    Why would you return a bucket? Who is going to take their bucket back from you?

    Nobody rents them EK, it's just like the old days, when you bought a bottle of pop there was a deposit on the bottle in the price.
    You took the bottle back to the shop (recycling in the early days) and you got 3d or 5d back

    Oh dear oh dear so you go to the merchant and you buy a bucket of gear for 20 and off to work you go, You use all the gear and your left with a really nice bucket.

    Option 1 :- Because you really like the gear you buy some more and soon you have a big collection of buckets which you can return to get a refund of 5 and the merchant washes and refills the bucket.

    Option 2 :- Because they are really nice buckets you decide to keep them and mix your own.

    Lol ok, I think that's what we all do, eh? After using Smartmix, promix, or even Knauf, we use the buckets time and again. Just never heard of any of them giving you money back for the buckets!
    sorry for seeming so confused, but after the opening post.........,..........

    When I want some good buckets I buy walls and ceilings sealer the buckets that comes in are great and last years, failing that I buy some nice Green buckets from local guy who works in a food factory for 2 each they are not a s good but a cheaper option.

    Default Pump bucket

    Any of you chaps seen a pump bucket, the foot valve sits on a hole and the mud fills the hole so you dont have to scrape round the bucket when it gets low. Can find them anywhere I wonder if the stopped making them.
