You need to take the jug cap off of jug number 3.

Does the bigger container have drainage holes? If it does not I forsee your containers floating around in the bucket you put them in.

I put mine in milk crates (free from yard sales) or you can buy at some stores. They have holes on the bottom and 4 milk jugs fit in perfectly.

Well I posted but it didn't show up try again. No the bottom container doesn't have holes but it will now!!
I've got a couple of the milk crates I'll look for more at garage sales this summer.
Cap is off!!
