    @Deneb thank you for your feedback & like the idea of filling a bucket at the same time to refill the watering can (y)

    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 (y)(y)(y)

    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?

    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 :eek: 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.

    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!
