Best way to decant bleach from 20l containers?

Postby Eddles » Wed 30 Dec, 2020 18:42

Hi all,

I've been using bleach from 20l/25l jugs for some time now, but I keep having issues decanting bleach from their containers - when the containers are full, it always glugs out making lots of splashes - getting bleach all over the floor, myself and my clothes. When the container's nearly empty then it pours out perfectly. Is there a sprout I can buy to put on the containers to stop the splashing, or is there a pump or something? What's the best way?

This is the container I've been using.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Don't forget that bleach (sodium hypochlorite) loses it's strength over time
