Our plastic barrels or drums are sometimes referred to as water barrels. We sell open head barrels where the top comes completely off the body of the barrel and is held on with a lever locking ring. We also sell closed head or tight head barrels where the lid is not removable and there are plugs or bungs in the top of the drum. Our high density polyethylene drums are food grade and can hold more than just water. All of the barrels on this page have a UN rating and may be used for hazardous product. Compatibility of the product with the packaging is the responsibility of the shipper. The UN performance rating does not imply compatibility of your product with the packaging. If you need a

These covers are still fully removable but have bungs similar to our tight head drums. There is a picture below that shows our 30 gallon open head drum with a cover with fittings.
