Questions & Answers

Can I drill drainage holes in bottom and use for planting?

O
Asked by: Kitty
You can, bit is not listed as food grade. SKU #672358 is available in most stores for less than $5 an is rated as food grade. For some strange reason they seem to be stocked in the paint dept.

can I use it for storing food

Rice
Asked by: ceb1
It says in product overview "not for storing food". I think that answers the question. The plastic is food grade but all the paint and logo and possibly orange dye are not.

how much potting soil do I need to fill one bucket?

Asked by: Robbie
A 2 cubic foot bag fills 3 of these to the top. So 1/3 of that or 0.66 a cubic foot.

Are there lids available for this bucket?

Asked by: Homey53
Not at the Seaside CA store. Web site says the closest lid is 85 miles away! I'll just use plywood and a brick for now to keep the squirrels out...

5 Gal. Homer Bucket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 413.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from THE HOME DEPOT ORANGE BUCKET HAS CHANGED: The Home Depot orange bucket's plastic has gotten thinn... THE HOME DEPOT ORANGE BUCKET HAS CHANGED: The Home Depot orange bucket's plastic has gotten thinner from 75mil to the new 70mil (squeeze the buckets, but also see the labeling embossed on the bottom of the bucket saying "75mil" and "70mil"). This is in addition to a price increase of about 50 cents from a year ago. Also, the new buckets do not stack/nest all the way inside the old bucket because the fit is different. I wouldn't have noticed except I saw the new buckets didn't nest inside the old bucket, and the new buckets have extra vertical lip at the handle level compared to the old one, so I gave the new bucket and an old bucket a squeeze to feel any difference, and was surprised to notice just from squeezing that the new bucket had a little more give to it. I checked the bottom for any labeling that might confirm it, and yes, both buckets are labeled 75mil (old) and 70mil (new). Same manufacturer though. I don't know how much of a difference that will make for actual use, but consider that there are other buckets on sale in different colors and without Home Depot branding, for just $1 more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Achilles Heel of this otherwise sturdy bucket is the flimsy 3 1/4 inch white plastic handle. ... The Achilles Heel of this otherwise sturdy bucket is the flimsy 3 1/4 inch white plastic handle. When hauling anything heavy, for example: 5-gallons of water (over 40 lbs); - this brittle, plastic andle does not last very long on its wire frame before cracking and disintegrating.. Unfortunately, Home Depot does not consider these buckets worthy enough to merit a replacement handle. Fortunately, I was able to replace the broken plastic handles with a larger diameter, more comfortable, almost 4 inch length of plastic electrical conduit or rubber,Lawn Sprinkler feeder hose; - by splitting (cutting) the replacement handle length-wise and then forcing it onto the wire frame. Not very pretty, but very practical. Other than keeping the slit (slot) up when carrying the bucket, it is a a quite comfortable replacement.
