    Perfect for emergency water storage
    Warning: you need a bung wrench to open this item - they are inexpensive. You also need a barrel pump unless you intend to siphon. These are not so inexpensive I ordered 4 of these and stacked them against my basement wall. I also recommend cutting the bottom out of the cardboard boxes they are shipped in to cover them. Put a one inch thick pine or plywood board over the top so you can store things on top of them

    Surprised
    I was surprised to find that the top was not removable. It is useless for my needs.

    Just what I was looking for

    I wanted 2 water barrels for water storage and they had to be brand new. I visited a local preppers expo and all they had were used barrels and they were priced about the same as your new barrels. It was a no brainer to order from Walmart.

    Good product

    The barrel is a good product. A bung wrench should be included or at least mentioned as necessary as well as means of recovering water either by pump or siphon. I would still recommend it especially at the sale price.

    Awesome drum barrel

    This drum came exactly as described and will make a world of difference for me while hauling water to drink and cook with. I was hauling gallon jugs to a relatives house, filling, carrying back out to my vehicle then hauling home and carrying 6 or 7 cases to inside the house. Now we can take these drums (I also bought the drum with kit) and fill them at the water company (only 50 cents a drum) and fill my jugs from there which is so much easier. I am a little concerned on how long the plastic pump will last though. And it cost around $65 to get the hose to hook on at the water company but it is an excellent investment and well worth the money. We plan on making a skid and setting the 2 drums on it to make it easier to get off of with the truck (I have to fill the jugs up out of 1 drum while it is still on the truck, then set it off, and then fill the full drum into the empty drum to get it off of the truck)that way I can fill when the are on the ground. All in all they are a great price for the money and a great investment.

    Perfect !

    Sturdy , clean , and just as described. Perfect for disaster preparedness!

    1. Bad idea. If the water freezes, the pressure of the ice expansion will at least weaken the barrel if it doesn't rupture it.
