MF Groover Rental?

Any one provide a service like you find on the Grand? Blackadar was less than helpful so please don't recommend them as they are not interested in renting groovers.

Got a June 12th Middle Fork/Main trip.

Probably Not

I doubt that you will find anyone that will rent a groover out. They are expensive and can be forgotten at camp or come back not clean. Most people won't want to deal with that hassle. If I were you I would just pick up a 5 gallon bucket with a gamma lid or get an old 20mm Ammo Can from an army navy surplus store. Either is cheap and legal on MFS. Good Luck.

Try this place...

Call Dave at Canyon Whitewater Supply and see if it is worth it to detour to IF.

Canyon Voyages in Moab is a short distance out of your way and rents them. Not gonna be cheap for the extra days. Might just make sense to buy one if renting for a week at that rate. CV are good folks though.

U Rec Programs

Check out the outdoor programs at these colleges:

Going through SLC? The U has a big rental program and I assume rents outside the college (our local ones do). I see a groover for $8 day.

Equipment Rental | Campus Recreation Services

Ditto USU in Logan - I can see that they rent to the public:

Rentals - Campus Recreation -

ISU rents Partner goovers - the pinnacle of the grooving experience for $7 per day if more than 2 days.

I normally do. River Bank system with up to 4 tank, reasonable. But they will be on the Grand in June. Try hitting up Nate at Selway Fab, he may be able to 'demo' something out of boise.

Imodium shakes for everyone the first day will do the trick too.

We rent groovers, though our online payment system is not active right now. Pocatello, ID.

City of Pocatello - Outdoor Equipment Rental

Prices are as low as $7 per day per tank for long trips.

Jonny partner systems. Bring em back clean or pay us a ridiculous amount to clean them. ($100/hour). Just use the SCAT machine in riggins, NBD.
