Re: Square Icing Buckets From Walmart
Welcome to Beesource!
> Can honey gates be installed without any issues?
The honey gates that I am familiar with all have a pair of flat flanges, to be installed with one on each side of the bucket wall. Since those flanges are flat, they will seal better with a flatter bucket wall (on the "square" bucket) than with the round buckets.
However, the icing buckets that my Walmart offers are smaller than 5 gallons. They are labeled in pounds, but seem to be about 3 gallons. Considering that local stores sell new round buckets for $3-5, you may find that buying a new round bucket for honey processing is a better option, especially considering your filtering issues. Use the free square buckets for storage.
