Dutch buckets, also referred to as bato buckets, are a perfect space-saving hydroponics/aquaponics system designed for nearly every species. One of the greatest advantages of growing in dutch buckets is the reservoir at the bottom of the bucket. This serves as a sort of ‘lifeline’ for the plant. Given the power goes out, the reservoir has extra nutrient solution stored to help keep plants alive.

Dutch buckets also make it easy to extend your current system, whereas you can use one drainage line and one watering line for the entire length of your system. The buckets also easily connect to one another - through what really makes Dutch Buckets unique is the ability to hold the growing media as well as the nutrient solution.

Each purchase includes  (1) bucket; (2) elbows; (1) lid; (1) big net pot; and (4) small net pots. All you’ll need to do is set up irrigation. Try our Dutch Buckets and get in on the next great harvest!

Ask a Question
  • What are the dimensions of the Dutch Buckets?


  • What type of plastic are the buckets and components made from?

    The bucket, elbows and net pots are Polypropylene (PP) plastic, #5 recycling symbol.   The white lid is PVC. Good question - we'll update our listing to mention this.  

  • I just got the dutch bucket parts.Do the drain elbows need to be glued in or is a gasket needed?

    No glue or gaskets are needed.  Just snap the pieces together and it should carry the water well.
