You’d think that as much time as we spend dealing with buckets and lids, someone would have brought a higher end bucket to market long before now. Granted, almost of our buckets come from the sea salt mixes we buy but I don’t know how many times I’ve personally cursed any given manufacturer for not being able to make a lid that will easily and securely snap onto a bucket. The Instant Ocean bucket made some progress with a screw on lid but this new “chemical grade” bucket appears to hit the mark. A deep groove channel and a recessed O-ring ought to make the Seachem Salinity bucket something to fight over. Now let’s hope Seachem releases the Salinity Sea Salt already.
