This unit fits perfectly on the Home Depot 'Homer' 5-gallon bucket, found almost everywhere in the store & which usually runs for about $3.00. It locks on to the bucket & you can carry the entire thing by the bucket's handle.

Answer: 
Yes- any orange 5 gallon plastic Home Depot bucket is suitable. You place the vacuum on top-and clamp the vacuum head onto the bucket. It is quite secure-they don't fall off

It is louDer than my home vacuum, and I'm not talking about a Dyson quiet one. I would say it's as loud or slightly louder than standard, cheap, shop vacs. It woke and scared my wife while she was asleep.

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 Read More
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. Read Less

I think you can. I used mine to suck up a limited amount of water from a rv pipe repair and it was fine. However as a saltwater boater I will remind you that salt water is super corrosive. I would rinse everything with fresh water after using it.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 243 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 :-) October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You Need This! This vac is amazing. It vacuums and it also can be a blower. The power in this little unit is really good and I love that it attaches to my own 5 gallon bucket, so easy to throw away the mess, and you can carry it around as long as you have a handle on the bucket. I wish the power cord was a little longer but other than that I really like this vac. October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome This thing is awesome for water and soil clean up in an indoor garden setting! Very powerful and heavy duty! October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works better than I expected October 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Small but mighty! We purchased this to use the wet vac for oil mixed with water in the bilge pump compartment and it totally blew us away with the power and is super easy to use with your buckets, and storage is minimal unlike using a regular shop vac, I highly recommend October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome purchase The price is right and the suction is better than expected. Just wish it came with a few attachments. October 18, 2016
