Eastern Bucket / Products and Applications

Eastern Bucket
Eastern Bucket

China has a magic teapot called "Dao Zhu Hu", English means "Inverted kettle". Its lid cannot be picked up, and you could only inject water from the bottom, but water will not sprinkle out. Inspired by it, Eastern Bucket uses the principle of communicating vessels. First of all, sealed shape means that water is not easy to sprinkle out. Secondly, it avoids excessive evaporation of water,and will not attract mosquitoes. Finally, Eastern Bucket uses injection molding technology, only has one part, and it is more suitable for poor areas. These reasons make it be truly useful buckets in arid areas.
