VERY tough containers. I received a pair today and I am impressed. They are constructed of a heavy duty material, not a soft or thin plastic at all. I will be ordering more immediately after this review. Thanks guys!

I ordered 2 of these. They are heavy duty high quality drums. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to store water. We got the 15 gal ones because they are easier to move, store or tansfer if you need to. Again - I highly recommend these to anyone.

Good Product

After reading the reviews, I ordered 2 of the the 15 gallon combos, in order to have an extra wrench & siphon. However the siphon was backordered & hasn't been shipped yet, so I can only review what I have. I am glad I at least got the wrenches, because without them I'd be unable to open the containers & fill them. I chose the 15 gallon size (125lbs filled) because it seems that it could be moved easier, if necessary, into a vehicle or another part of the house without too much difficulty. At this time they are stored in the garage, inside of the shipping boxes, to prevent them from attracting attention. I'm very happy with them and plan to order more in the future.

Water Barrel-15 Gallon Drum

I purchased the combo and a separate 15 gallon drum just recently. This has worked out really well for me in that this size of water container is large enough and yet small enough to pick up and move. I am planning to purchase several more in the near future. The people in the customer service dept are exceptional in answering questions and providing information about any of the products that they sell. A wonderful experience and will buy from them again.

15 Gallon Drum best for handeling.

I ordered 8 of the 15 gal. drums, 6are in a rack system I built stacked 2 high with spigots installed for dispensing. One is filled with rice the other filled with flourr. This size is easy to handle and has defiantly helped with my emergency storage needs. Thank You FAIR WINDS ~~~~ _) ~~~~ CAPT. RON

Emergency Water Use

I've been using 4 of these barrels for emergency drinking water storage for 7 years. Keep them outside, under a tarp. Have held up very well in all weather. Water clean and pure at yearly change. Perfect size to move by rolling or hand cart. Bungs stay water tight (if you use the wrench!). Bung caps are very helpful too.

All your eggs in one basket

Value wise this is a great deal, see my 30 Gallon review, but it is also valuable for another reason. In the unlikely, but possible, event your water in the 55 or 30 gallon may be contaminated, you can always use this as a backup while you correct the problem, not to mention if you DO need to move water out of your house, this size, about 125lbs filled to capacity, is the only size other than a 5 gallon you could load into your vehicle and fit without major issues.

Missing a vital requirement in the product description

We just received our order of 5 of these water containers. Luckily, one of these was a Combo, which included a siphon. But it also included a wrench needed to open it. FYI--you NEED one of these in order to open the container. It's lucky that I ordered one of the Combos that had one, or else I would've been out of luck. Good product, though!
