    I order a lot of items from Walmart.com and normally do not take the time to rate the product but felt compelled to write a review based on this item and the support service I received. First, I ordered this storage kit with some other items. The other items arrived pretty quickly as usual but noticed that the water storage kit was no where to be seen. I waited an extra day...just in case the delivery people made a mistake...hey we are all human. Well, the next day came and went. I never had a problem before with any previous orders so I search endlessly for a number to contact on the Walmart site. Well, it appears there is no number, you have to EMAIL them. I am thinking...this is going to be a nightmare. So on I went and filled out an email stating I never received my water kit. After hitting the send button...I sat wondering if they will ever get it and when they would respond. The next day, I am checking my emails as usual and noticed there was one from Walmart....it stated they received my email..checked into it and discovered that the water storage kit was lost in transit. LOST IN TRANSIT...what?..lol...this is a very large item and it comes boxed...how do you lose something like this in transit? Anyway...in the same email, Walmart stated that a replacement water kit is being ordered and would be delivered shortly. Well I received the water kit just a couple days after that. I was impressed!! The water storage kit is a great deal. It comes with the everything you need to store the water. [water stabilizer, pump and wrench to open and close the top openings] I have searched many sites and the cost is comparable and I will probably order another one from Walmart. Very pleased with the product and Walmart customer service (even though I did not talk with anyone) with how they replaced the "lost in transit" product with lightning speed! I'm still in shock at how fast they responded!!

    Good product but just to make sure that people know that the container itself is one piece and does not open except for the two round openings on top. Also the Auqamira product that comes with it will keep your water safe and useable for 5 years.

    This item will certainly do the trick. There are several areas for improvement that I have observed, they are the following: 1) Does not specify in item description or included literature if plastic material is BPA free. The assumption is that it is NOT. 2) The included pump, an item which should be kept sanitary, came in a plastic bag that only covered the pump head and not the suction pipe. Please do not cheap out on the bag, how much did they really save by not bagging the whole unit??? After filling the barrel, I secured the pump to the barrel in a full bag that I had to provide myself. 3) My biggest complaint...the water treatment chemical that was included declined to specify (probably for liability reasons) how long the treated water would be good for. I realize there are many factors involved that would determine this lifetime, but guidelines of any sort were purposefully avoided on the included text (as well as on their website). A little sticker with lines for FILL DATE:, and GOOD UNTIL: was included, but it was difficult to determine what to mark on the GOOD UNTIL line. Also, the chemical included was designed to treat up to 60 gallons of water, 30 if you use half and 60 if you use all of it...well the barrel is 55 gallons. Some calculations had to be made in order to arrive at the proper ratio of chemical. Overall I love this package, it just took a little longer to set up than I expected. The peace of mind having stored potable water safely outweighs any hiccups involved in setup. Many websites sell the same barrel for a higher price with no water treatment chemicals and no pump/wrench!!! No complaints there. a Walmart detail>>>>I certainly enjoyed the ease of use purchasing this item online and the convenience of having the item delivered to my home was also very accomodating. However, this is an item that I would have probably opted to pick up at the store if the choice was available. For privacy reasons, I do not desire all of my neighbours knowing that I have a new set of water storage barrels. I would preferred to have picked them up in my covered truck and pulled them quietly into my garage undetected but all the same, I don't think anyone noticed. Paranoid? The question is always: Am I being paranoid enough? Great barrel, thanks Walmart.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was very impressed really with this purchase. It purchased a 55 gal water purification drum for part of my Emergency Preparedness kit. It arrived quickly and freight was very reasonable for shipping to Alaska.

    Walmart did a great job delivering the container to my house, real quick and right to my front door. It came boxed up and everything I was expecting in the box was there; the barrel, pump, wrench and water treatment chemicals. I didn't have to go out and buy anything extra. I placed the barrel in my side yard, out of the sun and covered with a tarp to keep it clean. I hope I never need to use it but I know for the next five years, I have water available in-case the big hits. The pump is complete and easy to use. The chemicals are supplied and also easy to use. I would recommend this barrel as it is good insurance if you ever need water in a pinch. Great price too and cheaper than Costco's barrel.

    A tool came with this, but I'm having a hard time actually getting the lid off and don't want to force it if it's not really supposed to come off.

    • A. The tool is for the bung, the cap that is threaded. Removing the large plastic top, not really a wise idea since it is sealed for a reason. The threads on the top should allow you to remove the cap, if it will not come off with the tool or gets stripped the option left if try really hard to turn it and hope the threads hold up but if they strip you have 90 days to return it.

    • A. The lid does not come off. The wrench is used to tighten the plugs that close up the top. Mine came with two plugs and the wrench fits into the plug and you turn it clock-wise to close the plugs.

    • A. The top of the barrel is NOT supposed to come off. Use the tool to open the bung plugs only. The tool can be used to open the tops of 5 gallon paint buckets.

    • A. After quite a bit of reading there is agreement that if the water is treated with the water purification kit that comes with the water barrel it will keep drinkable for 5 years. If you fill the barrel with water out of the tap it is already treated and will keep for 6 months and will then need to be emptied and refilled. Keep the barrel out of the sun and in a cool dark place.

    • A. Under ideal conditions, 50 F to 85 F and with sodium hypochlorite drops added to the mixture, sealed and stored in a dark clean area, the water will last 5 years as they claim. If you slosh the container and fol-low the directions letting a small amount out of the ports and then not opening the water even for a moment.

    • A. I've purchased 13 of these now, and they come perfectly clean and ready to fill. If you're concerned about it, you can easily put a gallon or two of water inside and move the barrel around to clean the inside. The barrel itself is pretty light weight.

    • A. ALL water storage containers would need to be washed out, filled with a small amount of water, rolled and slashed and then dumped. This insures for our own safety and the peace of mind, we have covered all the bases. Pretty sure the company who makes these would never take an extra step to make sure there is no residue in the container, Dust etc.
