Q:the lid i purchased with this bucket does not fit on the bucket, which lid do i need so it fits tight on the bucket
by|Jul 23, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Dear Bucket: I'm not sure which lid you purchased but 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 have 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. The gasket lid and screw-top lid will provide the tightest fit. Once the tear tab is pulled from the gasket lid, however, it will be less tight. The screw-top lid is the best bet if you want to cap and uncap repeatedly. It depends on how you use the bucket.

    A:  Hi David, Unfortunately "Homer" has been retired by Home Depot. Both their 5-gallon and 2-gallon bucket decorations have been replaced by with the Home Depot logo. I kind of miss Homer too.

      Q:Although not considered safe for direct food storage - are these pails considered safe for growing crops utilizing dirt in the pail, crops like tomatos, cucumbers, and the like?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Rookie: Many people do use them for planting, I see them everywhere. We do not consider them food-safe because we cannot guarantee we didn't use reground resin in producing them (although we do that very rarely) and we have no data on whether the colorant can leech into the bucket's contents. We leave it to the consumer to decide if they are comfortable using them. If you do, it is suggested that you drill or puncture some holes on the bottom for drainage. Many people put small stones on the bottom, before the soil, so the drain holes do not become clogged. This will help your plants from getting waterlogged. Good luck!

        Q:Can this bucket with stand hot coffee to store .

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Angel, our buckets are made of HDPE and can sustain short periods up to up to 230°F (110°C) although the walls will become somewhat flexible. However, the orange Home Depot buckets are not considered foo-safe. We don't guarantee that there is not reground material in them nor do we have any data on the orange dye. We sell a white food-safe bucket (search #300197644) that may be a better bet for what you are using it for.

          Thin, cheap plastic
          I bought 5 of these buckets. 3 of them has had the handles pull out of the bucket after filling them with 5 gallons of water. Find a painter that has some spare used buckets. They're bound to be better than Home Depot's buckets.

            Never buying Home Depot Bucket again
            Home Depot used to have solid buckets years ago. Perhaps that is why the reviews of these buckets are still so high. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME BUCKETS. I still have some of the older buckets. They were made of thicker material and never had problems with them unless putting something like mixed concrete in them. Picture is of a brand new bucket with some damp activated charcoal I was drying out with a loose fitting lid. Not they heavy. Moving the bucket, the metal pulled right. Cheap.

              Buckets are great. Shipping was on the last day promised. They sat in DC which could have walked them quicker.

              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.
