Q:Will the plastic leach into my plants soil when it is stored in it? Do I need to pay more and get the food safe one?
by|Jan 26, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Colleen, This is such a difficult question because we have no hard data on using the orange buckets for planting. People have used non-food buckets for planting for years, but I could find no definitive studies on the leaching of plastic or dyes. To be sure, using a food-safe bucket is probably your best bet. All of our buckets are free of BPA and PFAS.

    Q:How many pounds of dry dog food fit in bucket

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Will, I'm not really sure. Looking at a bucket, I don't think one of those big bags would fit but a smaller one might. They are about 14' tall and 13" in diameter. They are rated for 60 lbs so, unless your food is really dense, I think you could fill it with food.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Bonzo, We do not carry a manufacturer's warranty on the buckets. I would suggest going to the store from where you purchased it and request replacement.

        Q:Can I store flour, sugar & rice in these buckets?
        by|Jan 17, 2023

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Bonnie, The orange Homer Buckets are not considered food safe. You may be more comfortable putting the grains in a Mylar bag before using the orange buckets for food storage. We also sell a food-safe bucket at Home Depot (search part# 300197644). They are explicitly marked as food safe with a red/black/white sticker. For a lid, we supply Home Depot with one food-safe screw-top lid (search part# 266050).

            The "Homer Bucket" has deteriorated to such low quality that the only thing that distinguish itself as a bucket is the fact that it doesn't have a hole in it!

            I'm a sucker for the orange HD buckets. I almost buy one every time I use one in the store. There is more uses for a five gallon bucket than anything could even think of. The main thing for me it keeps the parts for my plumbing projects together. The last one I bought was for 600aa battery's. Broken bags and lost parts are eliminated. You can never have to many Home Depot buckets.

            Utility Bucket, Great for Paint
            Used this bucket with 5 gallon filter and lid for a recent home exterior paint project. High quality and lid fit well. Wish they were cheaper but $5 isn't so bad for what you get. Handle could be a little more robust but held find even when completely full with 5 gallons of paint.

              Excellent bucket! High-quality!
              This bucket is superb, such high-quality. I use them very often and they are very durable and sturdy. I definitely recommend buying these in 6-packs, you can’t go wrong! I have been using 1 certain bucket for about 4 years, and it still works great!!!!

                    A great bucket, perfect for any task you throw at it. The Homer Bucket color may fade after a few years, but they still hold up very well.
