Customer Questions & Answers

Do you have lids with the 5 gallon pails?

Asked by: Bob
Yes they have lids for them. Some of the stacks I've seen in the store don't have the lids with them, but there should be some in the store.

does the lid have a small opening?

do the lids have a small opening in the lid so that the pick up tube of a sprayer can be inserted and a screw on cap to close the small opening?

No the lid is solid.

Can I use this for storing BBQ Wood Pellets

Thinking about using these buckets to store various flavors of wood pellets for Pellet Smoker. Any ideas on whether that might be a suitable use or not?

Can I grow veggies plants in it?

Asked by: sara
Yes. Drill some small holes in the bottom before filling with soil for drainage and you are good to go. With the handle the way it is, you can move your plants anywhere.

BPA Free?

I know these buckets are not for food storage, but I still want to know if they are BPA free since I was thinking about storing my bulk laundry powder in the bucket.
Asked by: IDMM
The bucket is made of HDPE, which some may infer is BPA free. The only supposedly reliable way of knowing is to obtain a manufacturer's statement regarding the material(s) and manufacturing method(s) used.

WEIGHT

HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN THIS BUCKET SUPPORT?
Asked by: SPARTAN1989
One of the reviewers mentioned hauling about 50lbs of rocks at a time in one of these buckets. They gave it a favorible review, so they must hold up well with at least that much weight.

5-gal. Homer Bucket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This thing is amazing! It'll carry tools, catch or hold liquids and it can even be turned upside down and used as a seat (I recommend emptying it before turning it over unless you have the lid on tight}.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all-around bucket This is a good and cheap bucket. Every DIYer should have at least two. I use it for demolition trash, cleaning, a step stool, etc. No cracking or wearing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There once was a man from Nantucket... In the words of Homer Simpson, "Mmmmmmm bucket." I love these buckets - inexpensive and durable. Wish they came with lids, but lids can be purchased separately. I use these buckets for weeding, carrying tools, and storing stuff (cement, sand, potting soil, salt for the driveway). I even built a dust collection system that fronts the shop vac in the workshop (I got the idea from Youtube -- the bucket prevents fine dust from clogging the shop vac filter and protects the motor). There once was a man from Nantucket, who liked to make things with a bucket. He watched things on youtube and discovered a proposal. It made him a dust-suck-disposal. ...not my best work, but you get it. Great bucket!

I use mine for everything from mixing small amounts of concrete, to putting my different small pieces of exotic woods in, to putting over the exhaust of my small tractor. I carry dirt from place to place and water for my plants. The only thing this doesn't stand up to very long is the Texas sun. It will become brittle after a couple months. Still cheap enough to use that way and then purchase another.

This 5 gallon bucket is perfect for carrying tools around the house and outside for repair jobs. I kinda wish the bucket came with a lid. Per my better-half, she told me to buy a second one in case I decided to kick the bucket later on and I didn't want to that with a load of tools in it. I would love to submit the winning photo (we could sure use the money) but I am really not ready to "kick the bucket", yet. Thank God!
