We use this from Grainger:

We have a large plastic garbage can on wheels with 5 gallon markings we made to test the flow.  We get in 3-4 showers before we need to empty so it is fairly efficient.

We have ceiling mounted laboratory safety showers that have a 12" diameter head.  Our shower testing kit includes a bucket, pump, and shower curtain on a rod.  Unfortunately the shower curtain diameter is too small and causes a lot of splashing and need for clean-up.    We tried to make a bigger one using a bigger diameter ring but that also didn't work well

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a safety shower test kit that stays contained.
