Here's a link to an album from a guy on Reddit that uses a bucket to "BIAB" along with pumps and other goodies. He also has a home-made auto-sparge system that looks pretty cool. It could give you some other ideas.
FWIW, that guy in the other thread I posted, wobdee, is my father-in-law and I brew with him often. That basket of his is VERY well made and has been through quite a few brews without showing any signs of wear or tear. He also uses that device to push down on the grain hard and there hasn't been any problems.
