15 Gallon Poly Drum Closed Head

Drums are great for storing fluids, specifically water. 15 gallon drums are portable and small, making them perfect for emergency situations and easier to move than 55 gallon barrels.

Every heavy duty drum is made of industrial strength high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE), similar to HPDE but more durable. HMWPE is corrosion and dent free, excellent for indoor or outdoor use. HMWPE is thick, light blocking, BPA-free and FDA-compliant plastic. This means your water can be stored safely indefinitely!

15 gallon drums will have two openings on the top called bungs, either two 2”, or one 2” and another ¾”. These are for filling and dispensing the drum’s contents, and can be plugged with the included rubber seals when not in use.

Bung wrenches can help make it easier to close and open the container, but not necessary. Screwdrivers and pliers can also be used.

How heavy is a 15 gallon drum?

A gallon of water weighs about 8.3 pounds.  When filled with water, a 15 gallon drum will weigh ~125 pounds.  Unless you’re capable of curling 150 pounds, the handles are only supposed to be used when the drum is empty, so it’s best to use a dolly to move a filled drum.
