    A Beautiful place!
    Try a mild bleach and water or vinegar and water. Not sure it will help, the chlorine smell is very strong in those drums.

    but on that note, there might be other additives in there, i would take caution and rather dispose of them and get cheap buckets from West pac in lifestyle, about R20 for the same type of bucket

    The reason is, because I want two 50L drums to mix salt and keep it in there and to keep ro water in.
