Still the best and fastest with the least issues is to let the pump pull it on it's own if you are setting up inside. No leaks ever, put a chem injector on the pump intake and call it good.

I had a idea to put a small pump in a bucket very similar to that. On the other in inside the tank is a magnetic float valve and switch that cut the water on and off as the level drops in the tank. Problem is I would be left with a full tank everytime.
I could turn the water on hot and low pressure and I would be golden.

A number of places have a faucet adapter kit. I've never used anything other than a basic faucet adapter that hooks to the more common faucets that you should be able to buy locally at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. The adapter kit is around 40 to 50 bucks and are carried by Interlink, Jondon, Steambrite, etc. https://interlinksupply.com/index.php?item_num=AX21

It used to be $29 just a while and I thought it was expensive then...

You have a very understanding customers and I don't say it sarcastically. This setup wouldn't work for me, especially in vacant rental properties without power or water. Is that rinse or emulsifier in the bucket?

Looking on Amazon now...lol
I haven't had to buy one in a few years. The last one I bought was at Lowes in the same area where they sell faucet aerators, washers, etc. I did see one on Amazon that looked like it. The one I use fits a lot of faucets except for some of the fancier ones. I think this is the same type I bought at lowes for 6.98. It definitely won't work on some commercial grade faucets. I highly advise getting at least 2 of them and some extra washers if you can find them. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Danco-Chrome-Dual-Standard-Adapter/3647058

That was in a rental house actually. Yes, I added emulsifier to the bucket in addition to regular chemical injection for one room that needed it.

No power or water can be a real handicap for anyone.
