1st you ask "Can I wink at this requirement?".
Then you said "I want to do it right." Which is it? LOL
My best advice is do it right and you never have to worry. And once a HD finds out your trying to skirt the rules they'll be watching you like a hawk.
Now another subject Are you doing shaved ice or snow cones? I just bought this unit and in fact haven't even tried it yet. What brand are you using and what company are you getting your syrups from?
