I have been reading of folks that are having issues with internal spillage of honey when extracting honey from the flow hive. Keep in mind that if you fit a plastic drain tube over the spout it will slow down the honey flowing through it and the longer the tube the slower it becomes. If you set the hive on the 5 degrees laying towards the back of the hive and still having flooding try removing any tubing and put a jar directly under the spout. Simple but maybe overlooked. Remember any spilled honey you see will certainly have more spilled than you first see !!!
