Re: Rusted water drums - what to do?

The Clinton Community Garden has piped in water from the street due to a 
grant we wrote a number of years ago,  but when we rain used  barrels (we 
still  have one)  , we used plastic or wood in order to avoid the rust 

We scrounged the plastic barrels that we had and I suggest that your guy do 
the same.  Or  ya need to find metal drums that are rust proof. Capisce?

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman

 This from a gardener in Philly:
 Our water barrels got really rusty. I emptied them out, but I'm
 concerned about using them now.  Do you have any advice?  Can they be
 cleaned, how much rust is ok?
