I just extracted 1 super and was letting the honey sit in the bottling bucket for a few days to let air bubbles come out of honey.
I bought the bottling bucket with 1 1/2" honey gate from Mann Lake last season.
It is leaking at the gate and at where it mounts to the bucket. I tried tightening the gate with the screw but it still leaks.
I called them and they said the bucket is not for storage and leaking is not unusual.
Does that sound right?
I have not seen this issue with a Dadant honey gate.
