    I work for a Hyundai dealership and order bulk trans fluid, it comes in 55 gal drums that the mfr does not want back. I used to put them on craigslist for scrap metal but after seeing this, I will be using them. Awesome ideas!

    I want something to water the vege garden when I’m not there. Thought these might be useful as sort of drip feeders – you run a hose out of a hole in the drum, fill them up with water and, um! Well, worth a try.

      Rose: Just make sure the barrels never contained anything toxic in them before using them. You might be better off using food grade plastic barrels
