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.
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.
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: I have but use a liner like a 15 gallon plastic bag
A: Yes, water, beer, sand, gravel or peanut butter
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.
A: Yes you can. But I wouldn’t recommend drinking water.
