I guess I'm lucky. I switch my buckets between food duty and water duty. When they start to look nasty, I dump the water and replace the water bucket with a food bucket. I then let the Arizona sun bake any scuzzy stuff in the former water bucket. If I rotate them thru about 1/week, maybe 2 weeks, the gunk doesn't build up before the sun destroys it.
If it does get too nasty, I turn it into Cowboy's food bucket. He's a BLM mustang who may have been crossed with a goat. That would explain both his size and his eating habits...and the fortitude of his tummy!
