Dolomite is even more difficult to dissolve than CaCO3. Instead of using
tablets, why don't you try to get some powdered CaCO3 from the
drugstore. That would make it much easier to do your trick with the
syringe; no need to shake vigorously for an hour.

You can order it for about $6/500 grams which is a lot cheaper than the
tablets. Or buy it by the 20 lb sack and share it with your buddies.
That is what we do here in Vancouver where we have a large group of
folks sharing supplies, sources and equipment.
