Re: Has anyone tried

the 28 gallon plastic barrels went into the compartments of my bus much easier than the 55 gallon ones. They are about 3 inches in diameter smaller,and a lot shorter, have the same 2 inch pipe thread bung holes and just fit with the bung facing the frame rail. I can get 6 on each side. I get them from the pepsi plant cause they toss them out. I mostly use the 55 gallon ones for rain barrels.

Re: Has anyone tried

Yes, I also use the 30 gallon barrels for the same reason. I don't want to lose my ground clearance. The bung adapters I got at www.usplastic.com.

This one is for the bung with the buttress thread: http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.a ... rchresults

This one for the other bung with the NPT: http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.a ... rchresults

These both convert to 3/4" NPT. If you go to Home Depot in the PVC section, you will find an adapter that converts 2" NPT to 2" PVC straight glue fitting, and then another adapter to go down to 1.5" for a standard drain pipe.

Take a close look at the existing bung plugs if your barrels have them. I realized after ordering mine from usplastic that the ones I already had were set up so you can just drill out the center and there is a 3/4" threaded hole in the middle ready to use. D'oh!
