Professional 5 Gallon Wash Bucket- BLACK

The essential car wash bucket.

The 5 Gallon Wash Bucket is a must-have for any detailer, hobbyist or professional. Fill it up with your favorite car shampoo and you’ll have plenty of soapy water to clean your car, large truck, SUV, RV, or boat.

The 5 Gallon Wash Bucket accommodates large wash brushes, such as the Boar’s Hair Wash Brush with Telescopic Handle, so you can complete large jobs faster.

Get two buckets for a safer wash! Professionals recommend the two-bucket system to guard against wash-induced swirls. Fill one bucket with soapy water and fill the second bucket with clean water. Each time you need to reload your wash mitt, rinse it in the clean water first. Then reload the mitt in the soapy water. This extra step will keep the wash water clean and reduce the amount of dirt you transfer back to the paint.

A quality wash bucket is Car Washing 101! This heavy duty 5 Gallon Wash Bucket gives you plenty of soapy water for large jobs and it makes a handy storage container between washes.

Great product!
Great bucket for the price. I needed a new one, for doing wheels. I bought this one because it was reasonably priced. I already had a the Grit Guard so I didn't need to buy one to put in it. When I got it, the Grit Guard fit right down into the bucket without any modification or anything. I filled it up with water and started washing. I use this black bucket specifically for wheels- nothing else. If you do the same, then pick up a bucket like this.

Nice bucket
Heavy-duty and sturdy

Works great
Works like it should just wish the grit guard would lock down in so when dumping it wouldn't fall out

A standard bucket that does the job
I needed a couple bucked to do a proper 2 bucket wash and these work great. Grit guard fits perfect and they've held up well.

Better bucket
As crazy as it sounds, this ain't no Homer bucket. I replaced an older wash bucket with this bucket and a grit guard. The bucket is deeper and does a better job of keeping my wash mitts cleaner while washing off the New England winter nasty's. The deeper bucket holds more water/soap which is also a bonus. The material is thicker and more robust as well. Not a big deal now but a statement toward the typical Blackfire good quality and probable longevity of this bucket.
ProsDeeper bucket holds more water. Grit guard fits snuggly but easily removed. Thicker, heavier material lends to good longevity.
ConsOnly "suggestion" with all of these kinds of buckets is a little more substantial handle. The little plastic tube over the wire handle is small and they always break from general usage. Plenty of "hacks" out there to make these better but something from the mfg would be nice.
