A water bucket is a bucket filled with water.

Obtaining[edit]

To fill an empty bucket with water, use it on a water source block. The block is consumed in the process. Flowing water does not fill a bucket.

Using an empty bucket on a cauldron filled with water (water level 3) empties the cauldron and fills the bucket.

Water buckets can also be filled by placing an empty one in the fuel slot of a furnace, and a wet sponge into the oven slot. The bucket is filled when the smelting process completes, which also leaves the sponge dry and ready to be reused.

Water buckets can be found in 24.2% of village fisherman chests in groups of 1–3.‌[Java Edition only]

Usage[edit]

Using a full water bucket on a solid block places a water source block against that block, emptying the bucket. In the Nether, however, the water evaporates and nothing gets placed.

A dispenser can be loaded with a water bucket, and when activated it places a water block directly before it, emptying the bucket. A dispenser loaded with an empty bucket and a water source right in front of it draws the source into the bucket when activated.

A single water bucket can fill a cauldron, and using an empty bucket on a water-filled cauldron fills the bucket. Empty buckets cannot be filled from partly-filled cauldrons.

Water buckets can be used on a fish to create a bucket of fish.
