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.

55 Gal. Blue Industrial Plastic Drum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not food or drinking water grade I bought these with the intent of using for drinkable water storage. However upon receiving it they labeled not for food or drinking. If that is the case, then their online description should state so. WILL return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy if you plan to use for water Where ever they got these 2nd hand barrels. The mfg and prior company was sanded off. and it states right on it not to use for water. pretty much useless at this point.

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 55 Gallon Blue Drum Great drum for holding whatever. I was impressed with quality. We used the barrel to hold product and cut the top off. This drum is well built and I was surprised at the thickness of the entire unit. Great product for storing anything you need to store short of flammables. I would recommend this product !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good purchase, but.... The blue rain barrel is sturdy and well built, but the lid is sealed on which makes getting the connections and attachments a challenge. Otherwise, we are happy to have a means for collecting rain and reusing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thick, strong plastic and good quality. However, needs some quality control. I got four barrels ... Thick, strong plastic and good quality. However, needs some quality control. I got four barrels and three are the same height, but one is almost a full 2 inches shorter than the other three.
