Repairing plastic liner in drum.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I just picked up a couple of mint open top drums for storing this years honey in, problem is one of them has a little nick in the plastic liner and there is rust sbowing under the nick. Is it possible to repair it to a food grade? Thanks!

Use the drum as a fire, get new drum for honey, you do all the hard work to get a wonderful clean crop of honey and then go and put it in a #### drum, then get pissed off because packer wont buy your good honey, and forever after blame packers on all your beekeeping woes.

It is for storing honey that is for personal use/site honey/gatesales/fermtation so the chances of it being rejected by a packer are rather low.

I assume he was trying to remind me why he was on my ignore list.

Didn't know I was. And I don't care if I am. No, I'm just trying to stay off here a bit more.

no, chuck it.

if its rusted its been split for a while and even if you spot fix it the rust will continue and split it open.

the only real way to repair is to send it to a drum company that recons drums. they should be able to grind that bit out and respray the whole drum. i suspect that would cost about the price of a new drum, plus cartage there and back.
