Product Details: 55-Gallon Water Storage Kit
55 Gallon Water Barrel
Augason Farms 55 gallon water barrel is BPA-free and produced from food-grade Polyethylene. Be sure your family has the water they need in an emergency with an easily-accessible supply of safe, potable water for drinking, cleaning, cooking and sanitation. Measures 22.5"w x 35"h.
Hose, Pump and Opener
Includes two fittings (1 two-inch BTR and 1 two-inch NPS), an easy to use hand siphon pump, and a 6 foot siphon hose. Also includes a pail and bucket lid opener (sometimes referred to as a bung wrench or drum bung wrench) which allows easy opening of barrel’s drum bung as well as food storage pails and buckets without lid damage. Store an opener on top of your food supply pails and water barrels so you can get to your food or water quickly and easily during an emergency.
Aquamira Water Treatment Bottles (2)
Ideal for large water treatment needs (up to 60 gallons), but packaged small enough to fit into your pocket. Treatment drops meet stringent EPA guidelines and are effective on bacteria, viruses and cysts without leaving an unpleasant aftertaste. The four-year shelf life is not compromised when the bottle is opened.
Are You Prepared with Enough Water?
It is recommended that you are prepared with a minimum of 1 gallon of water per person per day. That’s two quarts for drinking and two quarts for cooking and hygiene. For example, a family of four will need approximately 12 gallons of water to get through a 72 hour emergency. For emergencies lasting seven days, the same family will need approximately 28 gallons of water.
Don’t Leave Water to Chance
Remember, water sources can become tainted when exposed to toxins from floodwaters or fire residue, among other common infiltrators. If you are not confident of clean water availability during an emergency, this kit is critical to the wellbeing of your family.
Water Storage Tips
When storing water barrels, it is recommended that barrels are not stored directly on cement or in constant sunlight, nor that the water be allowed to freeze. It is also recommended that barrels be stored no more than two barrels high for safety purposes.

This is an entire kit, including water treatment drops, a siphon hose (for adding water or removing it), a hand pump, a lid opener, and the main event, a 55-gallon, BPA-free water barrel.
We placed this barrel near the inside of our garage door, on the side of the garage closest to the outdoor faucet of our home, so that a hose attached to the faucet could more easily reach it, and also so that when the water is periodically emptied from the barrel and replaced, it will be easier to drain it and let the water run down the driveway.
This barrel is easy to fill, and it is not hard to empty either. I know this because though we have not yet emptied this particular barrel, we own another one just like it and emptying it to move from one house to another was no problem.
This barrel does not leak, and the lid fits tightly.
All in all, I highly recommend this product.
