Those 5 gallon buckets sure are handy. But the first thing that usually breaks on them is the plastic handle. Without that you are effectively carrying around 40 lbs of water while hanging onto a knife blade.

I had a bunch of 1/2" irrigation tubing around. I cut it six inches long. Then cut that piece lengthwise. Pry the piece open and wrap around the wire handle. Let it wrap around itself, and voila, you have a new bucket handle.

I've heard of using sections of old hose but not about using the irrigation tubing. I have a lot of 1/2" tubing. Thanks, Mark.

I use gas line hose and secure on with electrical tape. I once made a couple of 4" spools out of 1 1/2" dowel material and used them for awhile. I didn't secure them to any buckets but used them mostly when I was setting up the garden in the spring. Used and abused garden hose, I use at the top of 2" x 4" welded wire fencing that I create columns for the top of buckets to allow cucumber vines to grow up and over and then able to let the fruit hang without damaging the fruit in a spacing saving vertical gardening effort.
