    15 Gallon Barrels

    Working on a floating rig for my dredge, need 4 of the 15 gallon drums. Have had zero luck. Local dry cleaners, floor cleaners, craigslist, nada. Any ideas?

    try your local car wash. I have gotten quite a few barrels from mine. 15, 30 and 50 gallon size.

    Floaty Foam coated in plastic is spendy around here. Costs more than manufactured dredge floats. How did I not think of car washes. Going to check em out Monday!

    Also look in their trash cans for the plastic tube in the spray bottles to use in sucker bottles. I've found a LOT of them !

    Marijuana farmers often get their fertilizers in 15 gallon barrels.

    Go to a plumbing supply house like George T Sanders or Ferguson plumbing the use them for Poly Propylene glycol containers for boiler systems antifreeze.
