Q:HDX mixing bucket, are they solvent and oil resistant?
by|Apr 21, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  They are number 2 in triangle at bottom same as orange buckets signifies food grade. If the orange buckets are solvent and oil resistant, then, these are as well. I have used the orange ones for mostly latex based paints.

A:  Hello Michael, the buckets are solvent and oil resistant, but are not recommended for long-term storage. As with any chemical storage, check the manufacturer's instructions for storage. Certain chemicals could react with plastic and are better stored in a metal or specific container.

    Q:why wouldn't this bucket be considered food safe when it's made from 70 mil HDPE #2 plastic? appears to be the same specs as do some of the other cheaper buckets Home Depot has. Is it just to charge more money because it says food safe?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello ItsLater - not all HDPE is created equal. In order to be food safe, you need pure resin. Our buckets that are not advertised as food safe may include some recycled material, so we cannot advertise them as food safe. Segregating the resin means manufacturing costs are higher. It is also economies of scale: Home Depot buys many more Home Depot branded items, so their costs are lower for those items which translates to lower retail prices for the Home Depot and HDX brands.

        Q:Is this bucket semi-see through?
        by|Apr 4, 2022

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Lcubed, Yes, semi-see through is a good description. I'm not sure how visible a mouse lying on the bottom, especially from a distance, would be. If it is near one side you could probably tell something is inside. If it is in the middle, I'm not sure. It might depend on the lighting. You may have to test it by putting something solid in the bucket.

          A:  It is semi-transparent. You would be able to see movement inside the bucket.

            Q:where is the 5 gal line

            Answer This Question

            A:  You'll reach five gallons at about the third ring from the top lip. Note that that is an approximate measure.

              A:  The top line is 3.5 gallons. Higher than that, they designate the ribs on the rim of the bucket above as being 4-5 gallon marks - not precise.

                A:  It says on the pail that 5 gallons is the third rib down from the top of the pail. Hope that helps!

                  Good clear bucket
                  Same good bucket in Clear. The only complaint would be there’s not a matching lid. I bought it to hold extra salt pellets for my water softener.

                  It’s always good to have a clean five when you’re starting a paint job project. I also recommend you get a 5 gallon strainer. it’s always good to strain your paint to get the trash out of it, Especially if you’re going to use a spray rig.

                  This product is ridiculously overpriced. Sadly needed to buy in a pinch, but Home Depot should be ashamed to rip off their customers this way.

                  I always like your big, white buckets! But so do my painters and handymen who seem to "make them disappear" when they are done. Hmmm
