These Collapsible 55 Gallon Drinking Water Drums cost the government over $800.00 each! They are super-strong, high-tech water containers, with FDA Approved Potable Water Lining, stainless fittings throughout, AND they're only 4 inches tall, and super-lightweight when empty –– only 16 pounds! Now you and your family and friends can buy these simple lifesavers for a fraction of their original cost! Six of these drums will fit in the back of a half-ton pickup, when fully loaded with water. That's over 300 gallons of water in one pickup, and you can distribute the water to various sites as you travel, or have enough water to last for weeks.
A Cable Runs Through It:
The inside of the drum has a stainless steel cable running through it, and attached to the lifting plates at each end. This gives the drum a super-strong support structure that distributes the weight throughout the entire drum, while being transported or hung from a tree with 400 pounds of water inside! The 'D”” - Rings allow you to sling load it onto a truck with a forklift, tie it down, hang it from one end, etc... all the while, the drum maintains its integrity.
These drums are built to take a licking and still hold water for years!
What you are buying with each unit:
One Collapsible FDA Approved 55 Gallon Potable Drinking Water Drum
Push Button, Rotatable Faucet Valve, with dust/insect plug, that fits the
Stainless Steel, Industry Standard 2.5 inch. Threaded Barrel Bung
2 ea. Steel ““D”” –– Rings on Stainless Steel End Plates,
Attached to a Stainless Steel Internal Cable
Red Plastic Dust/Insect Barrier Cap for Storage
2 ea. Instruction Manuals with each drum
These Collapsible Water Drums can save you and your family in a major disaster. Instead of waiting for days and weeks for water, and then only getting a gallon or two, you will have 55 Gallons to keep your family and friends alive for weeks!
You won't have to trudge to the supply point and wait for hours in a rationing line –– your water is with you for the duration of the disaster, shower, wash dishes, wash clothes, and be around for the reconstruction, too. In the meantime, these drums are great for outdoor activities, large groups, fast, portable water transportation, easy empty storage/shipping, etc...
We know you can't rely on the government to take care of you in a massive disaster like New Orleans, or a major Earthquake in Los Angeles The evacuation of Houston alone took over three days! Major cities are just too big for anyone to support in an immediate disaster situation. Carry your water supply with you and you will survive comfortably without worry.
These drums are for use with POTABLE WATER ONLY!
We will ship within 2 days after payment in-full is received. These drums are in the warehouse and ready to go now!

As a note for cheapskates, 2 years ago I bought a few used foodservice 55-gallon plastic drums. The ones I got specifically were for gatorade concentrate, so their previous contents were not only non-toxic but also a flavor that couldn't taint the water. The price? $30 each from my choice of several vendors.
Two of 'em stood up nicely inside my 91 Trooper on the way to burning man :) getting them out, and safely onto the ground while they were full... that was another story. :REExeSwimmingHL:
These collapsible ones for $99 are probably a nicer product, especially being able to hook them and hang them - not to mention that they are made to dispense water so they're likely more user friendly.

I'm not trying to be an ***, but I fail to see how these would be especially useful. Pretty neat, but not sure of the application.
For portability, I would not want over 400 lbs. of water in one container, and for the garage, I would want the hard plastic containers for durability reasons.
