    Default COTH shopping SLEUTHS help me out!

    I'm feeding oil and recently bought the big 5 gallon container from Sam's. I would LOVE to find a big pump so I don't have to deal with pouring it, but I'm striking out. It's got a 2 1/2" screw top.

    Anyone know where to get a pump for a 2 1/2" screw top?

    Contact Colorado Dairy Services in Loveland. They do chemicals, washes etc on dairies and I know our laundry detergent comes in barrels and has a pump. I'm sure they can hook you up with something suitable, they deal with things in concentrations unsafe to human skin

    I got my pump from a food supplier to schools and restaraunts. Kind of a universal size, fits all bottles. It has held up well over several years, was fairly cheap at under $8, I think.

    Locally we have Gordon Food Centers, that supply most of that stuff. They have store outlets you can shop at, which is what I did.

    Another way to proceed would be to get a faucet intended
    to fit a plastic water cube. Turn your container on the
    side and use the faucet to drain out as much as you need
    each time.

    Try Sally's Beauty Supply. I got one there years ago.

    Bought this. Arrived today. Wrong screw top. Not 2 1/2".

    Thanks for all the other leads!

    Robin, really cool idea about just putting faucet on it and tipping it sideways!

    I second Dairy Specialists, although I'd use the one here in Greeley (maybe technically Evans??).

    Dairy Specialist is a different company than Colorado Dairy Services. They are competitors.
