Brilliant idea there... couple of options to expand on that.
I would say use a piece of PVC, with the bottom capped. Lay it on an angle with the open end propped on a chair or something so you're not trying to work vertical... 5ft pipe plus 5ft strut requires 10ft-ish of clearance + control. Laying it down at a angle will let you work more horizontally. Make sure you use a peice of string on the Strut so you can pull it back out w/o haveing to dump it out and loose all the liquid.
or you could cut down the length of PVC pipe, and make a trough. cap both ends and fill it up.
