    Cheap 1mtr blue measuring bowl.

    Managed to pick one up from a seller on fb,
    Ajm put me on to.
    There are a few scuffs and scratches here and there.
    And the top edge isnt too pretty but nothing a bit of a file and sanding won't sort out, and about £200 cheaper than shop bought 1 mtr bowls....
    £65 delivered Including the adhesive measuring tape.
    Think they are the same as the plasterers baths in toolstation.
    But in blue not white...

    Just need something to fill it...

    I did the same mate looked everywhere...
    Probably knows where they are made and had a batch done in a blue colour...?

    As i worked it out can't be making a lot on them...
    The white ones are about £45 in toolstation plus delivery, plus the tape measure....

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread! But just wondering how people were getting on with the diy measuring bowls?

    I would like a 1m one myself, but donít want to pay £150 or more in koi tax!

    Cheers

    Found this on eBay.
    I just bought one,
    I’ll let you know what it’s like when it arrives, it’s advertised as a dog bath so should be pretty strong.
