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 will not fill a 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 will be filled when the smelting process is complete, 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 will place a water source block against that block, emptying the bucket. In the Nether, however, the water will evaporate and nothing will be placed.

A dispenser can be loaded with a water bucket, and when activated it will place 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 will suck the source into the bucket when activated.

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

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

Data values[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, buckets use data value to determine contents. Once used, each data value is set to 0 (Empty Bucket). If no data value is provided, data value is 0.
