Looking for water storage barrels? We carry food grade plastic drums in 15, 30 and 55 gallon sizes. In the 15 gallon size, we carry only closed head or tight head drums. The tops on these drums does not come off. They have bungs or plugs and you can use a drum pump to empty the barrel. In the 30 and 55 gallon sizes, we stock both closed head and open head drums. The top on our open head drums is completely removable and is secured to the drum body with a lever locking ring.
These drums can be especially useful in emergency situations. Perhaps you have a well that must be repaired and you know you will be without water for several days. You can fill these drums with water before the repair begins to assure you will have water during the repair process.
We have a low $250 order minimum allowing our smaller customers to purchase drums for personal use. Water storage is just one of the many uses for these drums. All the drums on this page are UN rated which means they can be used for hazardous products also. Since product compatibility with the container is the responsibility of the shipper, please be sure the UN designation is appropriate for your product.
