I made a sludge barrel, saw it on Instagram, buy a 32 gallon trash can, drill a hole on the side about 8" from the bottom and put a spicket there. Then dump all your grout or waste water in it,the next day the sludge settles to the bottom and you open the spicket and its pretty much clean water. I used this method on an office building in my downtown area. I hooked a hose to the spicket and drained the water to an area outside the office and after about 3 times doing that on the job I cleaned the sludge and through it in the trash.

Most of the time a dump any nasty water in an inconspicuous area. but the sludge bucket comes outta the shop every once in awhile.

I like that idea ^

Kind of a stretch on the topic BUT - is there a mortar mixing bucket out there that is flexible silicone or rubber, rugged enough to stand up to the job but cleans out slick and easy?

rubi or ramondi makes a bucket like you describe. Sal had a video on it a couple of years ago

I’ve seen the beast mixer on Instagram. It’s a heavy duty silicone insert you put into a 5 gallon bucket. From the real world reviews I’ve seen people like it. Scrape the sides at the end of the day, dump out the cured thinset mortar the next morning.

Beastmixer looks like a very practical time and water saving product. Wonder why these and/or similar buckets or bucket liners aren't more available to the trade. Not on Instagram or FB so no way to buy the Beastmixer for me.

I DM’d beastmixer account and he said he doesn’t have a link outside of Facebook or Instagram yet, but anyone can email him if you’re interested. badskiny@msn.com

That's crazy that he doesn't have a website. I've had my eye on one of those for a while. Not sure why I haven't tried it out yet.
