Answer This Question

A:  Hello John, We have the maximum recommended lifting weight as 84 lbs. Depending on the conditions the bucket is kept in, that could decrease with the age of the pail.

      Q:Is your 5 gallon orange Homer bucket food safe?
      by|Jun 7, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Krista - No, we do not consider the the orange Homer bucket to be food safe. We cannot guarantee that virgin resin was used and we do not have any data on the orange colorant. Currently the only food safe bucket we have at Home Depot (search Item# 300197644) 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."

        Q:The last time I purchased these buckets, the lid came with it at no additional cost. From reading the specs it says nothing is included. So does this mean that the lid no longer comes with it at no additional cost?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello CCCC - I wonder if that was a store promotion. We have always sold our lids separately because there are different style lids you can choose from. We have three types of lids: "Easy-off" (search #723222) pushes on and off much like the lids on a deli container. "Heavy Duty Lids with Gasket" (#529776) provide a tighter seal and has a tear-tab to remove. "Screw-Top Lid" (#266050) is a two part design. A ring sits permanently on the lip of the bucket and the middle section screws on and off.

          I use these buckets to plant melons in. I punch hole near bottom for drainage. Very inexpensive.

          Never ever buy homer buckets
          Not sure when the quality of these buckets took a nose dive, used to be a solid product. Purchased 21 homer buckets to handle ore samples, left me with nothing but regret. Out of the 21 buckets, only 11 will still hold water, the rest have cracked at the bottom. Nearly a 50% failure rate, unreal. If you think you're saving money by getting homer buckets, think again. Find buckets elsewhere, that's all I can say.

            It was orange. It matched my orange bucket lid. That matched my orange reloading equipment. I like orange.

              Southern Sweeps and Hearthstonesupply uses these buckets daily hauling small stones and rocks up and down scaffolding to get the job done. They work great.

              Bottom cracked open in three places
              I bought this years ago to store some rice in. I never got around to doing it as the survivalist interest passed for me. One day I picked it up and there was three wide gaps in the bottom like the plastic shrunk and separated. It was kept inside the house and never used. I'm sure glad I didn't use it for food storage.
