My dehumidifier bucket has gotten a leak somewhere in the seam and the model has been discontinued. My husband used some kind of marine epoxy on it but it is still leaking. I have water in the basement and need to use it.

The company had some refurbished machines left in the warehouse and sent 3 buckets for free from those machines as I have 3 of their dehumidifiers -- just in case the others start to leak. I have all 3 going as it is humid in here right now and I was told to keep the humidity down by the remediator. (I just received the buckets but am afraid to open the package until it stops raining 3 days from now and I can go outside and wash them out. We have been deluged by rain. My neighbor had the fire department suck the water out of his basement.

They said they clean them when they get them back for whatever reason and if I use bleach and water before I use it shouldn't it be OK? What concentration - 3/4 cup bleach to a gallon of water??????? I just do not want someone else's mold spores -- I had enough of my own. Since the buckets are plastic and it is not the unit itself I am hoping....

Please advise. Thanks much.

Just spray them with some 409 and wipe them out. Are they completely gunky or something???
