55 Gallon Water Storage Containers

One of the best methods of storing water for yourself or your family is with a 55 gallon water storage container. If you consider you should store 1 to 3 gallons of water per person per day, then large water drums are the best manner in which to do so.

There are several places on the internet where you can order water storage containers. If 55 gallons is too large for you, you can find them in 5, 10, 20 and 30 gallon varieties. One place to start your search is at Nitro-Pak.com. You can also find 55 gallon drums in our online store . If you are looking to go larger, there are places that will sell water containers with over 200 gallons of capacity. We have one version of these in our online store as well.

A couple of things you must consider when you purchase these water vessels on the internet:

  • Pay attention to the freight charges. Nitro-pak includes the freight in their price. Many others do not. Because of their size, these water containers are considered an oversized item, thus, the freight costs are more than the actual price of the barrel itself.
  • Be sure to purchase the special tool (wrench) used to open the water container. These are often sold separately.
  • Also be sure to purchase a pump so you can get the water out easily. Again, these are usually sold separately, but they are relatively inexpensive.

Be sure to follow our water storage guidelines. They will help you with the steps in keeping your water pure.
