Accurately measuring chemicals in the field is a difficult task. Uneven terrain and weather conditions impact your accuracy, and inconsistent measurements hamper efficiency and create health risks for workers and the public. Finding the right measuring container is essential in providing consistent measurements in the field. While measuring pitchers work great in contained areas, they aren’t designed for storage in vehicles or cabinets like containers. In this blog, we’ll review different types of measuring tools to help guide your decision.

Tip-and-Pour Containers

Tip-and-pour containers are sealed measuring containers that work by tipping the container to fill the measuring chamber until you reach the desired level. This allows the user to pour with confidence. These containers are durable and are built to withstand various chemicals across multiple industries.

Industries That Use Tip-and-Pour Containers

The user-friendly qualities of tip-and-pour measuring containers make them a popular measuring tool across various industries, including:


The agricultural industry requires fertilizer and pesticides to increase crop yield. Precise and accurate measurement helps provide growers peace of mind that pours are accurate every time. These containers also offer convenient storage for dangerous chemicals when not in use.

Lawn and Turf

The lawn and turf industry frequently handle seed, fertilizer, and pesticides on landscapes. Improper measuring impacts a lawn’s appearance and exposes the user to health risks. Tip-and-pour measuring containers make it easy to measure on the go and store chemicals in vehicles or chemicals.

Squeeze-and-Pour Measuring Bottles

Squeeze-and-pour measuring bottles are twin neck measuring containers that easily dispense chemicals and soaps on the go. These types of measuring tools are very user friendly. You just squeeze the bottle until the chamber is filled to the preferred height and pour. Squeeze-and-pour measuring containers are ideal if you’re looking for secure measurements without the risks of spills and offer convenient storage in vehicles and cabinets.

Industries That Use Squeeze-and-Pour Measuring Bottles

Similar to tip-and-pour containers, squeeze-and-pour measuring bottles feature user-friendly characteristics that make them popular across various industries, including:


Growers use squeeze-and-pour measuring containers because they have the durability to handle pesticides and other dangerous chemicals. Containers with squeeze-and-pour functionalities consistently provide accurate measurements and are ideal for working in the field.

Food Service

The food service industry requires accurate measurements to comply with federal and state safety regulations and avoid lawsuits. Squeeze-and-pour measuring bottles ensure accuracy in every step of the food service process and provide peace of mind by securely storing food and cleaning supplies.
