Inventions that suck: turn a 5 gallon bucket into a wet/dry vac

Gmail Hitting Some Turbulence

suckvacJust in time for the holiday season, we’re starting to see the usual crop of gadget that are, shall we say, less then top-shelf. I think it’s safe to include this on that list, the BucketVAC. When I read the website for this thing, I feel like I should be wearing a blue shirt and yelling at a camera.

To be fair, if this product works as advertised and has any quality to it, I would buy one. It’s essentially the head from a traditional wet/dry vac that attaches to a standard 5 gallon bucket. This seems like a great idea to me, being a homeowner that has done some serious remodeling.

The bad news is, it’s not available yet. The website says it’ll be out soon (Q42009), and there is a button where you can sign up to be notified when it does. Nothing about pricing or where you can buy one unfortunately. I also noticed that their customer service link seems to be broken. That’s never a good sign.
