Please Post a pic or detailed description of the buckets when they arrive. I am very curious and HOPING they are what i have been looking for.
I prefer Black Buckets but they are not as necessary IMO as the type of rim on the top of the bucket.
The ideal bucket would be able to fit together leaving an inch to an inch and a half between the two buckets. This way the flood reaches maximum height inside the buckets.
One easy fix for the tall rimmed buckets would be to cut inches off the top of the buckets. An example would be taking a rim or two off of the top of the style of bucket I am using here as the controler bucket.
Thw White bucket I am using here is a Full Beam and is the closest to ideal as i could find, and BELIEVE ME,, I have found , contacted and asked for samples of product to be sent to me from every distributor mentioned here.
I would be shocked to hear of a supplier I haven't contacted.
I have yet to recieve a single sample and most of the salespeople I have contacted are extremely lame. It's hard for me to imagine how they keep their jobs .
If you order a Basco catalog online they WILL have a salesperson contact you the next day. :tup:
Calling them is on the to do list but for this mucked up version of my tutorial were gonna fly with what we have on hand.
Ideally and one reason I haven't gotten to this sooner is that all parts must be readily and easily available to most individuals.
Also I would liketo re-write this at a later time using components for our friends across the pond. I would imagine there are converters that are used to adapt the current which would make use of this system not a problem in European Countries.
I was actually considering marketing my larger version of this system, of course I would have to make a change in how the switches work, and that, I haven't been able to do.
I also have idea's for a different bucket system but that would require me to have a specialty bucket made. To do that cost Money. Lot's of Money for design and limited maufacturing.
I'll do my best to get back to this tomorrow. There are a few other things I need to do and gather. Just a few hours ago, while screwing up some wallboard my old POS ladder finally gave way taking me down with it.
That didn't hurt.
I am having extreme pain in the top of my ankle at the moment so it's limiting my ability to move around pretty much.
Hopefully after a good soak and nights sleep we'll be back in action tomorrow.
Saty Safe, Free and High . :tup:
