I’m primarily a pet owner, though I do breed occasionally. So visibility of my pets is a priority. I’m also disabled, and I’ve found that it is far easier for me to clean tub-style housing (racks) than my stacking cage system.
I’ve been looking for some sort of crystal-clear tub, and I’ve come across polycarbonate tubs. I believe the ones I’ve seen in racks are generally sourced from food storage products, such as Rubbermaid’s FG3308 .
So, does anyone have any experience with these tubs? I have only a rudimentary knowledge of outgasing, so I don’t know if this is something to worry about in this situation. I have seen that one very reputable maker of racks does sell models with polycarbonate tubs (RhinoRaxx’s polycarbonate palaces).
Does anyone know of any rack company that offers ‘sideways’ style racks with polycarbonate tubs? I’d imagine it would have to be custom made? I need something that will fit on a tabletop. Or if these polycarbonate tubs aren’t safe, does anyone have any alternatives when it comes to finding a crystal-clear tub?
Edit: I do not have any pet birds. (They are very sensitive to outgasing.)
