How will they hold up to the Sun if kept outside

Asked by Jim December 30, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Jim - Thank you for reaching out. While it depends on the length of time in the sun as well as the heat of the sun, people have had a lot of success in keeping the bins outside.

Can this be used for planting food in?

Answers

Yes, I grew potatoes in mine. You need to drill holes in the bottom for drainage. Will last about 2 years out in the sun. Rope handles are useless once filled with dirt.

What are the inside dimensions of this tub.

Asked by spyder February 3, 2019

Answers

The bottom diameter is 17”. The top diameter is 19”. And the depth is 16.5”.

Do these buckets come in black?

Hi there! We have a similar item in black. It is 17 Gallons, unlike the blue tub that is 18 gallons, and is sold in a pack of 2. https://www.homedepot.com/p/HOMZ-17-Gal-Rope-Handle-Tub-in-Black-2-Pack-0417BKECOM-02/300609774 I hope this helps!

Is this the correct size for a 1/2 barrel keg? I'm looking to buy them for my wedding.

Asked by sonja April 26, 2017

I would purchase a larger size.

What is the tub made of specifically? I need to know if this particular plastic used is food safe.

Asked by Jess January 2, 2017

Answers

I don't know if it's food safe. I wouldn't use it for food that's not wrapped in some way. No contact with the container.

Between summertime coming and Quarantined life in 2020, HOMZ 18 gal. Rope Handle Tub Storage Tote in Blue (2-Pack) have become a big necessity in our house! They are perfect for balls and toys and easy enough for my 3-year-old to drag out of the garage. They shipped fine, nothing cracked, and so far holding up well. Worth the price if you find toys have taken over your house.

These tub totes are a great size for hauling light-weight materials around, but I’d be concerned about using them for liquid or heavier weighted materials. I say this because of the way the plastic rope handles are “secured” to the tub. At the ends of the nylon ropes are singed/melted flat, supposedly keeping them from slipping through the handle holes (see pictures). Given enough weight, the flattened ends could slip through, spilling the contents. I’ve considered re-singeing the ends to make them broader, but I’ve decided to use them as delivered, then fix it if such should happen. Each tub only weighs about 4 lbs. Despite the (easy-to-fix) potential handle flaw, I really like these tubs. Pictures show the tub size relative to 1 gallon jug and 5 gallon bucket.

At what size does a bucket cease to be a bucket and qualify for "tote" status? If it was bigger still, would it cease to be a tote and become a bin, or a vat? They call this, HOMZ 18 gal. Rope Handle Tub Storage Tote in Blue (2-Pack), OK, Homz, I call it a big bucket. These buckets come in a set of 2 and I think they are a great value. We buy these utilitarian plastic bins for our use at home and work and when you leave them outside, UV exposure takes a toll on them,they become crispy and crumble in our hands. I have only been introduced to HOMZ in the last 6 months. Time will tell how well HOMZ handles UV radiation (Ultraviolet light a type of electromagnetic radiation degrades whatever it touches. The high-frequency waves can even damage living tissue.). In the meantime, I have liked every HOMZ product I've seen. I am watching. Time will tell if their product stands up to the ravages of UV. I have a HOMZ "tote" similar to this one in the color green. I included a picture, I'm preparing to plant a tree in the green one. I love that the company's name, as well as Made in USA is molded into the bottom of the green totes. That's missing on the blue totes. They did put a Made in USA sticker on these green totes.It lacks the cachet of the permanent, molded in plastic,"Made in USA". So in the end, these are still a great product that you will find a million and one uses for. It's kind of cool that Homz products are made in Chicago. Buy these and support a great American city.

Rated for 50 pounds of “stuff”, these tubs offer a quick way to gather up various items (children’s toys, laundry, rope coils) for storage or transport. Depending upon what one puts in them (they come as a set of two tubs which nest together when empty for storage), you may or may not be able to use the entire volume of the tubs; for example if filling with water (perhaps for a foot cleaning station prior to using a swimming pool), filling to a third of the volume will max out the weight capacity. While the tubs themselves appear to be rather robust, the attachment of the rope handles (by only heat swaging the ends of the ropes) will be the limiting factor. There is sufficient rim area to grab the tub, even if the rope handles pull out allowing continued use of the tubs. For their intended (light duty) use, these will be a handy pair to have around the home (or garage, or boat or ??).

We have a tub similar to this one that we have used for years. They work real well from watering animals to hauling gear for a trip. This tote is good and I would have given it five stars except the handles, that are made from rope, don't have a knot in them to keep them from pulling through the hole in the rim of the tote. The rope has some what of a knot melted into it, but I'm afraid that if you get the tote very heavy they will pull right through the holes. Other than that, a good product.

I really like these big tubs for projects around the house. I use them by putting in a bag of dry powered mortar mix to keep the dust from getting on the floor in the shop. I will then put a second bucket right side up on top to keep moisture from getting into the dry mortar mix while I am mixing the wet mortar in another container. I also use this type of tub to cover my electric powered pressure washer at night. I have another tub just like one this that is pink in color and has a different brand name, but it looks like it came out of the same plastic mold. If you buy one, I recommend buying at least two because they are really handy.

I had tried the HOMZ 17-gallon rope handled lime green storage totes and like them, so I got the 2-pack of the blue totes. I used one of the tubs for holding my laundry and the other tub as a decorative planter for my Florida avocado tree. The tubs are great for carrying around items, however, I would not try to carry very heavy items as the plastic is a bit thin, bends and the handles are not attached that securely. I had to be careful when moving the potted trees as they are quite heavy. Other uses I think would be very good are storing toys, gardening, iced beverage cans, plants and/or washing the car.

Nice sturdy 18 gallon tubs. Slick finish that makes clean up a breeze. I used them to mix goat feed before dumping it in their feeder. No crumbs or anything stuck to the tub. Then picked corn and hauled a lot of ears to the house. Rope handles are great. I tried it with my garden tools and it would work, but I like a taller tub to organize them in. I highly recommend this sturdy tub.

HUGE; MANY USES; WELL-DESIGNED; EASY to CARRY — The HOMZ 18 gal. Rope Handle Tub Storage Tote in Blue (2-Pack) is a useful container for storing or carrying items; it is almost 17" high. It has two large rope handles on the top for easy carrying. The top lip provides rigidity to the tub when carrying it. It has a 50 lb. capacity. We are using one of ours to collect weeds as we pull them. It has a greater capacity than any container that we have used before for this purpose which makes it more efficient. The tubs came well-packed. Since they have no warranty, I am not expecting them to last a long time outdoors but probably longer inside. We can think of many uses for our other tub but haven’t yet decided. It is made in the USA.
