Does anyone know where I could get a 55 gallon barrel to use for water that super expensive? I don't mind cleaning it out but I don't want to pay $75-$100 for one.

I found this ad on craigslist but Delmar is too far for a $20 :

It's a great price but I'm never down that way.

Just keep watching CL. It took a while, but some popped up last year in Middletown for $10/each as long as you picked them up yourself. I grabbed a couple then. it took a couple of washes to get the soy sauce taste out of the water but since then good to go.

I'll keep an eye out, are you looking for threaded bungs or open top with a locking ring?

Either one would suffice. I'm just looking for an option to add more water storage because we live in a townhouse now so our options are limited.

They sell food grade 55 gallon drums.... Don't remember the price, but they were competitive when I got them there a few years ago. Also had rain barrels....

W. C. Littleton in Laurel has many different kinds. 55gal Closed head Plastics (food grade) were $10. Metal 55gal (food grade) were 20. They have IBC, open/closed metal/plastics. A good selection really.
