Customer Questions & Answers

Does this Barrel have an opening or drain at the bottom to connect a garden hose?

Asked by: Niknoksigok
No - but easy enough to add a drain-tap. I did to mine - just look online for "rain-barrel spigot". You will need to drill a hole sized to fit the spigot - my spigot came with instructions as to size, and jI ust bought a hole saw the right diameter (fits on a drill) and drilled the hole. If you look on YouTube, it shows how to use a string to help you connect the spigot parts inside to outside the barrel, when you only have bung hole openings to work with.

are these food grade barrels?

Asked by: OLI123
"It is important to note that not all HDPE containers are considered food-grade. If they are not labelled specifically as "food safe," the container should be lined with a food-grade plastic bag before storing food in it." http://www.ehow.com/way_5819448_do-tell-food-grade-plastic_.html

Can this barrel be used in its side to store water? Or is it meant to be used upright only?

It won't fit in my vehicle when full of water unless it's on its side.
Asked by: DroughtbusterDan
My opinion: Upright only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy I was looking for a container where i could store water. This barrel is perfect since it comes with screw caps to secure its contents inside or to apply an adapter to draw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well upside down for rainwater The bung hole threads (the finer on the two) adapt perfectly for 2" PVC in my upside down implantation of a multi barrel manifold for rainwater collection. No leaks. 22mm thickness is sturdy but easy to make holes.
