When it comes down to it, a bucket is a bucket. I purchased the bucket as well as a grit guard as a different color compared to what I originally owned. I have been using large box store brand buckets mainly because they are so cheap, but high quality. The bucket purchased from Adam's was going to be my rinse only bucket, mainly since it was white/clear in color. At the same time of my purchase, I included the grit guard. All of my buckets have grit guards and this would be no exception.

The first time using the bucket, I noticed one issue. The Grit guard would continually spin at the bottom of the bucket. Barely any water movement would spin the grit guard. I sent a message to customer service as well as a video showing my results. I used a different grit guard that was not included in the bucket and I experienced the same issue for comparison purposes. The response by Adam's staff was very quick (as it normally is). I was told, the buckets have slight tolerances and , "The quick solution I use to solve this problem with some buckets is to take a thin zip-tie and zip it around the outer-edge of one piece of grate on the Grit Guard, cutting off the excess. This will usually add 1-2mm of diameter to the Grit Guard and cause it to stop spinning inside of the bucket. If it still spins, I will take a second zip-tie and attach it 180 degrees across from the first zip-tie. This should allow the Grit Guard to fit nice and snug, and it will not cause any issues with your wash pad/wash mitt/etc".

Over the past week, I added two zip ties as mentioned above and waited until the weekend to try out the product. Well, 7 zip ties later, I am still experiencing the grit guard spinning. it is nowhere near as bad as originally experienced, but I still have the grit guard spinning. Looking down into the bucket, you can see the zip ties adding pressure to the sidewalls, but it also is pushing in the grit guard itself. Seems that the bucket is too smooth on the walls of the bucket and the grit guard does not have any bite. The only way I have solved the spinning (and still it is not 100% perfect), was adding a grit guard washboard that I had used from a different bucket. The grit guard and washboard will still spin, but having the grit guard washboard added, it takes some of the pressure away from the bottom of the original grit guard. I am not having to use both hands/arms to hold the grit guard and wash pad.

Very unhappy with what has happened on these products. I like the fact that the bucket is white/clear, but at the end of the day, my $3-4 buckets with a grit guard are outperforming the Adam's bucket by a long shot.

I never mentioned it in the email to Adam's staff, but the application of the Adam's sticker is terrible. I have bubbles all over the sticker and it seems like these are added as a quick afterthought. If you are OCD as I am, then you might have an issue. I removed the sticker because the application was so poor.

What sold me on this bucket was the gamma seal lid and plus it has the awesome "A" logo on it so people know you mean business! I live in Alaska so the last time that I can detail is around the fall season, it starts to get cold out but I can still get a few more washes in before winter hits. Having the gamma seal lid is a must! I'm able to keep the water in the buckets warm for longer periods of time with the lids on that way I don't freeze my hands off. These buckets are super rigid, and the grit guards are definitely a nicer plastic than others I have used.

Great quality buckets and a must have 2 of. Also great for storing different 16oz products with nozzles. This and detail spray should be among your first Adams order.

I love this bucket for quick and scratch free wash sessions! The grit gaurd at the bottom of the bucket removes dirt from the wash brush and makes it safe to wash really dirty vehicles. Every detailer should use this to preserve their vehicles paint!

You may be thinking to yourself, "why do I need this bucket?" You need this bucket. The grit guard works really well at cleaning all that gunk off your wash pad. The screw on top is perfect when you need to detail but you're not sure if there's a water source where you're going. Also, the big "A" sticker gets all the ladies.

Great way to take your car washing game to the next level. Make sure to have three buckets with grit guards. Wheels, rinse, and wash buckets. These are the way to go.

You may ask yourself, "why do I need this bucket when I get buy or use any regular old bucket?" Well I'll give you a few reasons why you should get this bucket. For one, it's a white frosted bucket. You'll be able to tell if it's time to dump your dirty water and refill it with clean water. Two, it's a 5 gallon bucket and I'm telling you you will need it. The wash pads hold so much soap and water. If you try to use a small bucket out the garage you will constantly need to refill it especially if you are washing a large vehicle. Three, it comes with a grit guard. You need this to keep scratches down. It really does help keep you pads clean and keep the dirt from swishing around. Four, it's a nice hieght for sitting on it and cleaning your wheels. If you have weak knees this is great for that. And Five, it's a tough bucket! It's hard to crack. It can take a beating. If it falls on the ground, if you throw it in the back of your truck. It's not flimsy! Store bought buckets can and will get flimsy, cave in, and you'll probably lost a lot of water bringing it from point A to point B. This bucket is is a what a bucket should be!
