Galvanized Tubs: Frequently Asked
Tub beverage capacity is the maximum amount of standing bottles (flat
on the tub's bottom). With peanuts or ice (and placing the drinks
more randomly) you'll have room for more than the number of "standing
bottles," especially in the larger sizes. Use beverage holding
capacities as baseline numbers.
Two size bottles were selected to illustrate bucket size. The smaller
blue bottle (12.7 ounces) demonstrates a regular size beverage. The
larger blue bottle (26 ounces) represents a standard wine bottle.
If the container was not designed to hold water it will state this
in the product’s information. Some metal buckets and tubs feature
clear plastic liners that hold water, which is also stated on our
product pages. If the bucket has been “sealed” to ensure
watertightness, it holds water. Most of our other metal buckets do
hold water, but are not guaranteed to do so throughout their very
long lifetime, as damage to these buckets first disrupts the zinc
coating giving it the ability to hold water.
The condition or symptom of hot dipped galvanized metal being exposed
to weathering elements is known as white rust. White rust happens
in instances when a galvanized container is left outside, or is
stored in a closely packed, damp or poorly ventilated manner. White
rust is a normal characteristic of aged galvanized metal representative
of their environment.
Under normal conditions the zinc surface will react with the surrounding
air forming a thin, hard protective layer, known as “white
rust”. Whenever white rust is found on galvanized materials,
it usually is not found is a significant amount to dangerous to
the zinc coating. White rust appears with time and weathering but
if the galvanized coating is damaged, it can be problematic. Damage
to the zinc coating is unlikely, even when outside in temperate
regions, throughout the bucket’s or tub’s lifetime.
White rust does not indicate one should worry about the zinc coating
or the lifespan of your galvanized metal bucket or tub. If the product
has a black color, the zinc coating has been compromised one should
consider replacing the product, or have the item re-galvanized.
You can avoid damaging white rust by storing your galvanized bucket
or tub or trough to ensure the surface receives adequate airflow,
can’t retain water and can dry properly (if water may be present).
All of our galvanized buckets are available in single, case pack,
wholesale and pallet quantities. Call our friendly customer service
in Virginia for information and pricing on wholesale and pallet quantities.
Galvanized Metal Planters - Galvanized tubs make tough, long-lasting
planters. Large planters make a big impact with little comparative
work. Turn inexpensive galvanized metal tubs into planters by drilling
several holes in the bottom and putting a layer of gravel before adding
your soil and plants. As long as your tub or trough is hot-dipped
galvanized (with a spangled pattern) the zinc will cover exposed steel
and your holes won’t rust. Otherwise, seal out corrosion with
adding a thin coat of clear or silver nail polish. Rocks and gravel
provide better drainage than just soil.
