Refurbished 55 Gallon Drum Kit
55 gallon drum
Help reduce waste while saving money! A refurbished 55 gallon drum is the most inexpensive and often the most convenient way to store water. Drums have been previously used for food or beverages, and come triple hot-washed with a water jet and treated with bleach to remove residual flavors. Drum has closed top with 2 bungs (holes) for filling.
Price includes bung wrench for opening the bungs caps on the top and heavy-duty siphon for retrieving water. 25/50 foot RV water hose recommended for filling.
Delivery free to Portland area only.
Plastic bung wrench required for opening and closing the bungs (caps) on a 55 gallon drum, which cannot be opened easily with a wrench or other common tool.
If you choose to store water in a 55 gallon drum, you will need a way to get the water out when you need it. This manual siphon pump screws firmly into the bung hole at the top of your drum, and can quickly and efficiently pump water out. You need only pump until the water begins to flow, after that point it will continue on its own provided that your container is below the level of the pump.
Be sure to store the pump in a safe place where it can be accessed easily after a disaster.
