Answer: 
Yes, the barrel can be placed on it's side - just make sure you have tightened the bungs on the top to avoid leaking. It is also important that you have it stabilized to avoid rolling away. A filled 55 gallon barrel is quite heavy and could be dangerous.

Answer: 
It's made of the same HDPE plastic as your lawn mower gas can. Bear in mind, however, that it holds 11 times more gas than a 5 gallon can. It's not steel. Do want a storage drum or a bomb?

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Into every life a little rain must fall. And you can use it to cut back on the county water bill. Excellent Product. I bought two to go atop a hefty home-made stand to collect downspout rain water for our day lillies, phlox, tulips, jonquils, juniper, blueberries, and tomatos. (The stand is 2' high so we can gravity-feed 110 gallons--a little less than a half-ton-- of water to the various plant beds.) The barrels were not blemished, and they have graduated scales in gallons. The white plastic is translucent, so you can tell how much water you've collected. I plan to mask these scales to keep them visible after I eventually paint the barrels green. Zinnser B.I.N will prime the plastic surface when new, but I'm going to let a season of solar UV break down the anti-paint surface compound a little. The B.I.N will never come off, then. Other useful parts: Dixon 60401 Polypropylene Pipe and Welding Fitting, Bulkhead, 3/4" NPT Female, 1-3/8" Hole Size. DEWALT D180022 1-3/8-Inch Standard Bi-Metal Hole Saw. Oatey 14209 Mystic Rainwater Collection System. Brass plumbing thread to hose bib converter (for bulkhead connector). Hose bibs. PVC Pipe, rubber 4" to 2" adapter. Barbed connectors, etc. We've used the barrels for all our plant-watering for the month of August, and we still have about 40 gallons on hand...until it rains again, of course. We have another seller's plastic barrels for a second system, but the Home Depot units are much better quality. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rainbarrel Bought my second Rainbarrel this year very happy no issues easy to set up September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly as described and cheaper than alternatives. I have purchased ~16 barrels now from Home Depot and they have been exactly as described and work well for my need. August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 55 GAL Rain Barrel Ease to assemble good quality but if the top can open, that would be nice. December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by better than blue Great and stable, you can see liquid levels easily. November 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plastic drum Solid heavy duty construction with integral(Non removable) lid. October 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very light when empty Very light to carry around. You can paint it. It was very difficult for me to install a hose bib, but finally I did it. It has no removable lid, Very well sealed June 23, 2015
