do you sell an appropriate 5- gallon bucket

Asked by: Jay
Any bucket with the 5 gallon set of ridges on top and is the same diameter as a 5 gal. will do. I actually use a 4 gallon bucket.

Can i use this for salt water? I need one for my sump reeftank maintenance

Asked by: ron
If you are asking "will this suck up salt water" the answer is yes. This is a standard wet-dry vac that simply has no canister. If you are also asking about salt waters corrosive effects then the answer is you get what you pay for. It is a very basic shop vac that needs cleaning after nasty use. If my memory serves me correctly you remove the filter for wet applications. If I were to use it as a wet vac with salt water I would remove the filter then suck up the salt water. After the episode suck up fresh water to dilute the salt and let it dry. Put a new filter on before using it again. Remember it has no tools and a short hose.

I use it mostly connected to power tools such as sanders and routers. It sounds like a typical shop vac and will struggle with heavy (nails, etc.) and larger objects. With that in mind, it does a great job connected to my sanders precisely because it is small. My larger vac will try to suck the sander to the workpiece making it hard to control, while this one works perfectly. For stability, it works to put some weight in the bottom of another bucket and then slip the one the vac is attached to on top of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Due to sudden wind, the glass of our deck table shattered. We had glass pieces all over the deck and some on the grass below the deck. After some research, bought the Bucket Head and fitted it over the recommended bucket. What a saviour! It helped us to pick the glass pieces without hurting ourselves. We did do the initial clean up with a broom as we did not have the Bucket Head at that time. But it was a great help to pick up the balance. Thank you Home Depot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea! Looking at some of the negative reviews on this little guy you would think people didn't read the box it came in... it is a nice little portable, replaceable, shop vac for light duty jobs and water pick up.... it is not meant to replace a $50-$100 vac, it just isn't. All in all, this is a good idea and for $20 bucks, you really cant say anything bad about it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water vac for emergency clean up's Used a customer's HD vacuum while cleaning up a water system leak. Impressive little unit as it picked the water up quickly,so I bought 4 for the other service guy's. Yet to see what this does with DRY MATERIAL, but does a great job on water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Sucker A worker came to my new home to do a repair and had one of these vacuums. I hadn't seen one but really didn't need one because I had a 15 gallon shop vac. But my new home has a 20x20 garage and with 2 cars it's really tight once we added other garage stuff. My big vac was too big. So I bought the Bucket head which is the perfect size for a small space. Great suction, decent length of a cord, easy to move around in tight spaces. The hose pops out at times be nice if it screwed in like the big vac. No attachments included but extras are available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! We have a full size shop vac, but the bucket head is great for convenient smaller size! My son has special needs and he was playing in our bathroom sink. I knew he was into something when I heard him laughing. I was glad to have the bucket head handy instead or running down to the basement for the full size shop vac! It does a great job with spills & even minor flooding! I'm hoping to get a lot of use out of the bucket head, maybe I'll even get around to vacuuming my car! The backseat sure needs it :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Efficient in a Small Package I was looking for a wet dry vac to keep on board my boat that wouldn't take a lot of room and would be easy to stow. I like to keep the bilges clean and occasionally water will find its way down. On-board we always have the 5 gallon buckets so the containers are readily available. This product is so simple it's juvenile. You clip it onto the bucket and plug it in. My only complaint is the length of the hose (at 4 feet) I have to move the bucket around in order to get all the compartments. I just ordered on Amazon an 8 foot hose that matches the size 1 1/4" to extend the length of reach. I've already vacuumed around 10 gallons of water with it and it works just as well as my 6 gallon craftsman shop vac. Perhaps not as much suction but for the size and stow-ability it's definitely worth the investment. I should note that for less then 30 bucks how could one go wrong?

Has great suction and is good for vacuuming out my cars and my garage. I would have given it 5 stars except for one very annoying problem - it is very top heavy and constantly tips over unless you add a lot of weight to the bottom of the bucket, such as an inch or two of concrete or a heavy piece of metal.
