The barrel is good, comes with a wrench, etc. The pump is cheap plastic, might fail on the first day of real use. That's OK, because the price of both together, and free shipping, was less than the barrel alone on other sites. The pump will tide me over until I find a heavier duty one that will last if the lights go out for a prolonged period. The treatment is for 30 gal, which I found annoying considering it's a 55 gal tank.
I discovered the Berkey Filter after ordering this, and realized I would have been better off putting the money toward a Berkey. It's hard to argue with 12000 gallon lifespan (2x 6000 gal filter inserts).
