Alkaline swimming hole

We are intersted in seeing what microbes can live and grow in such a harsh environment, so we decided to put microbe traps in the high pH pool and will check back in a year to see what grew on them. In order to deploy these microbe traps, I had to go for a little swim in the pH 11 water.

Good thing I packed my bathing suit and goggles!
