Pouring small amounts
Problem: Transporting and pouring small quantities (1 qt or so) of fluids for jobs such as topping off hydraulic tanks on portable equipment or servicing small engines are a frequent maintenance task.
Problem: Transporting and pouring small quantities (1 qt or so) of fluids for jobs such as topping off hydraulic tanks on portable equipment or servicing small engines are a frequent maintenance task. Is there a way to do the job without hauling around heavy cans and funnels to remote locations or difficult-to-service locations?
Solution: Use heavy-duty, zip-lock storage bags to hold the fluid. The bags are low cost, clean, store easily, and maneuverable into an infinite number of positions for pouring without a funnel. Most bags have an area for labeling and can be resealed and used continually for the same liquid.
