This may not be the correct place for this question, or it might already have been answered even though I can't find it, but here goes.
I've been looking at getting 1-2 55 gallon water drums, the blue pastic ones, to put in my garage. The problem being, I know plastic doesn't go so well in heat, and it gets up to ~95 in there during the day, worse outside. I can't find anything saying how well the drums hold up to consistent temperature like that. It seems like they should be fine, but I know what happens when you assume. I'd rather not have 110 gallons of water in my garage, seeing as I still have quite a bit stored in there that I'd prefer not get soaked. Even though it is all up on pallets, I'd rather not risk it.
Does anyone have a link or anything else to the 'recommended' temperature ranges for storing these? Or even just some personal experience would be nice. I've found a place in the local area with food-grade barrels for $15, so I'd love to get started. I'd feel a lot better about my preps with that much water put away.
