You appear to be in the Albany area....if so, how about these.
Try any recycler, as many of the drums end up with them.
Depends upon his water needs, for watering a few containers and such,
this is a good thing.
An even cheaper solution, if one isn't too picky about the looks and
has a bit o' room, is one of the "bag" pools, like Intex manufactures.
Six and eight foot by 30 inch deep pools can be had for like next to
nothing and hold.....oh....lots of hundreds of gallons of water....I'm
not looking up the formula.
Here's a 12 footer for 32 bucks
Sorry about the way long link....Cabela's search pool --> easy set
If all else fails you can always buy one online. Just do a Google search
for "food-grade drum" (without the quotes) and you will have enough hits to
keep you busy for a long time. You should be able to narrow the hits down
geographically pretty easily.
If you have a Tractor Supply store in your area they are worth a look too.
This would make a really great water storage tank:
Why does food grade matter for collecting rain, rain isn't food grade.
And all wooden barrels are food grade unless used and contaminated
with toxins. Most folks use a clean heavy weight plastic trash can to
collect rain from downspouts.
I buy big barrels that have been used for the importation of olives in bulk
before repacking. I buy them from my local produce store - most produce
stores have them in this country. Not knowing which country you live in, I
cant' be more specific about where you could search.
I bought one of these last summer for $120.
1000L and set up at the back of my garage. I stacked it on 3 wooden pallets.
It came in to the country with a detergent in it. A thorough clean got rid
of most of the residue. I use it for the garden, not for drinking water.
