Looking for Containers

Hello Fish Folks, I have been all over town looking for those rubber tubs you guys are using for sumps and also been looking for water carrying containers...where do you guys find those at? I have been to Wal-Mart, Pet-Smart, Target, Kmart, and the local farming supply without any clue.. any suggestions would be great. thanks always Mike

Bought mine at Meijer, but I've also bought them at Walmart. They have a ton of them.

The rubbermaid tubs should definitely be in Wal-Mart or K-mart type places. I use old gallon jugs for carrying/storing water and I also have a 5 gallon water cooler type jug. Usually you can find these at any store that has a filter water vending machine...like Wal-marts or grocery stores. HTH

Your first choice, Wal-Mart, has plenty of them in just about every store I have been in..May want to check again in the home/organization section usually near the closet stuff.......

Here is a link to Rubbermaids website to give you something to go by...

I picked up mine at Home Depot in the storage section. I just use an ordinary 5-gallon bucket for transporting and a rubbermaid tub for storage.
