Q:Can I get Lids with these 5 gal plastic pails
by|Oct 27, 2022
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hello Gerry, Our lids are sold separately so you can choose the lid that best suits your needs. Our bucket are a standard size so any 5-gallon lid should fit. We have three types of lids: "Easy-off" pushes on and off much like the lids on a deli container. "Heavy Duty Lids with Gasket" provide a tighter seal and have a tear-tab to remove. "Screw-Top Lid" is a two part design. A ring sits permanently on the lip of the bucket and the middle section screws on and off. You should be able to find something that fits your needs on homedepot.com.

    A:  They do not offer lids with their buckets. However they do sell separate lids that are very strong and durable. You need to pound the lid holder on with a rubber mallet. Then you can screw the lid on which also has a rubber seal on it. Those lids are $10 each or so.

                  Q:Is it food safe?

                  A:  Hello Sergi, No, the orange Homer bucket is not food safe. Currently the only food safe bucket we have at Home Depot (search Item# 300197644) which is a 5-gallon white bucket. If a bucket is food safe, it will appear explicitly on a sticker with the label. Leaktite's food safe buckets have a sticker with a spoon, fork, and knife with the words "Food Grade Container - Safe for Use With Food."

                    A:  I have used the bucket to brine a turkey but I also put the bird in a trash bag first to help keep the mess contained.

                      A:  Hello Patty, all buckets between 4-6 gallons sold in the USA require a Child Safety Warning label to be printed on the bucket. The label is permanent and cannot be removed.

                        A:  If the lettering is screen printed, you can try using nail polish remover and a cotton ball to apply and gradually rub off the print. A rubber eraser wheel and a low speed drill may work as well, but overheating the wheel by running it too long and fast in the same spot may warp or damage the bucket. If surface scuffing is not going to affect your project, a fine grit sand paper will also work.

                          A:  The labels on my Home Depot buckets are painted on - they're not stickers - and I don't think there's any way to remove them..

                            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.

                              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!!!!

                                    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!

                                      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.
