Thanks for that tip, a great solution; I'm going to check into that bowl. I tried the "remote filtering" thing two summers ago with a gallon ziplock baggy -- worked great, it even preheated the leftover unfiltered water when placed in the sun for later cooking -- but it required someone to hold the bag and another to pump, making it suddenly a two-person job. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> On the third day it got poked by a twig and developed a hole, so I put that idea away -- until now.

Good to know the Miniworks' handle is a lot sturdier -- I'd probably be using it less than you do, too, so it's a contender in the search.
