Expert Answer:

When quicklime is added to water, it forms slaked lime along with evolution of heat. There will be a rise in temperature of the bucket.
If we add whloe quick lime into water, it will produced a large amount of heat and may be turn into a accident, hence to avoid all these consequences quicklime is added to water slowly.
