests since it's almost impossible to get another without buying a kit.

Take a look here, they are really inexpensive and have lots of little useful stuff.

Aslo, see if your doctor, local college or other ecademic or medical location has some you can buy or have. I had a friend who used to get them from the local medical center because they threw them out all the time.

I just buy them singly from the lfs but I wish I could buy them by the 24 pack. They break, lose seal, etc on a regular basis. It would probably be cheaper just to buy a new test kit for pH or something instead of having someone ship one to you. Shipping will be just as much.
