  1. Default Anyone know of a marked mop bucket

    Ok, perhaps not the most technical question. I'm trying to find a marked mopped bucket to help me properly measure how much water I'm draining out during water changes. I have a 10 gallon so it doesn't have to be anything too big. I would just like to find one that has markings for every gallon. If it had markings for every half gallon that would be even better.

    Does anyone know of mop buckets with this? I'm having a very hard time finding any that are marked.


    Just figured out the right words to type in amazon to get what I need. "measuring bucket" is pulling up plenty of results. Sorry for the stupid thread, apparently they're not as hard to find as I thought.

    You could use a black marker and just mark it yourself.

    The search string will be graduated bucket
    Cost and shipping will be in the $13 - $20 range.

    If you don't mind DIY, a light colored 5 gallon bucket from a big box store, a marker and some measuring cups will do the job.

    Just thought I'd share the one I ordered. I had a gift card to spend so I thought Id go all out and get a premarked one. I like it because the markings can easily be viewed upon looking into the bucket. Apparently I ordered the last one for now.

    Get a 5 gallon bucket and a one gallon jug. Fill the bucket one gallon at a time and mark it off at each interval

    $15 for a bucket? Holy Moly. I got mine at the Dollar Store for $2.

    I just drain half the tank doing water changes and fill the tank back up. Maybe you have a saltwater tank?

    My local Walmart has a blue 2.5 gallon bucket for $4. It has quarts and liters marked. The increments were a little hard to see so I hit them with a Sharpie.
