Working on a DIY Co2 drop checker using baby bottle

So the past few days I've been worried about Co2 levels in my new 55g, and was trying to find a cheap solution where i could just use stuff i already have for the aquarium or laying around the house.
Digging through the cupboards i noticed an old baby bottle so lets begin.

Inverted the nipple and using Loctite Gel I superglued it to the bottle.




Cut off just the very top of the nipple. This is where the Co2 from the aquarium will enter the testing chamber.




Now i should just need to work on the solution. I previously picked up some distilled water from the store. I'm going to do some research on how to do this.
