Collapsible watercan/bucket

Post by Bulletguy on Mon Apr 09, 2018 5:46 pm

Often when at a campsite i've found myself some distance from the nearest water tap supply. To save moving the van which means packing every down (!!) a watering can does the job but with vans like mine, space is always at a premium and there is no room for a conventional garden type watering can. Yes i carry a length of hose but that's only around 5mtrs or so. So i looked around for a collapsible one and found this;



I bought the 2 in 1....bucket and watering can. It's just arrived today and must say i'm very impressed by the build quality. It packs down to 3" depth x 9.5" width so could easily be stored in a drawer! But i will keep mine in my back box.

There are two style types....distinguished mainly by the handle. The one with the thicker handle i avoided after reading buyer comments it was awkward to fill due to the zipped lid. It's also the more expensive of the two!

I opted for the one you see on the YT clip at 5min 48sec.

I couldn't find any local store selling them so had a look on ebay. Best price there is £14.37. Amazon sell them at £20......but then i found this place which is where i bought mine;  https://www.manomano.co.uk/watering-can/flopro-colapz-watering-can-1677958?product_id=2180975

Yep, these things are soo handy.  Mine gets used pretty regularly. It has the zipped lid, I think that was all that was available when I got it a few years ago.  I had to fit an extension to enable me to pour it into the tank.

That's worth noting as i'd never thought about that! Will have to check the access on mine tomorrow. Must admit i've not assembled it fully yet as everything is there and neatly packed so would have just stuck it straight into my back box.

Better give it a dry run (or wet in this case!) tomorrow and see how my tank access is.  up!

I bought one from Manomano. It arrived yesterday. 10 litres capacity, perfect. Tried it out and I can see the need to extend the spout a bit. I will keep a short length of hose for this in the toilet cassette locker for when I fill the toilet header tank.

I can see how it might be useful for carrying grey water away from a full waste tank as well.

I would recommend this item

Yes you are right just as Aethelric mentioned. Tested mine today and will need a short extension. It's a good idea anyway to have a flexible end rather than rigid going into the filler
