    Cubitainer or Chemtainer w/Spigot Sources

    I am unable to find a source for a 1gal 'cubitainer', also known as a 'chemtainer'.
    It is a collapsible plastic container inside a cardboard box. As you empty the chemistry through the spigot, the container collapses so no air remains inside.

    I used to purchase them from Porter's Camera and CPM/Delta but I can no longer find them in small quantities.

    If you know of a source, I would appreciate the information.

    Thanks in advance.

    I buy them as 10L water containers, use the water to make up the dev and put the dev back in the container.

    Hedwin, it was the first hit on a google search.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Yes, but... the minimum order is over 100 pieces!

    Do you drink wine?

    Maybe boxed wine?

    Hint, hint.

    U.S. Plastic sells them, (and lots of other useful plastic containers and tubing);
    www.usplastic.com

    I don't think they have a miniumum on the cubitainers.

    I've ordered plastic ice sacks from them before (we have a large ice maker). Great to deal with.
