Your "20 gal. rope handle tubs" in current circular. The circular lists them as 20 gallons - on the tubs it says 19 gallons - my receipt shows 18 gals - and I measured it as 16 gallons. What say you ?
I sent the above to Ace.

Viewing the circular online lists tub as 19 gallons after clicking the single item (tub). Its on page 4 of the online circular. Appearance is rather flimsy plastic that won't stand more than a months worth of sun UV before cracking away.

Interesting - the online version says 19 in my area also - but I have it in print at 20. And there is still the problem of the receipt showing 18 and the actuality of 16. We'll have to see what Ace has to say. You are right about this type plastic not holding up but we do get 2 years or more out of them. We have about 10 set up in various garden areas because much of the time we prefer to water with watering cans which we can fill quickly from the tubs. We do have 1 that has lasted over 10 years but God only knows what another like that would cost now.

Find a UV designed plastic for outdoor purposes. Yes, it costs much more. Last much longer though.
You're unlikely to get an official response from your local Ace Hardware on your question since its owned by a corporation.

I sent it to Ace.com But one of our local Ace hardware stores is owned by a good family and I'm sure they will listen to my complaint.
