How Much Glue Left in Drum?
From contributor Y:
In the meantime, when you first get the drum, fill up a five gallon bucket. At least you will have an emergency reserve if you run out.
From contributor D:
You can buy clear polyethylene drums for that purpose. Google "clear plastic drums" and you should be able to find several options. One company is Containers Unlimited.
From contributor S:
I wonder if the glue would allow you to use a clear indicator tube plumbed to the drum like on the old commercial coffee pots. I am assuming that you are using the drum on its side?
From contributor L:
We couldn't beat this problem, so we just always keep a second drum on hand and order a new one when one runs out. Put a tag on it that the employee brings to the office when he changes drums.
From contributor J:
Don't know your usage or the shelf life of your glue, but we found a price break and freight balance on three drums at once. When you get to the last drum, buy the next three, but we use about 4 drums a month, so I don't know if the shelf life would allow for you to do that or not.
From contributor A:
Contributor B hit the nail on the head! Weigh full and empty. Nothing easier than that. Almost nothing cheaper.
