    Cool Clinton! I was going to propose Ekapa Drums as well - their drums were around R700 each last I bought some (for my brother-in-law)...

    the only problem for calvin is that they are in ekapa, but there should be similar places in kzn.

    I know what you looking for Calvin.

    I have some in excellent condition that will hopefully become available around April, but these have already been promised to Reefer.

    containers

    Hi Calvin

    I am also looking for those containers.
    check GREIF South Africa (PTY) Ltd.

    They do not list the 1000l containers on their products page but have a pic of it on the home page.

    I sent the jhb guys an email but no luck with a reply
    check GREIF South Africa (PTY) Ltd. for the kzn contacts.

    Greif & the HVL group seem to be linked
    Good luck

    (ps so far prices R500-800 second hand)

    I will have access to 8 of them. Very good condition, being used to store vinegar currently so are easy to clean.

    We got them "free" as the vinegar was transported in them.

    When they do eventually become available they will sell for R500 each. I'll keep you in mind if Reefer is no longer interested.

    I think they will be fine as long as they are clean. Exotics in Boksburg used them as live rock curing/holding tanks at one stage.

    Richardsbay Chemicals sells them for R300 and if you speak to Gerhard he will be able to tell if it was used for something that will not harm marines. Its reasonably close and I think cheap. Speak to him, he is quite a nice ou to talk to and likes to help.
