Just a quick comparison between Gamma Lid ($7) vs Food Grade ($5) and Easy Soft ($2) lids for 5 Gallon Pet Food Storage ideas. I just got a some Gamma lids ( https://amzn.to/2C1uDOF ) to replace one of my older Soft 5 Gallon Lids ( https://amzn.to/2SG1Vdo ) and my food grade 5 gallon lids with spouts ( https://amzn.to/2SzNBTn ) .
Overall I like the convenience of the $2 flexible lids over the Gamma and Food grade lids for pet food as it is easy to open to feed the animals. They may only last about 2 years and may not be as durable as the other lids, but they are very easy to handle daily.
The Gamma lids are awesome and are air tight for pet food. The minor issue would be the chance of over tightening the screw top, making it difficult to open. It is a lower price alternative than a dedicated pet food bin with Gamma lids which range from $25- $40 dollars : https://amzn.to/2LTTmJo . With the Gamma lids I don’t see how these are removable after installing on a 5 gallon bucket. I fear using a bucket tool ( https://amzn.to/2Rto94X ) may break the thin lid walls during removal.
The food grade commercial lids with spouts that came with my food grade buckets ( https://amzn.to/2SzNBTn ) . Need a bucket lid tool ( https://amzn.to/2Rto94X ) to open every time. IT is pretty easy to open with the tool, maybe easier to open than the Gamma lids, however you need the tool to open it. For long term food storage I would use the food grade bucket lids which are air tight and extremely strong. Closing the snap on lids require a mallet or the lid tool to hammer seal the lids.
I heard many different reviews about Flex Seal and how effective it is some are positive and some are not as positive. Overall its basically rubber spray.
