I have this staged in my basement but have not filled with water as of yet. Appears to be well made and durable.

Nice to have a storage vessel in the event I need to store water. Purchased additional accessories; (a) Barrel Buddies II bung wrench (b) Camco 22823 Premium Drinking Water Hose (5/8″ID x 10′) (c) 4-3.5 gallon water bricks w/spigot (d) Terapump barrell hand pump.

I constructed a wood pallet to keep the barrel and accessories off of the concrete floor. I also installed a valve and hose connection to the house cold water supply with in reach of the drinking water hose for convenient filling…just in case.

It performs as described, but much better tasting water than expected. I’ve used some other food grade plastics with “less than desirable” results. Love the simplicity.

I got this water barrel for an emergency supply of water. I liked the quality so much I bought a second one. I store them both in my garage.

These barrels are easy to fill or empty (I replace the water in my emergency water barrels once per year) using a garden hose. These barrels are of very high quality construction.

I am very pleased with this purchase and would have no qualms recommending these barrels to friends and family.

Inside was spotlessly clean and arrived in large box that my kids could repurpose into miniature house.

If you have a well or even city water, this is ideal to store water in. It is “food grade,” plastic and with a stabilizer added it should remain good potable water much longer than the 5 years they say. We’ve had potable water good now for over 10 years, but I change it out then by using the older water in my wife’s garden, after allowing it to be open and oxidize the preservative. (Oh yes, you don’t have to buy the expensive stabilizers, you can store water and keep it safe by just adding a couple of teaspoons, of chlorine bleach to the 55 gallon barrel. Works well, and to get rid of the bleach flavor, boil it or just let it set overnight in the fridge. Course, us old military types don’t mind the flavor as we have drank it in the boonies for years.) One excellent suggestion a lady made here is to utilize the water you waste when you wait for the hot water to wash dishes in. It takes only about 3 to 4 months and you’ll have 55 gallons of good potable water stored. These food grade barrels are expensive; however, for peace of mind to have water when none is available, this is a great idea. Amazon has the best prices I’ve found for these storage barrels yet, at least in our area of the Midwest. Good luck and here’s hoping that you are beginning to take seriously the idea of survival when utilities go out, no matter where you live. ColGilly

Great Barrel, good price. Clean, fast service and perfectly suited for its intended use of storing water. I’ve seen these offered at a much higher price elsewhere.
