I guess because this was posted some years ago... great instructions by the way... that virtually everyone who has these food grade poly containers is selling them for at least 15 dollars. By the time you add the hardware you are certainly into 30 total. So it can get pretty expensive pretty quickly... certainly approaching the cost of a new one. I need a second barrel because the first fills up so quickly but really cannot see spending another 50 or 60. Whatever you save on water you spend on an empty plastic bin. Clearly your components on this do it yourselfer are vastly better than the premade stuff.. All their fittings are plastic and, as you pointed out, one good bump and you bust that spigot in seconds. If I could find an empty barrel for free I would be golden.
