When I first purchased this item I loved it. I was able to remove my oil drain bolt and my oil filter at the same time and allow both to drip out as opposed to doing it one at a time with my older drain pan. The second time I went to use it oil stated coming out the spout. I thought I left it lose and tried to tighten it, that is when I realized the cap was cracked and would no longer seal. I found that the caps from a 20oz power-aid and the one from my 1 gal VW coolant container fits just fine. The coolant container cap fits the best so now I'm back in business. If you plan to purchase this or currently have one ditch the cap and dig through your recycle bin and find one that fits.

Leaks!!

Overall it's a good design but the drain cap leaks! If you try to tighten it the cap just pops off and won't provide a strong seal.

Overall it's a good design but the drain cap leaks! If you try to tighten it the cap just pops off and won't provide a strong seal.

I took it back to the store and looked at the other ones on the shelf and they do the same thing.

I was disappointed because it has larger oil capacity than other containers.

    Comments about FloTool 15 Quart Drain Container:

    It was extremely hard to recycle oil prior to purchase of this container and countless times I would end up spilling untold amounts of oil in my truck or car getting carpet,trunk,truck bed full of messy hard to clean oil spills and now I can transport it to a recycle center and not worry about spilling it . plus it's got a wide drain into surface that allows oil to enter the container with ease . screw on surface plug allows for a spill free transport to my nearest advanced auto parts to recycle oil plus spout with screw on lid and gasket allow for easy pouring disposal

        Comments about FloTool 15 Quart Drain Container:

        The cap does not seal and upon tightening (by hand) cracks because of it's flimsy design. I'm not the only one with this experience, so safe to assume it's not the nut on the handle. The company should make and give users improved caps.

          Comments about FloTool 15 Quart Drain Container:

          Got this to replace one that I used for about 20 years (I only lost it due to a house fire) that was simalarly designed but was much better made. I ordered this online assuming it was similar quality to my previous one - I was wrong. This one is much thinner plastic and the center cap hole is simply punched out - not a threaded recepticle. Also, the old one had handles on both ends so you could carry it one handed without making a mess and hang it up when not in use without dripping oil down the wall. I will look for a better made pan, if they are still made. Hope that helps you make a decision.

            Comments about FloTool 15 Quart Drain Container:

            This, like many oil drain pans, works well at collecting the oil that is draining from a vehicle, but nothing more. The plastic cap on the spout broke almost immediately. As a result, I have to pour the collected oil into another container (usually the empty oil jugs I just used). I have to leave the drain pan on an old towel to keep oil from staining my garage. Some epoxy on the cracked cap may be a better option to buying a new pan.

                  It is great. I can slide it under my car without having to jack it up. The pour spout is great for putting the old oil in containers.

                  • Q:

                    The plug in the center of the draining area stripped & got lost. The Drain pan is fine but can't find where to obtain a replacement plug (checked Blitz web site). The plug was pretty flimsy but a replacementwould probably would keep oil from leaking during transport or storage.

                      Sorry, we do not have the drain pan plugs available with us at the moment. However I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance Auto store and our representative would be glad to assist you with drain pan accessories.
