Q:How many pounds of dry dog food fit in bucket
by|Jan 24, 2023
1 Answer
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.

    Q:Does the 5 Gal. Homer Bucket have a guarantee? What are the details? The bottom of mine formed a large crack all the way across the base.

    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?

      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).

          A:  Yes, water, beer, sand, gravel or peanut butter

          by|Jan 16, 2023

            A:  Hello Thesponge - You may certainly fill this bucket with water. Please note that the orange Homer bucket is not considered food safe, if you were thinking of using it for drinking water. Food safe buckets are explicitly marked as such. Just because a bucket is rated #2 HDPE, that does not mean it is made from food-grade material.

            by|Jan 16, 2023

              A:  Yes you can. But I wouldn’t recommend drinking water.

                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!!!!
