We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Equifit's newest addition to the Ag Silver line, the EquiFit CleanBucket minimizes bucket slime! Testing shows that one to two months can lapse in between bucket scrubbings. Horses prefer the taste of CleanBucket water to that of traditional water buckets.

  • Infused with ionic silver to control bacterial growth and minimize bucket slime

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from He actually drinks now! For some reason my horse as always been a picky drinker and doesn't drink much in general. I decided to try this bucket before I commited to any supplements. Believe it or not this bucket has actually increased his water consumption to an amount im comfortable with, not to mention its not getting any slime on it! This bucket is going to pay for itself in no time, because it was either this or an electrolyte I really didn't want to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! When I saw this bucket I had to give it a try! I’m a huge fan of all Equi-Fit products, so I knew this bucket had to be great. It’s a nice heavy duty plastic, with a strong metal handle. As for the slime fighting- it really works! My horse loves to eat a bite of grain, and then sip water. The regular plastic water buckets would get a film on them by the next morning from his grain dunking, but not this one. You can dump the water from the previous night and the bucket is clean! The initial cost does seem expensive, but believe me the quality and convenience are worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I was a bit leary about purchasing these buckets as I wasn't sure they would do what they said but after reading a few reviews I made the plunge. I ordered 2 buckets, one for each of my horses and they have been great. No slime, no scrubbing and one of my horses is a major hay dunker so his bucket would normally get gunky fast. Not so with the Equifit Clean bucket. I would highly recommend this bucket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean and well made... I purchased three EquiFit Clean Buckets two weeks ago, hung them in my gelding's stall, and asked the BO to skip their weekly scrubbing and just dump them and refill.So far, there hasn't been a trace of slime in them or any foul odor. Indeed, my gelding is drinking about 3 gallons/day more now than he did with his equally new standard plastic buckets.The buckets are fairly heavy and very sturdy, with a metal strip under the lip on each side, where the handle joins, to prevent it from eventually pulling through. Nice touch.Only drawback is the price. If/when that comes down, the BO will probably re-outfit her 40 stall barn.Really wish EquiFit would make large water troughs - I'd buy one for the geldings' pasture myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buckets Even though they are a little spendy keeping the slime at bay is worth it. I have an extremely picky horse, at least about his water buckets, who will not drink if there is the least little bit of slime in the bucket. These buckets will help insure that he continues to drink between the daily dumping and cleaning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I bought two CleanBuckets to "test drive" on two different horses and ended up placing both buckets in the one horse's stall because her water consumption increased. She had always concerned me because she drank too little water. Obviously the taste of the water from these buckets is so different from that of the usual plastic ones that now she actually enjoys drinking. Finally, her water consumption is now within the normal range. I'm going to be buying more of these! An excellent investment if you want the best for your horses!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from taste proof/fungus decliner I can move horses anywhere even without using these on the farm, and have had zero problems with them drinking from these while on the road. I also feel like it helped one horse with facial fungus--his appaloosa spots are fading away! Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slime Free! I'll admit I was a bit set back by the price of these buckets, but after purchasing one I am definitely going to re-order. My horse drank the water readily, and especially since he is a "hay dunker" I worry about weird bacteria growing in his buckets, even when the buckets are cleaned daily. The CleanBuckets will definitely be going on the road with me this year!
