PSA - 5 Gallon Buckets - Flip them over


Recommended Posts

Good advice Jack, 2 points that I never thought off. Now that I think of it, even small dogs getting over the edge for a drink and not being able to back out.

That a good reminder, GeoJack.  There's not much else that can ruin a bunch of lives more thoroughly than losing a child to an incident so easily preventable as tipping water out of a bucket. 

Not as important, but still worth thinking about, is that slick-sided containers of water are hazardous to other critters, too.  I had some young fellows working on my Missouri place last year, and found a dead tarantula in a bucket of water they'd left behind my shop.  The spider probably had dropped in for a drink and then wasn't able to climb back out.

... or require new buckets to be manufactured with a minimum number of 1/2" drainage holes in the bottom, and forbid grandfathering of older buckets unless retrofitted with specified holes, followed by a 10-year governor's commission onsite feasibility study to determine suitability of drilled or punched, round or square, holes for the prevention of long-term water retention.  In the end, the commission will recommend sponges (farmed, not wild harvested) as the preferred method for transporting and storing water at mineral development work sites.

Good advise and you also save bees by convincing the ever diligent public servants from spraying some unknown, but safe :2mo5pow: chemical all over the place. Kills way more than mosquitoes, but hey who's counting?
