Many of you may have seen my Flex Seal Video Review where I sealed the 5 gallon bucket. Well the bucket is still around and going strong.
I have been rebuilding a large log splitter over the past few months and during the course of the project I had to drain the hydraulic fluid from the splitters system. The fist thing I was able to find was my trusty Flex Sealed bucket so I figured I’d give it a try.
I drained about 4 gallons of the hydraulic fluid into the bucket and stuck it in my shed to store until I had the hydraulic system rebuilt. Well as things usually go it was about a month before I got back to working on the splitter and when I did I was very pleased to see that the bucket had held ALL of the fluid without a bit of a leak.
Most of the Flex Seal was totally submerged the entire time. It did not break down or even start to get spongy. To be honest I was a little surprised. The can does say that it will hold up to oils once it has cured but I was not really expecting it to stand up to a month of total submersion with hydraulic oil.
