Siphon Pump for 55 gallon drum
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.
Plastic bung wrench for opening and closing the bungs (caps) on a 55 gallon drum, which cannot be opened easily with a wrench or other common tool.
When filling your barrels, fill to the close to the top, but leave a little room for any expansion caused by ice in cold weather. Do not over-tighten the bungs.
