    Finally got my hands on two of these babays. I wonder how I ever managed. You can flush a head without turning it on, bail holes will speed and hardly get wet. Great tool.

    How much water do you think that tube holds? And where did you get it? I saw it once on some Arizona guy's web site, but now Google doesn't return anything for 'Sucktube'.
     
  3. I was just at the "factory"....Bill Painter's garage....he is a great friend of mine and he is thankful for all the interest in his sucktube. He even gave me a nice cigar today and thanked me...he makes lots of other cool things also....his website is:

    Tell him I sent you....the Krik It is a very usefull tool to have also.

    I think that sucktube holds about 1.5 gallons of water, but you can pump it as fast as you can suck and shoot....best tool I have.
    I also have a very small one which is nice to have and not as bulky.
