This oil change collection pan has many benefits. The oil collection hole has a large hole screen grate that keeps you from dropping the cars oil pan plug into the oil. The screen is also very useful in draining the used oil filter.

The unit seals nicely at both locations without the need for over-tightening. The drain spout design allows for a more complete draining.

I read reviews that said it leaked, but all similar products had same reviews. And sure enough after letting it collect all the oil, the drain spout leaked just a little oil. It's not a lot, but consistent. I just threw it into a plastic bag and ran it back to Advance to recycle the oil. So it works just needs to be quickly emptied.

Comments about FloTool 10 Quart Drain Container:

Haven't used this one yet, but I had one like it years ago. Much better than those open drain pans because it makes a neater job of pouring your old dirty used oil into an old plastic jug.

Comments about FloTool 10 Quart Drain Container:

At the end of the day I didn't have to clean this thing (like others out there) because oil pours directly into container, then you just twist the cover to secure contents.

      Comments about FloTool 10 Quart Drain Container:

      I like to do my own oil changes and I really like this product. I enjoy the low profile of the pan which makes it very easy to get under the vehicle and catch the drainage. The pan is not bulky, so it doesn't get in the way while working. I really like the catch screen which keeps the bolt from falling in the oil and you having to dig around for it. I like that the pan is large enough to do at least two car oil changes. The pan is easy enough to manuver, cap off, and take to an automotive shop to recycle the oil with out making a mess. I highly suggest this product to anyone who does limited oil changes at home.

                  It's an excellent design, but the cap on the side seeps. If you do an oil
                  change, make sure to take the used oil to Advance Auto Parts the same day
                  and put a towel underneath it while transporting, just in case.

              • Q:

                Why is this product so cheaply made? I bought one of these drain containers. Be VERY careful not to drop it. I dropped it from only 2 feet. The lid immediately pops all the way off no matter how hard you tighten it on and oil spills all over the place.

                I contacted FloTool twice. They do not stand by their product and I got no reply.

                • A:

                  Well there's your problem, you dropped it. Its heavy and sealed, which holds pressure, hence the lid pops off when you drop it. You screw it on tight and then be careful with it. It is cheap, but there's not really a much better alternative for the price. I've owned one for years now and never have had a problem, but I've also never dropped it.
