This is the one we have too. I emailed Duckworks to ask a question before ordering, and got a fast, friendly reply. Very happy with the service and the product. We were going to make our own but could only find clear 2-gal garden sprayers in stores around here and wanted black to better heat the water on a sunny day.

You can use the spray paint for plastic(rustoleum?) I had one that worked well if the sun was out. The sun not being out is why I went to the Zodi.......m

Any suggestions?
Our bucket is one of those black rubber stock feed buckets.
Just fill it full of water and come back in half an hour.

One of the members of our crew can take her sea baths without warm water. Its because the cold water matches that what flows in her veins............
