Yes please I'll PM you
@Deneb thank you for your feedback & like the idea of filling a bucket at the same time to refill the watering can
For anyone considering this then the Colapz buckets are £19 (less 10% with code) so cheaper to buy a second watering can as they have a bucket function with blanking cap as well plus then have some watering can spare bits in case any get lost
Unfortunately @ludo and myself are having logistical problems re collection, so if anyone else would like to jump in and do a deal, don't worry about treading on my toes.
Honestly, £12 is a bargain for one of these Colapz watering cans. I only want it as a spare. Ignore @ludo 's review and make him an offer
Colapz website are clearing their stock of the 2 in 1 watering can (combined with bucket function) so if anyone fancies one in a different colour - they have pink, purple, lime & dark green, orange & black for £14.50 plus £2.95 p&p https://colapz.co.uk/product/colapz-2in1-bucket-watering-can-clearance/
Still available in bright blue at £12.35 delivered from FFX too https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Flopro-70308006-5060396791925-Colapz-Watering-Can
There are also buckets (also suitable for food, drink & water) at £9.50 https://colapz.co.uk/product/collapsible-bucket-clearance/ again in a range of colours.
The discount code doesn't work on these clearance items but the p&p stays at £2.95 whether you order 1 or 10!
No watering cans but plenty of items for inside the van!
Still stock of the clearance items on Colapz website & the watering can at FFX if anyone wants to add a little colour to their motorhoming lives!
Or not - black or dark green are options
I've been using mine for the first time this weekend
Any suggestions on how to get the inside of it dry, before folding it up again??
We just either leave to air dry or if need to collapse it then wipe it out & pop a piece of kitchen roll in the bottom to suck up any excess moisture but must remember to remove it at a later date! I do the same when packing away our electric kettle after use. Can just rinse with fresh water before using again if concerned there has been any trapped water.
Which one did you go for?
I was well up for one, but they wanted £23.95 delivery for Spain!!!
Must be back in stock just ordered one £12.35 delivered, nice one
Just need to use the friendly Funster courier service - maybe someone will be coming your way?!
Will be in NE Spain late August Roses area if any use?
@Burgo - perhaps chat to @Stewart J
I went for the dark navy blue one
Can I just ask, what is the issue with food grade v non food grade? Obviously something leaches out, but what and how dangerous is it?
If made of polyvinyl chloride(PVC), it contains harmful lead that leeches into water in levels deemed unsafe to drink.
ie carcinogenic .. same reason not to use garden hose for filling
Searching on the web it seems that current thinking is that the risks are minimal but then again Glyphosate (Roundup weedkiller) was meant to be safe but now thought to be carcinogenic - we used it for years on our gravel driveway It doesn't cost much to choose a food grade option rather than one that isn't so for us having lost family to cancer any known risk is worth avoiding if possible even if it's low.
Thanks, but Roses looks like it's over 1000km from us - its way north east of where we are! I've come up with another way to get it over now, as someone we know is coming over so I'll get it delivered to them. Ta muchly for the offer, though.
Glad you got sorted
I suppose if you are full timers it might be an issue, but it doesn't worry me over much.
Having said that, I need a hose for onboard the van, so where there is a choice I will go the food safe route.
I am a potter (40yrs), using harmful and carcinogenic substances all day, I have ridden motorcycles since I was sixteen, I don't think occasional micro particle of pvc will hurt. I had a pvc mac when I was a kid and a I wore a sou'wester!
