Has anyone experimented with colapasable buckets? I love the concept and already bought a nice style footpump but can't get over the adding the bulk of 2 hard sided buckets.

By the time you stack the two hard side buckets inside each other. Put the pump, second lid, spigot, hand soap, sanitizer, dish soap, Clorox or Steramine in the buckets there is not much wasted space. The hard side buckets protect the contents and really help contain any accidental spills. That said, I have no idea how you could stack collapsible buckets so you did not have to bend over to wash. Hard to pump when bent down.

I use collapsible buckets but with a much simpler system... one tin can with a makeshift bail and holes in it hangs over the dirty bucket and a second can is in the clean water bucket.. just take a scoop of clean water and put it in the hanging can with holes in the bottom and you have about a minute of running water.. if i where to go foot pump i would go hard buckets.. as stated above that stuff needs a home anyways.

Last Salt trip, I figured out how to pack a 2 gallon bucket inside of my 5 gallon hand wash system, including my soap, bleach, and pump set up.
We used the the small bucket for trash.
I used to take a smaller set up on the small trips, but got sick of making my back hurt more from stooping over. Kinda like a Paco pad, a few key things that improve comfort, can be worth it....

My set up is square 4 gallon buckets. They pack really easy 10' x 10" x 17" when stacked inside each other. When set up the spigot is 33" off the ground. Because they are square I can get a 2nd lid packed inside. I had a trip that a 5 year old found a drowned chipmunk in the dirty water bucket in the morning, not good!! That was when I ditched the round buckets so I could pack a lid for both wash containers at night. No chipmunks/bugs/surprises in the morning. Check with local restaurants, some of them buy Mayo in them and they are food grade and usually free. The lid snaps on so tight they a virtually water proof and works well for dry goods as long as your not on your top for a very long time. A single bucket with lid is 10" x 10" x 13".

Another good source for free buckets, is the bakery in your local grocery store. They get cake frosting and donut glaze in the things, and end up trashing them otherwise. Haven’t paid for a bucket since!

Just what I was looking to see in this thread. I was trying to think who I know that has cats that might have kitty litter buckets because I would be stoked to build my handwash station with square buckets. I knew there was at least one faction of the food service industry that would get something in the square buckets.

Thanks

So are you supposed to dispose of dead chipmunks in the river or above the high water mark?


I just scored a frosting bucket today, I'm going to piece something together before a salt trip in a few weeks. What have you guys been using to weigh the sucky hose in the bottom of the fresh water bucket?

Throw it off away from camp, above the high water line somewhere. Let the ravens and buzzards eat it if they want to. Keep any disease out of the river where it might make boaters sick.

I recycle old sink weights, like what is on the sprayer attachment hose underneath your kitchen sink. Easy for me to come by, cause I do home repair for a living, i so just save them when I replace someoneís faucet, gonna toss the old one anyway.

I have also used large nuts before, but have found that the bleach in the hand wash makes my nuts get rusty.
A non metallic or plastic coated, weight, is best.

Are you guys cutting holes or slots in the lower lid for hose access? Has anyone tried painting the lower bucket black to warm the water in the afternoon sun? I was thinking that would be the inner bucket when stored so you don't have a burn hazard while on your boat.
