Aylett, VA 10-frame double deep Langstroth
$10 per pail with lid for the 90 mil thickness does not seem bad to me. Darn sight better than having $600 worth of honey running all over the floor.
If it's the seal that is failing then they do sell seals to replace them. If it's the bucket, I do not know why they are failing.I am finding that 5 gallon buckets used to store honey are only lasting me a couple of seasons. I buy them primarily from box stores (Lowes/Home Depot) and from Tractor Supply. The upper lips seem too thin and will crack after a few lids have been malleted on and pried off for a few seasons.
I am looking for a heavy duty bucket (Manufacturer and Retailer) that will endure a beating. Does anyone have any suggestions or sources? Thank you.
