just for my curious nature and the people that would be possible customers ....

how do you determine that your containers are actually food grade plastics .... are ALL your containers obtained from the original user source? ..... do you clean/process the containers in any fashion? ..... do you leave the original factory tagging on the containers or remove?

questions that need to answered and determined by the intended users ..... you and your family's life depend on it

highly doubt they would spend double for food grade when animal feed doesn't require it ..... storing potable water in uncontaminated food grade is even more critical than food stuffs .... leaching of imbedded chems is almost 100% guaranteed .....

A person can tell if the plastic is food grade by the symbols stamped or molded into the plastic. I have no clue exactly which symbols mean food grade, but somewhere in this forum there are the answers.

probably the biggest and long lasting "urban myth" on the prepper sites .... recycling symbol numbers don't designate food grade containers .....

Don't know how to tell myself but here in SC I bought 2 of the black ones like that and they are pickle barrels, Labeled on the outside and still had some vinegar inside. Could definately tell. BTW I paid 25.00 each for mine so his are a deal, wish I was closer. Have also been told the red ones are pepper barrels, just what I have heard so don't take my word for it.

I am apprehensive of barrels that A) are not blue and marked in some way marked "food-grade".

The best deal I have found for 55-gal water barrels is http://beprepared.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_WS%20B700_A_name_E_Water%20Barrel%20-%2055%20Gallon%20Drum

Would love to know more about the company and where the barrels are recycled from.

My local feed store has the red barrels with twist off lids and they are selling them as food grade barrels. I will have to check for any markings or ways to distinguish. I am buying a bunch to collect rain water runoff for utility water and livestock use. Figure in a pinch with enough of a filter it could serve to quench a thirst for us also.

The barrels I bought have a mark on the side, it looks like a glass and fork and is clearly marked "For food use".

I found this place online. I haven't made any purchases yet, but they claim to have a large variety of food grade containers. I hope that it helps.

I read somewhere that if you live near a Coca-Cola plant they will give you free barrels. I have not tried yet because it was raining and cold today. Should have went any way. I will let you know if it works.(San Antonio).
