About Used 55 Gallon Drums
If you have a vegetable garden or flower bed, then you know how strenuous it is to haul enough water to the growing plants. Keeping a few used 55 gallon drums with dual-outlets is an inexpensive and convenient way to keep water nearby at all times. Having drums onsite frees you from carrying heavy buckets, and the dual outlets provide a way to pump water into and out of the barrel easily. A BPA-free drum is great for storing emergency water rations. In the open-top configuration, it works well for food storage. Metal drums, such as those made of steel, are often used as storage containers for transporting liquids and chemicals. If you already have drums, then certain accessories, such as screw-on lids, snap rings, and plugs, may come in handy. Consider getting a drum dolly, which makes moving filled drums a breeze. There are many sellers on eBay who offer drums of varying sizes for both food and non-food purposes such as agitator, fermentation, composting, and hydroponics. Since many used 55 gallon drums are heavy, sellers may offer local pick-up options.
