Attention fluther shoppers...can you help me find something?

Asked by mamasu (1380points) August 26th, 2008

No, I don’t have a blue light special to offer. I’m looking for something and need help from people who are better at searching than I. I’m looking for a large bowl or bucket that can attach to a hose and use a float system to keep it full without overflowing. The goal is to have a means to water the dogs outside without constantly filling the bowl/bucket. Any help would be so appreciated. I should say I don’t know if such a thing exists. I just started thinking it would be useful when I was fixing a toilet in our house yesterday. I started thinking about the float system in the toilet and applying the concept to a water bowl/bucket.

I could probably do this if you don’t mind that it would be ugly. Give me a few days to try and work something out. I will need to make a trip to Home Depot. But if anyone has a better solution that would be great. And If I can get it to work I would like to be reimbursed for parts and shipping.

sorry jp i didnt see your answer until i had already posted it….
but if you want to make me one of those bowls, i could use one for my dogs….

The bowl you posted is much cheaper then what I could make it for. For what I was thinking was a minimum of 75$ to do a good job.

Oh, you guys are great. JP, I was trying to figure out how to make one, myself yesterday. I thought it would be a fun project but given the things I should be doing with my time, projects are on the back burner. :~) Cheebdragon, thank you for finding the bowl. It’s exactly what I need.

You two rock. ;~)

Hey mamasu, Make sure you take it off and clean it out real good about every two weeks or so. Otherwise you are going to get that pink sludge in it.
