I would not recommend storing acetone in plastic. Acetone can migrate through thin polyethylene which is what this bucket is made of.

Hello William, sorry for the delay. There is no fill line on our 5 gallon buckets. You will reach the 5-gallon capacity a bit below the rim. Five gallons will not overflow.

Worlds Best Bucket
I went with this bucket because of the great reviews. I was not disappointed. These bucket does all it's supposed to do and more. It's the most awesome buckets in the world. I call it my magic bucket because with it I can move five gallons of water from one place to another and such much more. Truly a miracle of science. I also collect buckets and this bucket was the perfect addition to my collection. It really adds beauty to my showroom (or shed) You must get this bucket. It is a must have for any collector or fan. The buckets are extremely sturdy, allowing 2-6 heavy buckets stacked on the bottom one. Great value on a very sturdy work bucket. I have several for cleaning and carrying tools on home projects. The buckets are perfect; no leaks, no cracks, even when lifting it by the raised rim alone!

Bottoms crack
I have bought 10 of these over the last 2 years. All but 2 have developed large cracks in the bottom. The cracks make them unusable for water. Another example where products have got so cheap they become crap.

Great bucket
These buckets are made very well. I have a couple of them in my garage. I use them at least once a week for something. I've had these buckets for over 7 years now and they have no sign of stress. The handle is easy to hold onto and it seems durable and hasn't fallen off. This bucket meets my expectations and there isn't anything that I dislike about it.

We've been using these buckets for years for our plants. Started out with 15, now have 57 buckets. This year we have a mix of pepper plants and leaf lettuce. We've also done eggplant and tomatoes in the past. I drill 3 9/16" holes in bottom and make 3 cuts in bottom edge for drainage. Put 2-3 inches of peat in bottom and fill with enriched soil.
