I had the smaller version....maybe 2 liter...can't remember. It had a slow leak at the seam around the bottom...probably a fluke.
I should get that 5L.
It looks like the Amazon reviews are saying similar things. Probably hit-or-miss as far as manufacturing. You could glue it up as one person suggested but for the price, and the fact it is meant to hold water, I would hope that it wouldn't leak.

Indeed they are...hmm.
Guess it is more than a fluke then.... not sure if I still have mine or not.

I worked at the DRAMM plant... BOTH the manufacturing plant.. as well as the... processing plant. ;)

My father was their engineer for like 15 years.. The only differences are going to be the qualities of materials available at that time, and differences in who DRAMM has DO the “external work”... about 5-7 years ago.. the qualities of plastics available, at least to DRAMM, where spotty.. and inconsistent.. they USED to outsource for larger plastic mould work.... but I believe they have it within the US now.. maybe Canada.

for a long time i assume anything made of plastic is outsourced. even Plano tackle boxes out of TX? maybe not.
dont know how any of them hang on

I've been to Manitowoc twice....back when they had the full assembly line there. Now they only use the factory for their training room.
Lots of bars around there....

Yeah! Guess THAT’S where all the ice goes!

My town has 3,600 people(ish).. aaaand has 9(depending on your definition) bars.. PLUS a brewery AAAAND a Winery... separate places.. and the Winery actually has a brewery.

During Tourist season.. open intoxicant laws are COMPLETELY overlooked.. people often have “prices” listed on coolers that they walk around with...

And this is a small little place.. equidistant between Sturgeon and Green bay.. 20(ish) “Country/drivin’” miles to either one. So 22 minutes at most. 🤓

I use the Dramm 5L everyday. Ive got the exact can Hinmo pictured. I personally love it. Still in as good a shape as the day i bought it. I water all of my trees by hand twice a day at the moment. I fill a 5 gal bucket then fill the dramm with that. It takes 3 - 5 gal buckets to water all of my trees. Maybe 10-15 minutes.

In regards to the berries. I had 3 juniper produce a good amount of berries this spring so i researched a bit. I can’t get an conclusive answer on wether i should remove them or not. Many say that not removing them takes energy from the plants growth and to pick them off. So i did and I can’t say it was good or bad for the tree.
