Several years ago while storing water in my garage, I decided to use 55-gallon poly drums for the job.  Now – I live in a pretty mild climate, but temperatures do dip into the teens and 20’s on occasion.   I wish I would have known about the Powerblanket… it could have saved me a big headache.  You see.. when water freezes, it expands. And when it expands, the ice will pop open a metal or poly drum in a heart beat.  Freeze protection becomes critical when storing liquids in drums and barrels especially in cold climates.

Until recently, band heaters and immersion heating rods were the only options for trying to heat liquid in barrels.  But the inherent risks associated with band heaters and immersion rods made them dangerous, costly, and difficult to use.  So I gladly accepted the offer to try a new patented technology from the developers of the Powerblanket.  They boast a feature rich product that is virtually indestructible:
