I'm in the market for a water heater that I can heat a bucket of water with. Any suggestions? Thank you.

A bucket heater.

Though to be honest, I don't know why someone would only want to heat a bucket of water. You aren't going to clean much carpet with it. They have a limited amount of power, and are not designed to be used with carpet cleaning.

IMO, as someone who used to clean carpets with a porty, you might as well forget about heat (real heat) until you get a truck mount. I made due with hot tap water, and understood my limitations.

A bucket heater, will get to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Works faster if you start with hot tap water.
I have also found that if you have a portable with heat that if you have problems with breakers if you take a short hose connected to the pressure outlet and run it back to the solution tank and then let it run. This will heal the water with the vac motors off. Then you can cut off your heater while you're cleaning.

Use hot tap water to pre spray and pre scrub the carpet
